Laser Spider Vein Removal Treatment Toronto

Spider veins are thin superficial capillaries most commonly seen on the legs and face. They can appear as red or purple in colour and as strands or clusters.

These dilated capillaries are often provoked by sun exposure, pressure, hormonal changes and heredity, to name some common influences. For instance, many women tend to develop leg veins after pregnancy due to increased pressure and hormonal changes or those with rosacea tend to have a weak capillary network under the skin which is often genetic. Some individuals develop a red flushed complexion due to over use or abuse of harsh skin care products while others develop red broken capillaries around the nose due to aggressive extraction. Although the exact cause is often unknown, these spider veins can be effectively treated with the appropriate techonology.

At Bellair Laser Clinic, we use a long pulsed Nd-Yag and sclerotherapy for the treatment of Spider/Facial Veins.

The Coolglide Laser For Spider Vein Removal

The CoolGlide laser targets only the hemoglobin in the vessel while protecting the surrounding skin by means of a unique integrated contact cooling hand piece. The targeted spider vein is thermally coagulated causing it to collapse and forcing your body to absorb and repair the area. Spider veins on the face and neck are vessels which are no longer useful to the skin or the body.

At Bellair Laser Clinic treatments are performed by qualified nurses or doctors, ensuring safety and proper medical attention.

Before beginning any treatment at Bellair Laser Clinic, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary consultation. At this time we will analyze the area and give you realistic expectations, as well as what to expect pre and post treatment. We will work with you to help you achieve your ideal skin appearance.

Spider Vein Removal FAQs

How Does Laser Vein Removal Work?
Laser light attracts the hemoglobin in the dilated vessel. The end result is coagulation of the superficial vessel.
What Will The Veins Look Like Post Treatment?
Post treatment, the spider veins often disappear immediately. Some vessels may appear darker in appearance. This is normal. It may take 2-6 weeks for your bodys healing response to begin. In turn, it may take 4-8 weeks for your body to absorb and eliminate the dilated vessel.
Is Laser Spider Vein Removal Permanent?
Yes, spider vein removal is permanent; however, those who are prone to spider veins may notice the appearance of new vessels due to genetics and lifestyle.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments required depends on how many vessels you have. Usually 3 sessions are required for best results.
