Spider veins, or telangiectasias, can be treated by using the Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser. By using a broad spectrum of high-intensity light, IPL increases the temperature of the targeted blood vessels which cause the veins to collapse. Once the veins have collapsed, they are then reabsorbed by the body over time.
Most patients say that IPL feels like a small pinprick or rubber band snapping the skin. We can typically perform an spider vein treatment in about 15 minutes. Depending on how severe your spider veins are and how well you respond to IPL will determine how many overall sessions you will need to take.
We recommend a consultation to create a treatment plan to achieve your goals.
