You can. There is no need to put up with those tiny red or blue annoyances that make unwanted appearances beneath your skin. With laser vein removal, you are in control of removing those pesky veins in your face or even your legs!

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are a mild form of varicose veins. They look like a faint webbing of tiny, thread-like red or blue veins that sit just beneath the skin. That distinctive, webbed appearance is what gives them their name.

These annoying veins may not only look unappealing, they may also cause a burning or itching sensation. Fortunately, removing them requires a simple procedure that won’t keep you from going about your usual daily routine.

How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?

Your skin care professional will direct a bright laser light toward the problem veins. The heat from this light shrinks the veins, which your body will then absorb over time.

Small veins might disappear immediately! Larger ones may seem darker after the treatment but will fade over the following weeks. Stubborn veins may require multiple treatments.

Does This Treatment Require Extensive Recovery?

Not at all! You can return to your regular activities almost right away after a 30-minute treatment. The only changes to your usual routine can be:

  • If you have any discomfort, you can treat it with moist cloths or cold packs.
  • After 24 hours, you should apply a quality moisturizer to the area you had treated.
