Laser Treatment for Spider Veins

Spider veins are tiny superficial veins that are a common concern in women, especially after pregnancy. They also frequently occur in people who have varicose veins. Those who have spider veins and varicose veins can reduce the risk of rapid recurrence of spider veins by having the varicose veins treated first. Laser treatment for spider veins is becoming the treatment of choice while sclerotherapy is still the most widely used treatment for spider veins.

Medium and large spider veins are best treated by sclerotherapy - a chemical solution is injected into the vein to cause it to inflame and ultimately disappear. Laser therapy is most effective on small and medium-sized veins.

Laser Treatment for Spider Veins

This procedure lasts 45 minutes and is done as an outpatient, in most instances right in your doctor's office using a local anesthetic. The energy from the laser attacks the vein walls, shrinking them and closing the defective vein so that the blood cannot flow through it. This eliminates any bulging from the vein right at its source. Once the vein has been treated, the blood from the defective vein is diverted to the normal veins that are in your leg.
