Laser technology offers a very effective means of treating spider veins and some larger veins. The laser beam can deliver energy to a large area with each pulse, so laser spider vein removal takes just a few minutes to treat each discolored vein. YAG spider vein treatment can eliminate damaged veins and capillaries.
During laser spider vein removal, the laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. The laser light is absorbed by the red veins and causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. Laser spider vein removal treatments are most effective for small and medium size spider veins.
The vein laser treatment is made more comfortable by the use of a dynamic cooling device, which comes in contact with the skin over the blood vessels or spider vein simultaneously with the pulse of the laser. This protects the skin from injury, as well as reduces discomfort.
