Laser Spider Vein Removal

Millions of people are affected by spider veins. These veins show up on the body as red, bluish, or purple veins that can sometimes have a dramatic effect on your appearance.

Spider veins are often caused by the following factors: pregnancy, obesity, age, genetics, changes in hormones, and standing for prolonged periods of time. All these factors affect the ability of the veins to circulate the blood in the proper manner. Blood that is not pumped correctly pools back into the vein, which is how spider and varicose veins occur.

At Rothesay Laser Clinic, we offer treatments for spider veins through a certified laser technician. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions below to find out more, and when you are ready, call us as (506) 847-8302 or email for a free consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Spider Veins

What are Spider Veins?
Expanded veins that are thin and jagged, existing close enough to the surface of the skin that they are visible, are called spider veins. Red or blue, one or two spider veins can appear in a single area, or they can multiply into a high number that extend across a large area. They typically appear on the legs and face, but can also appear on other parts of the body and are considered unsightly by many. However, unlike varicose veins, spider veins are not considered a serious threat to one's health, and are generally more of a cosmetic nuisance.

How does Laser Spider Vein removal work? 

This laser has a wavelength that targets hemoglobin or blood. Each vessel is traced with pulses of laser light. As the blood in the vessel absorbs the energy, heat is created and the vessel wall is destroyed. The vein will die and the body will clear away the tissue as it would clear away a bruise.

How long will it take for my spider veins to disappear when treated with laser? 

Each client's body will have its own time schedule for how quickly veins will be reabsorbed. This could range from days to weeks and possibly months. 

How many laser treatments will I need for spider veins? 

Clients often differ in what they want out of their treatment. Some want their veins completely gone; others may want them to just look better. While many clients may need only one treatment to accomplish their goal, others should expect 2 or more treatments for clearing. Treatments are usually 6 weeks to 6 months apart.

Will my treated veins come back? 

Once a vein is completely dead and reabsorbed, it should be gone. However, a person who has already made spider veins may have the tendency to make more in the future. Any newly developing veins can be quickly treated.

Are there any activity restrictions immediately after treatment of spider veins? 

You may continue with normal daily activities, however, you need to refrain from hot baths or exercise for 3 days.
