Frequently Asked Questions
How does a laser help?
With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser “selectively” coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
How many treatments are required?
Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically, one to two laser spider vein treatments are recommended.
Can we be sure that this will work on my veins?
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually, but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
Is this treatment difficult?
No. This non-invasive laser spider vein removal treatment process takes between 10 minutes to about 20 minutes, depending on your situation. After treatment, there is no down time – which means you can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
