Laser Therapy for Spider Vein Treatment

Most people with spider veins opt to ignore them since they are not harmful or painful. Spider veins are damaged veins that appear on the face and legs. These lines appear as thin lines, branches, or webs. Spider veins can be red, blue, or purple, affecting our appearance and general aesthetics.

There are different cosmetic treatments for spider veins. These corrective treatments include compression socks, sclerotherapy, surgery, and laser therapy.

Laser Treatment

Like the term suggests, this treatment involves using a laser to treat spider veins that are small and close to the surface. Laser treatment focuses on an intense beam of light which causes the spider vein to clot and eventually dry.

Laser therapy is one of the less invasive cosmetic procedures. There are no injections involved like in sclerotherapy. This makes laser treatment a suitable option for dealing with spider veins on the face. There are always risks associated with this treatment. However, they are mild and fade over time if performed by an expert.

After undergoing laser therapy, there are possible side effects that vary from one patient to another. Some of these effects include pain, swelling, discoloration, bleeding, crusting, and scarring. However, when undergoing laser treatment at our facility, side effects should not be a concern.
