Laser Treatment for Leg/Spider Veins

In addition to hair removal, our Cynosure Apogee Elite Laser also has the capability to treat superficial spider veins on the legs. We often combine Sclerotherapy with our 1064-nm Nd:YAG, which targets blood, to treat any veins that sclerotherapy did not correct.

Spider veins are dilated or stretched blood vessels that appear on the legs, not “broken” blood vessels, as is commonly believed. Their precise cause is unknown, but it is thought that heredity, excessive standing, weight gain, hormonal changes and pregnancy may be some of the causes.

Currently, the long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser is regarded as being as effective as sclerotherapy for the treatment of leg veins, and is the treatment of choice in patients who do not respond to sclerotherapy or who are “needle phobic.”
