Cosmetic Treatments for Spider Veins
For more than fifteen years, the pulsed dye laser has safely and effectively treated vascular lesions, or spider veins. It is designed to deliver a gentle, while intense burst of laser light to the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood vessels specifically in the vascular region. These vessels are gently heated and coagulated. The body then reabsorbs the treated blood vessels during the natural healing process.
The laser has a unique ability to selectively target the blood vessels of a vascular lesion without adversely affecting the surrounding tissue. In fact, it’s so safe and effective that it has been successfully used for the treatment of infants as young as weeks old. The skin is further protected during treatment for spider veins by an integrated contact cooling that provides epidermal protection and patient comfort.

In addition, care should be taken in the first few days to avoid scrubbing or rinsing the area with abrasive skin cleansers.
