Laser Vein Removal Toronto
Spider veins or Telangiectasias (leg veins and facial veins) affect millions of people all over the world. These small dilated blood vessels are often red or purple in colour and can present themselves as strands or clusters. They can develop just about anywhere on the body but are most common around the nose, cheeks, chin and legs.
Spider veins are extremely common, effecting both men and women and caused by weakened or damaged valves in the veins, they can also be caused by hormone changes, exposure to the sun, and injuries.
So what's the good news? At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we offer multiple treatment options including Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Laser, and Sclerotherapy to effectively remove unwanted spider veins on the legs and face*. Based on your individual concerns our team of specialist will customize the ideal treatment plan based on your skin type and condition*.
Flushing, spider veins, thread veins and all forms of facial redness and rosacea can be successfully treated using our Intense Pulsed Light MaxG technology. Clinical studies have proven that the device achieves superior efficacy than other laser treatments and with significantly less downtime*.
For deep vein removal, the Palomar Lux1064+™ Nd:YAG Laser Hand-piece delivers concentrated light at a 1064nm wavelength, which is ideal for targeting a variety of deep leg veins*. The light pulses heat the blood within the veins. The heat of the blood affects the vessel lining and blood flow, which causes the vein to constrict and ultimately fade from view. Skin is unaffected by the heat and also protected by the Advanced Contact Cooling™ system*.
The Palomar Lux1064+™ Laser is the preferred method to remove spider veins on the legs because it is able to remove veins as large as 4 mm in diameter and penetrate deeper beneath the skin surface where the communicating veins reside. This is proven to diminish spider veins permanently*.
Sclerotherapy is an alternate treatment option that uses a very fine needle to inject a solution directly into the affected vein. The solution irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and collapse and ultimate fade from view. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven technique that has been used since the 1930s.
What factors increase my risk of spider veins?
There are various factors that can make you more susceptible to developing spider veins. These include: family medical history and heredity, aging, hormonal changes, weight gain, pregnancy, lack of movement, crossing the legs or standing for extended periods, sun exposure and trauma or impact.

Within a few hours following the laser spider vein removal procedure the bulging appearance of spider veins will disappear. The surrounding skin may turn pink or become slightly swollen for up to 24 hours. The treated vessels may eventually disappear in 4 to 6 weeks.
