Leg vein removal with the Lumenis™ YAG laser is a non-invasive way to treat spider veins with no downtime.
Be comfortable once again wearing a bathing suit, shorts and skirts. Your spider veins will safely disappear without needles, surgery of anesthesia. Resume your daily routine immediately following your treatment.
It's estimated that over 60% of the population suffers from spider veins. Until recently, spider leg vein removal was often a long painful process that involved needles and other invasive procedures, sometimes even surgery. Now we have a new laser technology, which allows us to successfully treat spider veins, simply and non invasively. The Lumenis™ YAG laser has a built-in cooling device. This feature allows for skin cooling and added patient comfort. The procedure effectively eliminates unattractive spider veins. It helps them fade, slowly disappear and become fully absorbed by your body. No anesthesia or pain medication is required. The treatments are quick, convenient, safe and effective with little or no discomfort. The YAG Laser state-of-the-art equipment allows us to deliver precise and customized doses of energy to the targeted veins in a series of brief pulses. You'll get back to your normal activities immediately after your appointment.
