    Treatment FAQ - Laser for Spider Veins  

How does LASER treat spider veins and telangiectasias?
First, effective cooling device is used to cool and protect the overlying skin. The hemoglobin within both red and blue veins absorbs the laser light that passes through the chilled skin. This absorption converts light into heat energy that raises the blood temperature beyond coagulation thus altering and destroying the blood vessel wall. The remnants of the vein are broken up and eliminated by the body.

Is laser treatment for spider veins safe for all skin types?
We have different lasers available at our center at all times. So, both light and dark complexions and even tanned skin may be treated.

What does laser treatment for spider veins feel like?
Each pulse of laser feels like a slight sting or pinch. No local anesthesia is required and most people tolerate the treatment well. The effective cooling system helps to alleviate pain. In rare occasions a topical anesthetic cream may be used.

What can I expect from laser treatment for spider veins?
Most patients note a great reduction or complete elimination of spider and small varicose veins. Multiple treatments may be necessary to optimize the results. A customized laser treatment program will be designed for you along with an estimate of how many treatments you may need in order to meet your expectations.

How long is the recovery time?
Usually no down time, though some patients can have some mild swelling for a few hours. Following the treatment, you can generally return to work and resume all regular activities immediately avoiding strenuous exercise for approximately 7-10 days.

Are there any possible side effects for  laser treatment for spider veins?
Side effects are rare. You may experience some slight reddening or local swelling at the site of treatment, but this typically goes away within hours. Bruising is possible but typically resolves quickly. Ulceration and scar is rare. Limiting sun exposure before and after each treatment will minimize the risk of complications.
