Benefits of Laser Vein Treatment
- Effective: Laser vein therapy can significantly reduce the appearance of spider veins and overall complexion, while fostering improved circulation.
- Non-Invasive: Unlike surgical procedures, laser vein treatment is non-invasive, meaning it does not require incisions, anesthesia, or extensive downtime. Patients can resume their regular activities immediately after treatment.
- Comfortable: Most patients report minimal discomfort during laser vein treatment. The sensation is often described as a mild stinging or snapping feeling.
- Convenient: Laser light therapy sessions are typically short and convenient, allowing patients to fit treatments into their busy schedules.

Understanding Spider Veins and Laser Vein Treatment
Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels that appear close to the skin’s surface, usually on the legs or face. They often resemble a spider web or the branches of a tree, hence the name.
While spider veins are typically harmless, they can cause self-consciousness and discomfort for many individuals, including burning, itching, and cramping.
At Luna Dermatology, we offer laser vein treatments as a safe and effective solution to address spider veins. During the procedure, we use focused light energy to target the pigment in the blood vessels of concern, causing them to fade and eventually disappear.
This non-invasive procedure is highly precise, minimizing damage to the surrounding skin and naturally rerouting blood flow to healthy vessels, which may have the added benefit of improving circulation.
What to Know Before Your Laser Vein Treatment
Prior to undergoing laser vein treatment it’s important to schedule a consultation with our team. During this consultation, Dr. Bair will assess your specific condition, medical history, and goals to determine if laser therapy is the right option for you. In addition, to ensure the best results and minimize potential risks, follow these general guidelines before your laser vein treatment:
Avoid Sun Exposure: Sunburn and tan can impact the effectiveness of the laser and increase the risk of complications.
Avoid Certain Medications: Some medications, such as blood thinners, can increase the risk of complications during the procedure. Please inform us of any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
Avoid Applying Lotions or Creams: Refrain from applying any lotions, creams, or oils to the treatment area on the day of your appointment.
Shave the Treatment Area: If you’re receiving laser vein treatment on a hairy area, it’s advisable to shave the area beforehand to improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
After Your Spider Vein Treatment
Over time, you should notice a significant reduction in the visible spider veins, leading to clearer and smoother skin. That said, while laser vein treatment can provide long-lasting results, it does not prevent the development of new spider veins in the future, and you may need occasional maintenance treatments.
Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, or bruising around the treated area, although these are generally mild and resolve within a few days or weeks. Regardless, you can typically resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure, although depending on your situation we may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise or prolonged sun exposure for a few days.
Please note that depending on the severity of your spider veins, you may require multiple laser skincare treatment sessions to achieve the desired results. These sessions are generally spaced several weeks apart to allow your body to heal between treatments.
