With the right treatment, it is easy to get rid of unsightly spider or varicose veins. The difficulty lies in finding the right treatment for your individual situation. To help you with your quest to find the right treatment for your varicose or spider veins, we will take a closer look at laser vein treatment, a popular treatment option recommended by many vein doctors.  

What is Laser Treatment for Spider and Varicose Veins

Laser treatment for spider and varicose veins relies upon the use of a beam of light that is highly focused. This highly focused beam of light can be heated up to extreme temperatures. Once the beam of light is heated up, it can be used by a vein doctor to damage the spider or varicose veins.

Damaging the problematic veins causes them to close up. With the veins closed up, it can no longer access its source of blood. Without access to the blood source, the vein will have time to heal. Once the spider or varicose vein has healed, any visible signs, such as painful or bulging veins, disappear completely.

There are two types of laser treatment options for people with spider and varicose veins: simple laser treatment and endovenous laser treatment or EVLT. Both options are similar. The only difference is EVLT is often used to treat larger varicose veins while simple laser treatment is used for spider veins and smaller varicose veins.

 Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?

It is difficult to provide an answer to whether or not laser treatment for spider and varicose veins works because every situation is different. Every patient will react differently to treatment. However, for the most part, laser treatment is extremely effective. In fact, a recent study conducted by researchers showed just how effective the treatment is for patients with spider and varicose veins.

The findings of a recent study on laser treatment for varicose and spider veins were published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. The study concluded that laser treatment has a 94% success rate. That means for every 100 patients only 6 may not see results from laser therapy for spider or varicose veins.
