Laser spider vein removal can be used to safely minimize the appearance of facial veins and spider veins on the legs. Although spider veins are not known to cause other symptoms, they can become very visible on the legs and face and are difficult to cover with makeup/spray-tans.
Laser spider vein removal is optimal for fair to light-brown skin types – V-VI cannot be treated.
A complimentary consultation is available to determine if you are the right candidate for this procedure.
Depending on the area that needs lasering, the average person may need anywhere from two to six laser treatments.
We recommend waiting at least 8 weeks before the next treatment as resolution of the vessels continues throughout the entire period.
Results are not immediate, but most patients see noticeable changes in the color and general visibility of the veins in two to six weeks. The body will absorb the lasered vessels in three to four months.

How to Prepare for the Treatment
Major preparation isn’t required, however there are some small steps you can take in order to ensure a successful treatment.
Avoid sun exposure for 4-6 weeks, aspirin at least a week before the procedure.
You also can’t be treated if you have a spray tan or artificial tan. On the day of, avoid creams, lotions and moisturizers and wear comfortable loose clothing.
With a small handheld device, one of our specialized laser therapists will deliver each laser light pulse to the area being treated.
During the treatment, you may experience slight discomfort with each laser pulse. Many patients say that the feeling is similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. However, the discomfort isn’t too bad since the device is paired with a dynamic cooling system.
This treatment can take a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin may experience some redness and swelling to the area, which may feel like a sunburn. The discomfort can be cured with some ice and aloe vera, your laser therapist will apply some straight after your treatment.
This feeling could last either a few hours, or up to 2 days. There’s very little downtime after this treatment.
Directly after the treatment, avoid extreme heat, sun exposure, exfoliating or irritating products. If you’re going to spend time in the sun, use lots of sunscreen! Appointments should be scheduled 6-8 weeks apart.
Are you the right candidate?
There is no cure for spider veins and the treatment doesn’t prevent new spider viens from appearing. However, it can dramatically improve the look of the area, making your skin look healthy, young and beautiful.
