Spider Veins – Facial
Spider veins frequently appear on the face or legs. Facial spider veins, red spots, pinkness, “port wine stains,” or hemangiom as can be treated with lasers.
Most facial spider veins will improve with laser treatments, which are performed using a precise laser beam measuring1mm or smaller. Since the laser beam is so well-designed and precise, it avoids the surrounding normal skin. No anesthesia is necessary for treatment with this advanced laser. Patients frequently see an immediate improvement in spider vessels after just one visit. After treatment there is no bruising or swelling, just mild pinkness which clears up within a few hours. You can resume all of your regular activities as soon as the treatment is completed.
Spider Veins – Legs

After Asclera® treatment it is not necessary to have your legs wrapped. The following day you can resume all of your regular activities. Some patients respond best to a combination of lasers and Asclera®.
