Laser spider vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. Laser therapy has been used in the medicine for more than 30 years. Advances in technology have helped developed many different lasers. The laser uses a focused beam of light. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused and does no damage the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
With lasers treatment there might be some swelling that will disappear within a few days, you might experience some discolored skin in the areas that have been treated, but this fades in 10-14 days.
