Laser For Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins (also known as thread veins, telengiectasia or broken
veins) are the small yet unsightly clusters of pink and purple
thread like veins that lie near the surface of the skin. They are
commonly found in the leg but they can also appear in the face and
other parts of the body. Click thumbnails below to see enlarge view
of examples of Spider Veins.
Cherylas diode laser 940 nm in a repetitive pulse with an optical
fiber 600 µm ending with a hand piece (probe) were used to treat
the spider veins in a (non contact) technique of (2mm) away from
the skin. The tip of optical fiber was held perpendicular to the
skin and moved in a low speed at a rate of (1cm/min).
Laser therapy can be considered a first line approach for
superficial, fine caliber spider vein and laser therapy is an
excellent option for patients who are fearful of needles of
1. Complete: pulsed laser can penetrate deep into the skin vascular
tissue, stimulate the laser beam is absorbed by hemoglobin, let
hemoglobin solidify, make vascular tissue closed, completely
achieve perfect spider vein removal.
2. No scars: 940nm laser can intelligently identify skin lesions,
there isn’t any impact on the normal skin tissue during the whole
treatment, its non-invasive physical therapy, there will be no cut
on the skin, combines with proper post-long care , will almost no
3. Fast and easy: only twenty minutes can finish one treatment,
4. Immediate result: After the 940nm laser treatment, large blood
vessels will become smaller lighter,
smaller vessels will disappear directly, the treatment effect is
- Vascualr lesions
- Proliferative lesion
- Age spots and sun spots
- Spider veins
- Linear angitelectasis
- Cherry angiomas
How effective is the treatment?
Diode Laser Therapy has successfully eliminated spider veins for
thousands of patients worldwide. For clusters veins, the therapy
typically requires numerous treatments. The course of treatment
often extends over a period of months, during which time patients
will realize a gradual disappearance of spider veins and the minor
temporary discoloration that sometimes accompanies the laser
therapy. In cases of smaller veins, the results are sometimes
How does Diode Laser Therapy work?
Diode Laser Therapy, typically sends a small spot of laser light
through the skin, where it absorbed by the blood within the vein.
The heat coagulates or clots the blood, destroying the function of
the vein. In time, the vein is absorbed by the body and fades from
Is the procedure painful?
Patients often describe each pulse of laser light as “a slight
sting” or “pinch” much like the snap of a rubber band. Topical
anesthetics are available, but most patients do not require them.
