What are spider veins and varicose veins?
Spider veins are distended small superficial vessels which often appear in the shape of spider webs. They are most common on the legs, but they also appear on the face. Varicose veins are enlarged vessels which have widened as a result of weakness in the vein wall which stretches and bulges. The exact causes of these problems are not known, however, heredity and life style are factors. People who spend much time on their feet exert pressure on the legs, which may increase the incidence of unsightly leg veins.

How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments may vary, depending on severity and density of veins.
Are there side effects?
You may experience some short term side effects. This may include slight reddening of the skin or local swelling, which goes away within a few days. In rare instances there may be some blistering.
Are there restrictions on my activity after treatment?
You can return to work the same day and quickly resume regular activities. You should limit exposure to the sun, which is always a good idea.
