The Benefits of Laser Vein Removal

Benefits of laser vein removal

Any type of skin abnormality can make even the most confident person want to cover up. Dealing with spider veins is no different.
For many, laser vein removal provides a non-invasive, safe solution that helps people get their confidence back.

Laser vein removal targets the vein with a powerful laser that damages the vein, causing it to scar down, without damaging the surrounding skin.  Most patients require multiple treatments.

So what are the benefits of laser vein removal?


Unlike vein stripping, laser vein removal is non-invasive. This means you are able to return to work after your treatment with few lingering side effects. It’s generally not painful and does not take a lot of time.

Safe and effective

The procedure is safe with minimal side effects. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, discoloration, hyper or hypopigmentation, and very rarely infection or scarring. Before you agree to treatment, be sure the clinic has plenty of experience with laser vein removal as it reduces the risk of complications.


The best part about laser vein reduction is the confidence you will gain. Since spider veins tend to appear in highly visible places on the body, they can quickly become a source of insecurity.

If you have spider veins, imagine a day where you don’t worry about putting concealer on your face to cover up the purplish discoloration. When summertime arrives, you won’t worry about wearing shorts or that great skirt you found on sale.
