Laser Vein Removal
Visible 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, branches or clusters visible 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.

Spider veins due to broken capillaries are extremely common. Affecting both men and women, they have a variety of causes including weakened or damaged valves in the veins. They may also be caused by hormonal changes, skin damage or exposure to the sun, 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. Red or purple spider veins can be quite visible on pale skin and many people want a safe, non-surgical method to remove them.
So what’s the good news? At Q Esthetics Laser Clinics three GTA locations, 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 and your skin assessment, our team of specialists 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. These very tiny vessels and capillaries, which are too small for treatment with a sclerotherapy needle, respond well to laser which heats and shrinks them. Clinical studies have proven that the IPL device achieves superior efficacy than other laser treatments, and with significantly less downtime*.
Laser for Spider Veins Treatment
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 (reticular) veins*. The light pulses from the laser will heat the blood within the veins. The heat of the blood affects the vessel lining and blood flow, which 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. Minor swelling or bruising can be present for a few days post treatment, and treated veins may temporarily darken or feel firm as the body heals.
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 surface of the skin, where the communicating veins reside. This is proven to diminish spider veins permanently*as their source is removed.

What does laser vein removal treatment feel like?
Laser vein removal is usually very well-tolerated with minimal discomfort. A highly trained medical aesthetician or laser technician will move the hand-piece over your skin, following the length of the vein while applying the laser on the targeted area. You may feel a mild sensation on the skin while the hand-piece is being pulsed.
What can I expect during and after the treatment?
The laser vein treatments are skin-safe and comfortable. The most important factor in laser vein treatment and sclerotherapy is the experience and training of the physician doing the injections. Your Q Esthetics Laser Clinic consultant will go over the risks and benefits of the treatment with you, during your complimentary consultation. The hand-piece delivers its energy in one smooth and gentle pulse to protect the skin from an uncomfortable rise in temperature.
Immediately after the laser vein removal, you may experience The vessel disappears, darkens, shrinks. 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. Usually, multiple treatments will be necessary to achieve full clearance of facial veins or leg veins. Additional vein removal treatments should be scheduled 8 to 12 weeks apart. Your practitioner will likely advise you to avoid strenuous activity for a few days post treatment, though walking regularly is good for the legs if treated. You may be asked to avoid saunas, hot baths or long flights for the first few days as well. Compression stockings are often advised after treatment for deeper veins and varicose veins on the legs.
