Laser removal of spider veins is one of the most effective, non-invasive, non-surgical, and least painful methods to treat unsightly spider veins on the legs and face. With Lani’s 20+ years of laser treatment experience and her artistic eye for detail, working with her will ensure the best results. These treatments erase spider veins for smoother, clearer skin.
Our Nd:Yag laser has a wavelength of 1064 nanometers. This wavelength targets hemoglobin (blood). Each vessel is traced with pulses of laser light. As the energy is absorbed by the blood in the vessel, heat is created and the vessel wall is destroyed. The vein will die and the body will clear away the tissue as it would clear away a bruise. Treatments with our laser require no anesthetics and no downtime, with very low risk of side effects. People with all skin colors can be safely treated.
While side effects are uncommon, the skin over the treated vessel will appear red and swollen for a few hours after treatment. Bruising is the most common side effect. Because the laser generates heat within the vessel, there is a small risk of a water blister. Rarely this may result in a change in skin pigmentation at that site or scarring. Hemosiderin staining is a brownish stain from the hemoglobin in the blood. This stain may linger under the skin.
Clients often differ in what they want out of their treatment. Some want their veins completely gone; others may want them to just look better. While many clients may need only one treatment to accomplish their goal, others should expect 2 or more treatments for clearing. Treatments are usually 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Once a vein is completely dead and reabsorbed, it should be gone. However, a person who has already made spider veins may have the tendency to make more in the future. Any newly developing vein can be quickly treated.
You may continue with normal daily activities, however, you need to refrain from hot baths or exercise for 3 days. Depending on your vessels, you may be wearing an ace wrap for 3 days as well. These wraps may be removed for showering and reapplied during these 3 days. These minor restrictions will enhance the outcome of your treatment.
