Spider Veins are mostly found on the back of the thigh and back of the lower leg. Even though spider veins are small, they are unsightly and most women find them embarrassing.
Before laser technology entered the market, spider veins were treated by doctors with medicated saline solutions.
Now spider veins can be effectively treated with Nd:YAG laser. The process is fast and simple. There may be a mild tingling and burning sensation which is minimized by the application of topical anesthetic and ice packs or chilled air.
To achieve smooth, clear and healthy looking skin, 4 to 6 sessions are usually needed. The best time to treat spider veins is fall and winter in order to avoid sun exposure.
