Laser Spider Vein Removal
Benefits/How It Works
Laser technology has revolutionized cosmetic dermatology and the way we can treat various skin imperfections. We are able to use lasers for vein treatment at our Victoria, British Columbia practice. Our laser vein treatments target the veins only, creating a more attractive skin appearance without substantial discomfort or damage to the surrounding skin.

How It Works:
With laser vein treatment, unwanted blood vessels on the face, around the eyes, on the legs, and on the body can be treated effectively. Because we have many different laser systems, we can treat a wide range of vessels, including small red and larger bluish veins. Non-bruising technology minimizes downtime and can achieve long-lasting results.
With the HELP-G laser, pulsed light is applied to the skin surface and is selectively absorbed by the blood vessels. The result is vessels that are sealed rather than ruptured. The Cool-Tip technology allows for specific treatment of the targeted blood vessels, while keeping the surface skin comfortable. For larger, bluish veins, one of our long-pulsed Nd:YAG lasers is used.
Individuals who have developed unsightly veins on the face or legs or have multiple red spots on the body.
How It Feels:
Ranges from a small pricking sensation for small red vessels to a snapping feeling for larger bluish veins.
Small vessels may disappear immediately. There is a transient flush and in some cases, swelling, after the treatment. May take minutes to days to settle depending on size and location of areas treated.
Seconds to minutes depending on size of area treated.
The majority of treated vessels will fade or disappear following one to two treatments. Leg veins may take several treatments depending on extent and expectations.
