Undesirable, visible veins (also called spider veins or brush varices) on the legs are visible small red or blue lines on the legs. They are actually small superficial varicose veins (micro-varices). We effectively treat superficial and ruptured leg veins with a diameter of 0.1 to 4.0mm using the M22 Nd: YAG laser and/or IPL.
Your body needs some time to clear the destroyed veins.The results become visible after about 6 months. The treated spider veins will stay permanently gone. The cause of the appearance of these veins cannot always be eliminated, so new spider veins may develop in the future, making a repeat of the treatment desirable.”
Number of treatments required
The number of treatments required cannot be predicted in advance. On average, about 3 to 6 treatments are needed. Each treatment gives improvement. Between each treatment there is a period of 6 to 8 weeks.

Laser treatment on spider veins is most effective and safe on light skin. Therefore, it is important not to expose the legs to the sun or tanning bed for at least 6 weeks prior to treatment, also do not use self-tanning products. We recommend protecting the area with SPF 30-50 at all times during the summer months, in addition we recommend covering the area with a towel or garment. If you suffer greatly from varicose veins or any other underlying problem of the blood vessels, it is important to consult your doctor or vascular surgeon first. Further examination and/or a different method of treatment may be necessary.
The skin therapist sets the laser to your skin type and the characteristics of the spider veins. She then places the laser head just above the visible leg vessel and gives a pulse, she will treat as many vessels as possible. The laser light penetrates the skin and searches for the 'oxyhaemoglobin' (this gives blood its red colour) of the blood. This heats the blood vessels, causing the vessel wall to contract. The body then cleans up the remainder. A laser treatment of superficial spider veins can be sensitive but is generally tolerable. Afterwards we cool the treated area with cold packs.
The skin may feel warm afterwards and slight swelling may occur. This is a normal and desired effect and will quickly diminish. Up to 2 weeks after the treatment small scabs may be visible under the skin, this is coagulated blood. Limit and increased blood flow in your legs after the treatment. It is important not to undo the coagulation in the treated blood vessels. For example, avoid the sauna, heated baths and active sports such as running for at least 7 days after the treatment, and do not use alcohol for up to 48 hours after the treatment. If you have an extensive form of superficial spider veins, we recommend wearing therapeutically elastic stockings. These not only relieve complaints, but also prevent the formation of new spider veins.
