Spider veins are dilated veins (capillaries) close to the surface of the skin, most often on the face or legs. They manifest as visible red, purple, or blue veins, in one of three typical patterns, with a dark center point: spider-shaped, linear, or branched (like a tree).
Laser vein treatment is done on the outside of your skin. It can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just under the skin’s surface. Usually, more than one laser session is needed. They are scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks.
