At OC SURGICAL & LASER, we perform laser therapy for the safe, effective treatment of unsightly spider veins on the face and legs. Facial spider veins are often associated with hormone therapy, birth control, rosacea, sun exposure, heredity and age. On the legs, spider veins may appear red, blue or purple and they can grow to very large sizes. We use the latest in laser technology, the Long Pulse YAG laser, which is safe and effective on all skin types and for spider veins as large as 4mm in size.
Prior to your laser vein treatment, you will need to undergo a thorough examination to determine if there are any underlying venous conditions which may require surgery or other treatment. Discomfort is generally minimal; most patients describe the sensation as similar to that of a warm rubber band being snapped against the skin. If necessary, a topical anesthetic cream can be used. During treatment the laser light is absorbed by the veins, sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. Treatment generally takes thirty to forty-five minutes for leg veins and fifteen to thirty minutes for facial veins. Spider veins on the legs may require two to three treatments spaced two months apart. Veins that are larger than 4mm in size may be better treated with sclerotherapy.
