Laser Vein Removal in Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr, and Newtown Square
Millions of women and men are bothered by unsightly veins on their legs and face. Known as "spider veins," or telangiectasias, these small red, blue, or purple blood vessels occur most frequently on the face and thighs and are usually asymptomatic.
Laser vein removal is an easy, quick, and effective way to treat small spider veins. Using a focused beam of light, the laser heats up the affected blood vessel with a precise dosage of energy. The vein is destroyed without damaging the nearby skin tissue and reabsorbed by the body over a period of four to six weeks.
Laser therapy is highly effective for diminishing the appearance of small spider veins. For large veins, sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard treatment.
