Spider veins, which often appear on the face or legs, develop when a group of blood vessels expands near the surface of the skin. While they are usually innocuous, they are unsightly and can keep you from wearing shorts in the summer. Our treatment offers cutting-edge technology to allow you to flaunt those legs again.
Spider veins respond to the precise energy level and wavelength of light that is used. The small spot of laser light travels through the skin and is absorbed by the blood within the vein, on the basis of its color. The resulting heat coagulates or clots the blood and collapses the already dysfunctional vein. Over time, the vein will be absorbed by the body and will disappear from sight. Slightly larger veins or reticular veins can be easily treated with sclerotherapy.
