Exposure to the sun, strong cleaners, age, and genetics can cause broken veins (or broken capillaries) on the face and legs. Although spider veins pose no medical problems, they can detract from the natural beauty of your skin.
Our modern laser technologies can help minimize the appearance of spider veins, rosacea, small hemangiomas, cherry hemangiomas, and port wine stains while preserving delicate surrounding skin!*
We use state-of-the-art lasers to gently destroy and close broken veins in a nonsurgical treatment that typically takes 10 to 20 minutes. After your spider vein treatment, your body will gradually absorb the treated veins until they are no longer visible. Some blood vessels disappear immediately, but others fade or disappear over several weeks. In some cases, treated blood vessels disappear, return, and require additional treatment. In most cases, it takes more than 1 treatment to clear all broken capillaries in a given area.*
During laser vein therapy, most people describe having a slight stinging sensation that requires no anesthesia. After treatment, you might have mild, temporary (a day or 2) inflammation, especially if you have laser treatment on the delicate skin under your eyes.
You can return to most normal activities immediately after treatment for spider veins, but you should avoid vigorous exercise, harsh skin cleansers, and the sun for several days. To protect the outstanding effects of your spider vein treatment, use only gentle cleansers and moisturizers without alcohol and always wear a sunscreen with a skin protective factor (SPF) of 30 when you are outside.*
*Disclaimer: With laser vein treatments, there is no guarantee of specific results and the results may vary.
