Laser Treatment for Spider Veins
Laser treatment (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) is carried out by sending strong bursts of light into the vein, to make the smaller veins fade. No injection, needles or anesthesia is required. After treatment, spider veins fade over several months but may not disappear totally. Side effects include redness, bruising, itching and rarely skin breakdown. It is important to understand that new vessels may later develop in the same area. At your initial consultation, you will be advised whether this treatment is appropriate for you.
