Vein Removal Toronto
Spider veins affects millions of people all over the world. These dilated blood vessels are often red or purple in colour, and can present as strands, branches or clusters at the skin’s surface. They can develop just about anywhere on the body, but are most common on the nose, cheeks, chin and legs. Vein removal is one of the most common procedures at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic. With a team including cosmetic doctors and nurses, we offer laser vein removal in conjunction with other techniques to treat a wide variety of veins for men and women in the GTA.
Causes of Spider Veins
Spider veins have a variety of causes including weakened or damaged valves in the veins. They may also be caused by hormonal changes, skin sun damage, injuries, impaired blood circulation or even poor liver function. Genetics are also believed to play a role in their development, so if a close family member is prone to broken capillaries, then it is likely that you might as well. Spider veins can be quite visible on pale skin. And many people want a non-surgical vein removal treatment.
Laser Vein Removal
The Palomar Lux1064+™ Nd:YAG Laser is ideal for deep vein removal. It delivers concentrated light at a 1064nm wavelength. The light pulses from the laser will heat the blood within the veins. The heat of the blood causes the vein to constrict, collapse and ultimately fade from view. Skin is unaffected by the heat and also protected by the Advanced Contact Cooling™ system, so that the procedure is safe and comfortable.
Laser with Lux1064 is able to remove veins as large as 4 mm in diameter, and penetrate deeper beneath the surface of the skin. This is proven to diminish spider veins permanently, as their source is removed. Click here to see some amazing before after pictures of laser vein removal.
At Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we also offer IPL and sclerotherapy in conjunction with laser to effectively remove spider veins. Based on your individual concerns, our team of specialists will customize the ideal treatment plan for you.

Sclerotherapy Vein Removal
Sclerotherapy is an alternate option to treat spider veins. It 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 ultimately fade it away. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven technique that has been used since the 1930s.
