With the laser spider vein solution, the doctor will take a device that looks like a large pen with a wire attached and place the tip directly on the skin over the vein. He will then activate the laser several times along the length of the vein. You will hear a clicking sound as the laser fires and will feel a hot sensation. The laser effectively closes the vein so that blood can no longer flow through it. This decreases or completely gets rid of those purple/red veins.
Most patients describe laser spider vein treatment as a “hot” sensation. Others describe the spider vein removal process feeling like “tiny pinches.” Either way, the feeling is fleeting, lasting less than a second. Once the spider vein removal is complete, the discomfort disappears. We will provide you with an ice pack to minimize discomfort at your request.
Our spider vein laser is a Dornier D940 Diode. This laser has a unique wavelength that is specially designed to treat superficial veins. Without special safety precautions, any laser can be dangerous. However, with our laser spider vein solutions we ensure safety by following certain safety precautions:
- Providing safety glasses for everyone in the room including you, the patient
- Using the lowest effective settings possible
Dr. Seaver will perform the procedure. At the very low energy settings we use to treat spider veins, the danger is absolutely minimized.
