Laser spider vein treatments are most effective for small and medium size spider veins. . Treatments are associated with mild discomfort, not unlike a small rubber band snapping against skin. Treatments do not require sedatives, pain medications, or injections of local anesthetic. Immediately following treatment, spider veins will be darker and more visible. Over two to six weeks, your spider veins usually fade. After each treatment, you will see a significant improvement in the appearance of face spider veins and leg spider veins. An average of three treatments will be required.
