For your laser vein treatment, you should expect the process to take anywhere from 15 minutes to a half an hour. During it, short pulses of laser energy are used to precisely target the spider or varicose veins. The light energy is absorbed by the blood in the vein, causing the vein’s temperature to rise. When this happens, the vein becomes smaller. After a time, it vanishes completely as a result of the body’s natural processes.
Typically, in the treatment of spider veins, the process is as follows: First, the axial varicosities are treated, followed by the branched varicosities.
No injury or damage is caused to the tissues surrounding the veins during this treatment, and there are no incisions or injections. This makes laser vein removal a safer and more comfo
