We are having great success with spider vein removal with our Gentlase laser machine. A noninvasive procedure, done from the outside of the leg. The laser machine works by the laser light beam penetrating through the skin and is attracted to the dark fluid in the vein. The laser is not attracted to light colors, only dark colors. Therefore the skin is not damaged but the fluid in the vein is dissipated and the veins collapse and becomes flat. After the procedure the vein turn dark purple, then your body’s macrophages (white blood cells) come and eat up the debrie that is left. This takes 8-12 weeks for them to heal and the discoloration to fade and go away. Very small spider veins usually require 1 treatment. The bigger veins require several treatments, 8-12 weeks apart. We can treat spider veins up to 2 mm wide.
