Laser technology has become the most popular treatment to get rid of spider veins
Laser technology has become the most popular treatment to get rid of spider veins. These lasers work best on small to medium sized veins, targeting the blood vessels in spider veins with a light beam. This closes the vessels, causing them to dissolve. Popular treatments for spider vein removal are IPL Photofacial and Laser Skin Rejuvenation since they are safe, effective, and involve little downtime. Fraxel® lasers and Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing are other laser vein options.
Sclerotherapy continues to be the most common treatment for spider vein removal, and it is best for larger veins that lasers might not be able to treat. It involves a fine needle that injects a hardening solution directly into the spider vein. The spider veins harden and collapse back into the body.
