Spider veins, along with varicose veins, affect both men and women at any age. However, women who are of childbearing age and older generally develop spider veins more frequently, especially those who have a family history of the condition.

This non-invasive treatment creates visible results that many will see immediately, with full improvement after several weeks as the veins slowly fade away. In the case of multiple veins or areas in need of treatments, multiple sessions spread over a period of one to two-month intervals may be necessary.

What are unsightly veins?

These benign vascular lesions include enlarged blood vessels and capillaries that appear on the surface of the skin as splotches, dots, bulges and spider shapes. They can show up in a variety of colors ranging from red to purple to brown. Weakness in the walls and valves of the veins cause blood to stagnate rather than to be properly circulated. Some vascular lesions are so tiny that they are not visible under normal conditions. Others, such as varicose leg veins can be quite prominent.

How does the Nd: YAG laser treat lesions and leg veins?

The light energy emitted by the Nd: YAG penetrates the skin, penetrating the blood vessel or spider vein. The energy generates heat, coagulating the blood within the vein, causing it to collapse, sealing it closed. The blood is rerouted to deeper blood vessels, and the damaged vein slowly disappears as the body sheds the cells naturally. The best part of the Nd: YAG laser is the surrounding skin and vessels are protected by the custom cooling feature between each pulse of the laser.

Am I a candidate for Nd: YAG Treatment?

As with any plastic surgery treatment, even non-invasive ones, it’s important to understand that there are certain qualifications one must have to be an ideal candidate for treatment. This is to ensure the safety and efficacy of the treatment. While spider veins are generally a cosmetic concern and don’t have physical symptoms, it’s still important to have a consultation to evaluate your candidacy.

What is the recovery time with the Nd: YAG laser treatment?

When treating enlarged veins with the Nd:Yag laser, patients will experience mild swelling and possibly some bruising that will last about 2 weeks. If the Nd:Yag is used for non-ablative skin rejuvenation, then the downtime is very minimal.

Can broken capillaries and spider veins around the nose be treated?

Yes. Laser technology in its current state is very effective at treating these kind of conditions. It is effective, quick and relatively less painful than the injections used in the past. Patient do have to consider spider veins versus varicose veins.


Extremely large varicose veins are usually treated with surgical procedures and then followed up with lasers.
