Laser and pulsed light treatments are being used as an alternative to, or to complement, sclerotherapy for small veins or spider veins. They all work on the same basic principle: light energy is delivered through a small laser hand piece to a targeted vein, in a series of brief pulses. The light energy is absorbed by the lining of the blood vessels and the blood within the blood vessels. The heat generated causes a coagulation (clotting) of the blood, which is subsequently absorbed by the body.
The advanced laser treatments allow the delivery of a precise dosage of energy to each blood vessel. Discomfort is minimal and cooling devices are used to further reduce any pain the patient may experience. Several treatments are usually needed for optimal results.
