Spider veins are tiny visible vessels just under the skin's surface. Spider veins are commonly found on the face and legs. During the treatment, the laser is placed on the skin over the spider veins. The laser energy passes through the top layer of skin to the targeted blood vessel, causing it to slowly heat up and seal itself. Some mild discomfort is normal, similar to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin. Treatments can last for a few minutes to a half an hour. Multiple treatments may be necessary depending on the size and depth of the veins, but in some cases only one treatment is necessary. Post treatment there may be some redness that can last up to an hour, and clients are advised to wear compression hose for several days post treatment.
