Our laser technologies safely and effectively treat spider veins on the face and body across all skin types. Minimal discomfort is associated with laser treatment of spider veins.
How does laser spider vein removal work?
Our Fotona Nd:YAG laser has a wavelength of 1064 nanometers. This wavelength targets hemoglobin or 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 Fotona Nd:YAG laser require no anesthetics and no downtime, with very low risk of side effects. People with all skin colors can be safely treated.
How long will it take for my veins to disappear?
Each client’s body will have its own time schedule for how quickly veins will be reabsorbed. This could range from days to weeks and possibly months.
How many treatments will I need?
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 6 weeks to 6 months apart.
Will my treated veins come back?
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.
What is the cost of laser spider vein removal?
Cost will depend on how many veins you have and the time it takes to treat them. Many clients can be treated in as little as 15 minutes. An assessment of cost will be determined at your free consultation.
Are there activity restrictions immediately after treatment?
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 your treatment result.
