Spider veins are actually quite common and this problem affects over 25% of women and approximately 15% of men. Simple laser vein treatment is done on the outside of your skin. This uses heat generated by laser energy to seal off faulty blood vessels, diverting blood flow immediately to nearby healthy veins. It can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just under the skins surface.
You are likely to return your normal daily routine after this laser treatment. One week prior to your appointment discontinue medications or supplements that may thin your blood. This will help minimize bruising and improve the success of your treatment.
