Dr. Navarro explains if spider veins can be removed by laser treatments.
The treatment of spider veins by lasers have been tried for many years, and with very little success. A technique that we have been working lately and some people have worked in other countries is the combination of sclerotherapy. That’s the best method of treating spider veins with selected points of laser treatment on the spider veins, and that may offer certain advantages in very specific cases of spider veins.
The treatment of spider veins exclusively with laser, through the skin laser, doesn’t offer very good results.
