Spider veins are not a serious health condition, but they can be unsightly and sometimes cause discomfort. Laser spider vein therapy at Skin Care Doctors can soften their appearance so your skin regains a healthy, even tone.
What Is Laser Spider Vein Therapy?
Laser spider vein therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser technology to treat spider veins. The procedure works by directing intense bursts of light onto the affected area, which causes the blood vessels to coagulate and eventually collapse. The laser targets the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, heating them and causing them to break down. The body then naturally absorbs the destroyed veins and redirects the blood flow to healthier veins in the area. The laser energy is delivered through a handheld device placed directly on the skin, targeting the spider veins without damaging the surrounding tissue.
