The number of sessions required can vary based on the severity and extent of the spider veins, but typically, our clients achieve optimal results with 2 – 4 treatments, with sessions spaced 6 – 8 weeks apart. This schedule allows your skin sufficient time to heal and respond to the laser treatment, maximizing the effectiveness of each session.

Each session is quick and involves minimal discomfort, with many patients comparing the sensation to a light snap from a rubber band. After the initial consultation, most sessions last between 5 – 20 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Patient Instructions for Laser Vein Removal

To ensure the best possible results from your laser spider vein treatment, it’s important to properly prepare your skin for your appointment and to follow some simple guidelines after each session. Follow these key steps to help enhance the effectiveness of the procedure and minimize any potential discomfort:

Before Your Appointment:

  • Avoid Tanning: Avoid sun exposure and tanning products for at least two weeks before treatment.
  • Refrain From Skin Products: Do not apply any lotions, creams, or makeup on the treatment area on the day of the procedure.
  • Wear Loose Clothing: Opt for loose, comfortable clothing on the day of your appointment.

Post-Treatment Care:

  • Forgo Hot Baths: Hot baths can cause the treated veins to dilate, potentially diminishing the effectiveness of the treatment and delaying the healing process.
  • Avoid Strenuous Exercises: Engaging in strenuous exercises can increase blood flow and pressure in the veins, which may interfere with the healing of the treated areas and could lead to swelling or discomfort. Hot tubs/baths and strenuous exercise should be avoided for 1-2 weeks post treatments.
  • Apply Cool Compresses: Apply a cool compress to soothe any mild swelling or redness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are spider veins?

Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are fine, web-like networks of blood vessels visible just beneath the surface of the skin. They are usually not painful or harmful but may cause cosmetic concerns for many individuals. Spider veins are most commonly found on the legs and face.

What causes spider veins?

Spider veins are caused by various factors including hereditary predisposition, hormonal changes, occupations or activities that require prolonged standing, obesity, and conditions that increase pressure in the abdomen such as liver disease or constipation. Sun exposure and injuries can also contribute to their development. If you would like to explore treatment, contact us today!

Is the treatment painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort, often described as a small rubber band snapping against the skin.

What is the difference between spider veins vs varicose veins vs bulging veins?

Spider Veins: These are thin, surface-level blood vessels that appear as small, fine lines, web-like networks, or branches. They are primarily a cosmetic issue.

Varicose Veins: Thicker and more raised than spider veins, varicose veins can cause discomfort and are often swollen and twisted. Unlike spider veins, varicose veins might signal underlying vascular problems.

Bulging Veins: Typically refers to veins that are very prominent and swollen, often associated with significant vein disorders. These can be more extreme forms of varicose veins and may require medical evaluation and treatment due to the risk of complications like ulcers or bleeding.

Please note that we cannot treat varicose or bulging veins.

Can spider veins reappear after treatment?

While laser spider vein removal is effective in eliminating existing spider veins, new veins can develop over time due to genetics, lifestyle, or other health factors. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following post-treatment care instructions can help minimize the chances of new spider veins appearing.

Is laser spider vein removal safe?

Laser spider vein removal is a safe and commonly performed procedure when conducted by a certified professional. It uses targeted laser energy to collapse spider veins without damaging the surrounding skin. Side effects are typically minimal and may include temporary redness or swelling at the treatment site.
