As the medical aesthetics industry continues to grow, businesses are incorporating skin care specialists to provide laser treatments for spider veins and other skin conditions.

How Do Lasers Treat Spider Veins?

Commonly found on the face and legs, spider veins are caused by the expansion of a small group of blood vessels near the skin’s surface. Spider veins look like a sunburst or web pattern that looks red, blue or purple. When spider veins occur on the face, they are called telangiectasias and occur due to chronic sun exposure or extreme temperatures.

There are several machines on the market designed for spider vein removal. Longer wavelength lasers are used for larger veins while shorter wavelength lasers are used for more superficial veins. Regardless of the machine used, the laser spider vein treatment process is quite simple:

  • The laser is applied to the skin over the spider veins.
  • The light energy is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood.
  • The blood in the spider veins is vaporized.
  • The vein collapses and is absorbed by the body.

A laser treatment for spider veins is beneficial for veins that are too small to be treated with Sclerotherapy. In order to zap spider veins away, the vein must be smaller than 3-mm in diameter for the procedure to be effective. Laser therapy is an excellent option for treating delicate areas such as the face or people allergic to the injection solution.

During didactic education, you’ll learn everything you need to know about how to treat spider veins, including the types of veins that can be treated with lasers. Your instructor will also discuss things like the consultation process, patient care, contraindications as well as potential side effects and how to treat them.
