What are spider veins? Spider veins (telangiectasias) are thin, wavy, reddish-purple veins on the face and legs, often clustered on the thigh or below the knee. Spider veins affect as many as 80% of all women and a large percentage of men as well. Although spider veins are not usually a medical problem, they may make you self-conscience about your appearance. 

Varicose veins are normally wider and may be raised with a bluish color. These veins may be related to a more serious vascular problem and should be evaluated by your doctor. Please call our Mission Valley clinic for laser vein removal today!

What type of laser is used to treat spider veins?

The most common laser used to treat spider veins is the Nd: YAG laser system. It is a hand-held device and also has a cooling tip to minimize discomfort during laser vein removal.

Is laser therapy painful?

A local anesthetic is used to numb the area. During treatment, however, you may feel a slight tingling sensation as the laser fires. Most current day lasers have a cooling system that prevents the tip of the laser from getting too hot and resulting in burns or damage to the area.
