About Spider Vein Treatment
Our long pulsed Nd:YAG laser treats spider veins, broken vessels and cherry angiomas on the face and body. The Yag laser heats and damages blood vessels causing them to collapse. Treatments work best on smaller veins that are roughly the size of large ball point pen marks or smaller. Some vessels may require more than one treatment for optimum results.

Spider vein treatment FAQs
What causes spider veins?
Spider veins are the result of broken or weak blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. These blood vessels may appear blue, red, or purple and are often found on visible areas of the legs. Genetics play a major role in who will develop spider veins. Other external factors include pregnancy, hormone changes, and injury to the affected area.
What about over-the-counter creams?
Some drugstore products promise to reduce the appearance of spider veins, but they may not be effective and contain ingredients that irritate the skin. Instead, it is a good idea to consult with About Face & Body Medical Spa before spending money on such products. Our spider vein treatment safely treats the affected areas with very little downtime.
