Laser Vein Removal Before & Afters

Exploring Laser Vein Removal

Laser vein removal is a procedure that uses a highly concentrated beam of light energy to diminish both spider and varicose veins. The procedure is minimally invasive, pain free, and doesn’t require any general anesthesia.

Laser vein removal may be an effective treatment for individuals with spider veins and varicose veins. The ideal candidate doesn’t smoke, is physically healthy, and doesn’t have any keloid scars. Because laser vein removal can affect skin tone, we recommend speaking to a provider to determine the best type of laser for treatment before undergoing treatment. (Individuals with severe varicose veins may require vein removal surgery.) 

How it Works

The laser emits a highly concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessel, thereby destroying the vessel.
Unlike older laser treatments, modern laser removal doesn’t rupture or lead to extensive bruising.
The laser’s deeper wavelength allows the light to reach the vessel without affecting the skin.
The deeper wavelength enables safe treatment of all skin types without causing any burns or blisters.
Laser vein removal procedures are minimally invasive and are performed without the use of general anesthesia or sedatives.

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.  


The number of treatments necessary to see visible results will vary according to the type and size of the vein.


Patients will typically see dramatic improvement after the first treatment.


Additional treatments are usually necessary to achieve full results.


During treatment, most patients experience minimal discomfort or no pain at all.

Extra Care

Patients with sensitive skin may need a very strong topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
