Spider and varicose veins are caused when the valves in the veins are not pushing blood back to the heart properly. As a result, the blood can begin to pool up. These veins can be embarrassing, making people self-conscious about wearing certain clothes. If the veins are visible on the face, not even make-up can cover the veins completely.
At Laser MD MedSpa, spider veins can be treated with laser vein removal therapy, especially on the face, where the veins are small and too close to the surface to be efficiently collapsed with sclerotherapy.
Our laser vein removal system works by sending pulses of laser energy through the skin to the targeted veins without harming nearby tissues. As the blood absorbs the light, it heats up, which causes the veins to shrink and eventually disappear. The procedure requires no injections or incisions.
Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis and generally take about 15 to 30 minutes. Three to four sessions are needed to achieve the best results.
Laser vein removal is non-invasive and allows patients to resume normal activities within minutes of the session’s completion.
