When we perform spider and varicose vein laser treatment in Vancouver, we’re frequently asked, “If you get rid of the vein, what happens then? Where does it go? Will it affect my circulation?”
Well, the vein was not working properly in the first place. Once the valves are unable to push the blood through it will actually cause a bit of a traffic jam. This puts pressure on the surrounding veins and they too can be damaged. Laser treatments prevent the condition from getting worse. The laser cauterizes, or closes, the vein with pulses of light energy so blood can no longer pool in it. The body reabsorbs the existing blood in the vein and blood flow is simply redirected to veins that run a little deeper in the skin.
It’s one of our favorite treatments to do at Laser because you can see the spider and varicose veins disappear right before your eyes. The number of treatments needed depends on how large the vein is and, of course, your overall health. On average, we suggest approximately three sessions at four to 10 week intervals. Home care is the key to getting the most out of your treatments.
Laser treatment for veins is ideal because it’s been around for a long, long time, is low risk, inexpensive and, most importantly, it works. Are you ready to regain your confidence and flaunt your healthy skin?

Be beautiful. Feel good about it
