Spider Vein Ablation with Laser

Procedure: YAG Laser Ablation of Spider Veins

Overview

This patient suffered from years of spider veins on the shins (left) and cheeks of the face (right). This is a quick office procedure where the targeted area is gently cooled for a few seconds and then a laser pulse is directed at the unsightly vessel. The pulse of heat directed at the vessel causes the vessel to shut down and it is no longer visible. These are very superficial vessels and so there is no problem associated with closing these ugly veins.

Left shows before the shin was treated. The right is after one laser pulse. Full treatment can sometimes take multiple treatments.
