How does Laser for Spider Veins work?
Laser for spider veins works by emitting a light beam of energy that targets the vein and will cause the vein to coagulate and collapse, thereby destroying the vein permanently*. The light energy is transferred into heat energy, which is delivered precisely and efficiently for superior outcomes and results. (* multiple treatments may be needed)
- Reduces and treats the appearance of skin veins.
Process & Treatment
Generally one to two sessions of the treatment area may be enough, however depending on the severity, more sessions may be needed.
Immediately. Some veins may disappear completely. Others may turn a greyish-hue as the body gets rid of the pigment over one to two weeks.

The process of Laser for Spider Veins is quick and easy, but to ensure your safety, we follow very specific guidelines and protocols.
At Captivating Aesthetics, the first step for any new patient is to book a consultation with our team experts to make sure you are an ideal candidate. During this consultation a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history will be taken. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears and concerns in regards to the actual treatment itself. Your full treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be discussed.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
Same day treatment is often possible and is usually discussed at the time of booking the consultation.
After booking our friendly team will send you a link to our patient portal, which allows you to complete the necessary forms in the comfort and safety of your own home. Once you arrive for your appointment, our front office team will get a set of baseline photos, and your treatment technician for the appointment will meet with you. They will ensure you understand the procedure and you can be treated safely.
At Captivating Aesthetics we use a Zimmer cooler which is a specialized device to keep the area chilled and ensure the laser treatment itself to be virtually pain free. It’s a quick and comfortable procedure with no downtime.
After the treatment you are free to resume your normal activities however your technician may go over any post care guidelines specific to you. The use of sunscreen is vital to minimize post treatment complications. This will all be discussed during your consultation.
Mineral makeup can be applied immediately after.
