Non-invasive, less expensive and safer than vein injection. It may only require one treatment and recovery time is quick
Unwanted blood vessels commonly known as spider veins( telangiectasias.) can appear on the legs, face and other parts of the body. These tiny veins are usually blue or purplish, and present in clusters. Spider vein treatment can usually be accomplished quickly and comfortably through the use of advanced laser technology.
Vascular lasers selectively target unwanted or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, whilst minimizing damage to surrounding normal skin structures. Modern vascular lasers are very safe and effective when used by professionally trained technician.

What causes blood vessels to become damaged?
Within healthy veins and capillaries, there are valves, the job of the valves is to ensure blood is flowing in one direction only. If this valve weakens or becomes damaged, the blood may struggle to flow in the correct direction, and it can begin to pool inside the vein. Over time, this can cause a bulge in the vein that branches out, resulting in spider veins.
Causes of leg and facial veins;
Occupations that involve a lot of standing, such as nurses, hair stylists, teachers, and factory workers.
Hormonal influences of pregnancy, puberty, and menopause.
The use of birth control pills.
Postmenopausal hormonal replacement.
A history of blood clots.
How does laser vein therapy work?
During a laser vein removal treatment a concentrated beam of light energy from the laser is directed precisely at the small blood vessels. The light penetrates below the surface of the skin and the heat causes the blood within the tiny vessels to coagulate. The walls of the vein collapse, blood flow is stopped and over the next two to eight weeks the vein is absorbed into the body and disappears. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface where it should be.
Do laser vein treatments hurt?
A pulse of laser light feels like a small pinch or sting similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. No local anesthesia is required and the procedure is well tolerated by most people. For people with very sensitive skin, a medical-grade topical anesthetic can be provided. Any redness or swelling should be gone within a day and you’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately.
How long will results last from vein therapy?
After your initial course of treatments, the vessels that have been treated will be gone forever. However , because those being treated are prone to developing these broken vessels, new ones may appear down the road. This is why touch-up treatments may be needed.
