Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people. Spider veins (or telangiectasias) are red, bluish or purple veins than can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity.
Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for spider veins of the face and other areas.
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.
Results are seen within three to four weeks. Typically, one to two treatments are recommended.
