Laser Vein Treatment for Spider Veins in Philadelphia & Havertown
Time, hormones, genetics, and more can cause fine, dark-colored lines to appear on the face or legs. Generally referred to as “spider veins”, or telangiectasia, these unsightly dilated blood vessels are not necessary for proper circulation. The same goes for hemangiomas, or “cherry-red spots”. So they are safely addressed with laser treatment for spider veins in Philadelphia & Havertown, Main Line, PA, and surrounding area’s at Mind Your Skin.
Using the same technology that for example powers laser skin resurfacing, rejuvenation, and hair reduction, laser vein treatment delivers heat energy into the unwanted vessels selectively. Subsequently, they collapse and dissolve away while leaving the surroundings alone. The result is clearer skin with less visible redness. This is not a solution for varicose veins, which are typically larger and may bulge out.

What it feels like.
Most spider veins, “broken capillaries” and hemangiomas respond to a few laser pulses. These generally feel like a rubber band slap. There is no lingering discomfort. Aftercare consists of Cicalfate or Aquaphor. There is no need for Bandaids or antibiotics.
