Patients that receive the laser light treatment we use to treat spider veins liken the laser to the sensation of a snapping rubber band. However, patients may choose to receive a topical anesthesia or ice to be applied prior to treatment to minimize this sensation. Multiple laser treatments over a period of several weeks may be required for larger veins. Meanwhile a single treatment lasting less than 15 minutes may be used to treat smaller veins. Patients may experience redness in the treated areas, but this typically clears in a few days.
Our aestheticians will be sure to discuss all of your spider vein treatment options during your initial consultation. From there, we will help you make the best decision for your budget, aesthetic goals, skin type, and lifestyle.
