Laser treatment is primarily used in the treatment of the smallest spider veins or broken capillaries in your leg or face.
Lasers emit a specific wavelength of high-energy pulsed light, delivered in variable durations. After the energy passes through the skin, the light is absorbed by the red blood cells in the spider vein. The energy is then converted to heat, thereby injuring the vein wall. Within a few weeks, the spider vein seals and disappears from sight.
On the legs, the spider veins are usually treated by sclerotherapy and laser treatments complement the procedure.
