Who Could Benefit?

  • Women and men with spider veins on the face.

Treatment Goals

  • Removal of some or all of the spider veins.

The Procedure

No anesthesia is required. The doctor or nurse traces the spider veins with the laser beam, which injures the internal lining of the tiny blood vessels. This injury causes the vessels to disappear. Usually, multiple treatments are necessary for complete clearing of spider veins.

Recovery

The treated skin is red for 3-4 hours following the procedure. Some patients develop purple dots or blisters, which clear in two to three weeks.

Insurance

Spider veins are considered a cosmetic problem. Therefore, health insurance usually does not cover the cost of procedure.

Note

The suitability of laser treatment of spider veins is determined during the office consultation. All procedures have risks. Minor complications occur occasionally. Major complications are quite unusual.
