The Laser Solution for Facial and Spider Veins

Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins are red, bluish or purple veins than can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity. Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment during a routine office visit. Laser treatment eliminates unwanted blemishes and promotes healthier skin.

How does a laser help?

With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser selectively coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.

How many treatments are required?

Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically one to two treatments are recommended.

Can we be sure that this will work on my veins?

This is something that must be determined with each patient individually but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.

Is this treatment difficult?

No. This non-invasive treatment process takes between 10 minutes to about 20 minutes, depending on your situation. After treatment there is no down time which means you can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
