Laser Therapy for Spider Veins

Laser therapy has been used to eliminate spider veins for decades! Modern medical advances have provided different types of lasers with which to treat spider veins, allowing you to have multiple treatment options for your personalized treatment needs.

In addition, laser treatment is fast, non-invasive, and efficient! It requires no time-consuming hospital stays. Through our vascular practice in New Jersey, you can be assured of finding the most convenient and current laser technologies at our varicose vein treatment centers.

SpiderVeins.jpgHow Does It Work?
Laser treatment works by directing a focused beam of light through the skin onto the vein. The wavelength of that light is targeted to the pigment of the blood. The laser light heats up and coagulates the blood inside the ultra-small vein, causing the vein to collapse and seal itself. Laser technology has evolved to allow experienced vein and vascular doctors the ability to target only very specific veins while ensuring not to damage surrounding tissue. The entire vein treatment process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks for the laser-treated vein to be reabsorbed by the body and disappear.

Laser therapy for spider veins takes place in our offices and usually takes just 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size and complexity of your treatment areas. Anesthesia is not needed, but our vein doctors can make your treatments more tolerable by applying topical anesthetic cream 20 minutes before your procedure.

The most common lasers used to treat spider veins are hand-held, intricate instruments, almost space-age in design. They have cooling tips to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
