How Laser Vein Treatment works For Spider Veins
Laser therapy stands out as the most effective method for tackling spider veins. This treatment directs specific light wavelengths at the pigment in the blood vessels with precision.
The absorbed energy prompts the closure of these targeted blood vessels. Consequently, blood redirects through healthier veins, and the body actively breaks down spider veins, causing a gradual fading from the skin’s surface.
While multiple sessions may be required, rest assured that laser therapy is a robust and assertive solution for eliminating visible veins.
