About Spider Veins (leg and facial)

Spider veins or telangiectasias, are wavy, thin, reddish-purple veins on the legs, or on the face. Spider veins affect as many as 80% of all women as they grow older, and a large percentage of men as well. Although spider veins are not usually a medical problem, they may make you self-conscious about your appearance.

Laser Vein Treatments

Laser vein removal is an easy, fast and effective way to treat superficial veins. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser beam of light heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused on the vein and does not damage the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to twelve weeks, the vein should be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
