How it Works
Spider Vein & Varicose Vein Removal
During laser spider vein removal, light passes through the skin and delivers pulses of energy to the targeted vein without causing any harm to the surrounding tissue. As the blood absorbs the light, it heats up and shrinks the targeted vein. The vein eventually completely disappears. Laser spider vein removal doesn’t require any injections or incisions. The procedure may cause patients to only feel a minimal amount of heat. Laser spider vein removal typically lasts about 20 minutes but may take more or less time depending on the severity of the veins and the size of the treatment area. For optimal results, patients may need multiple sessions of several laser spider vein removal.
Laser varicose vein removal, also called endovenous ablation therapy, is used to treat deeper varicose veins. During laser varicose vein removal, the physician uses a small tube to deliver laser energy into blood vessels. The physician begins the procedure by applying topical anesthesia and makes a small incision for tube insertion. At the tip of the tube is a probe that emits laser energy. Once the probe has been inserted, the laser energy shrinks vein walls so that blood is no longer able to flow through them. Instead, blood is redirected to healthy veins, resulting in healthy skin appearance. Treatment not only addresses blood vessels, but also minimizes the appearance of connected veins on the surface of the skin.
