Spider veins are small, thin blood vessels that lie close to the surface of the skin and appear red or blue. These small, enlarged blood vessels may appear as short, unconnected lines or may be connected in a spider web or cluster pattern. Spider veins can cover a large area of skin and are unattractive. Central Coast Laser Clinic uses a Medical Grade Laser that has a  focused beam of laser energy, which targets the pigment in the blood. Without disrupting the skin's natural surface the heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel causing it to collapse and seal. Over the next few weeks, the vessel will disappear and the body’s scavenging cells will remove the blood. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears. 

Certain medications may affect your laser treatment if they are photosensitive or effect skin integrity. If you are taking any medications it is best to advise your Skin and Laser Specialist so that we can ensure the best possible treatment results for you. 


Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a consultation?

Consultations are conducted with clients before the treatment to:
Assess if the vascular laser treatment is appropriate for you Explain the laser process Advise pre and post treatment care instructions Advise the cost of treatment

Is Laser Spider Vein Removal permanent?

Although treatments do not prevent development of new spider veins, the reduction of existing veins can dramatically improve the overall appearance of the affected area. Spider veins are recurrent, thus maintenance treatments are highly recommended..

How many treatments will I need?

For best results and depending on the size and number of spider veins, on average we recommend 1 to 3 treatments. Those with a tendency towards vascular problems will most likely require additional treatments. Your Skin and Laser Specialist will assess your individual progress throughout your treatment course, recommending the best time to return for your follow up treatment. If you are uncertain, please feel free to ask our team.

Are there any risks or side effects?

Immediately following a laser treatment, clients should experience either slightly reddened or goose bump like skin. It feels somewhat like a mild sunburn. This effect is very normal and will disappear shortly after. Damage to the skin is very rare and only in some few cases, clients may experience pigment change in the skin. If this occurs, the skin will typically return to normal over time.
