Laser therapy is a proven, non-invasive and safe treatment for the common red facial veins as well as the blue, red or purple leg veins. Elase can treat most veins through a combination or laser vein therapy and/or Sclerotherapy. The lasers work by emitting light through the skin that is absorbed by the blood in the vessels. The laser then causes the vein to break up and disappear. With laser vein therapy, there is no compression stocking or injection needed for treatment. A few treatments may be necessary depending on the vein. The body will take 8-12 weeks to absorb the blood vessel. Often times, the small spider veins are a result of a deeper feeder vein allowing for blood to branch off into tiny vessels. In this case, Sclerotherapy will be recommended to stop the feeder vein first, followed by laser vein therapy for the smaller, more superficial veins.
