Laser Vein Removal FAQs

The laser emits a specialized light that passes through the skin and is absorbed by the vein. The laser causes the vein to break up and be absorbed by the body. There are several different lasers available that work extremely well at treating unwanted veins, including pulsed dye, long pulsed, variable-pulsed Nd-YAG and Alexandrite.

The majority of the treated veins will disappear within one to three treatments which are administered in three to four week intervals. Additional treatments may be necessary to achieve the maximum long-term effects. New veins may appear with time and require additional treatments.

Laser therapy is safe and has few possible complications. Common side effects include bruising, redness and discomfort around the treated area. These effects are not dangerous and resolve over time. Limiting sun exposure will greatly minimize the risk of complications.

There is no downtime after Laser Vein Removal, but you should not exercise for a couple days following the procedure.

The benefits of Laser Vein Removal over other therapies are that there is no downtime, and it is faster than other therapies.

After treatment for spider veins, a sunburned sensation may occur, and some redness may appear around the treated area. This will disappear in a few days. A cold compress may be applied to the treated area.

Clients with spider veins on their legs or face are candidates for Laser Vein Removal. Both light and dark-skinned clients can safely and effectively benefit from Laser Vein Removal treatment for spider veins.

Clients taking high doses of blood-thinners are generally not candidates for Laser Vein Removal. Also, clients with dark suntans, bleeding disorders or those currently taking photosensitizing medications may also want to avoid Laser Vein Removal.

Most Laser Vein Removal clients report little discomfort and describe it as either as a mild burning sensation or similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin.

An alternative to Laser Vein Removal is sclerotherapy, which is a solution injected into a targeted area of skin to reduce spider veins. There are anywhere from five to forty injections per treatment for spider veins.

The number of treatments necessary to resolve your veins depends on the size of the vein and your body’s ability to heal. Future treatments may be necessary to remove new vein growth.

Avoid sun tanning or tanning products for four weeks prior to treatment for spider veins. Discontinue Accutane® and Retin-A® for six weeks prior to treatment for spider veins. Aspirin and other blood thinners should also be avoided for at least three days before treatment for spider veins. Shave the area before treatment.

If necessary, over-the-counter pain medication may be taken. Cool compresses may be helpful in reducing pain, redness and swelling. Avoid massaging the treated area, and keep it elevated the day after treatment for spider veins if possible. Avoid the sun for at least two weeks after treatment for spider veins.
