Laser Vein TreatmentSpider veins and varicose veins are a common problem that develops on the legs and sometimes the face. Spider veins are the sprawling network of small red or purple veins that are visible through the skin. Varicose veins often develop on the legs and ankles and are the larger blood vessels that are both visible and raised under the skin. If you are bothered by the appearance of spider or varicose veins, laser vein treatment is available.

Laser vein treatment involves sending bursts of laser energy through the skin to target the offending veins. The treatment usually lasts 15 to 20 minutes depending on the size of the area. The laser destroys the vein without harming the skin. It may take multiple sessions to achieve the final results. Contact a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Michelle Place to determine what type of vein treatments are best for you.
