Laser Vein Treatment

Unsightly Spider Veins are just a zap away with laser treatments


Spider Veins are small red, purple and blue vessels that twist and turn under the skin. They are easily visible, and often found on the face and legs. No one knows why some people develop Spider Veins and others do not. However, a number of factors predispose a person to Spider Veins including heredity, obesity, use of birth control, hormones, history of blood clots, and occupations that involve a lot of standing such as nurses, hair stylists, teachers and factory workers. Medical conditions such as Rosacea, liver disease and prolonged use of steroids, often make them more prominent. Age and sun damage can also play a role. Spider Veins also seem to appear more frequently in women than in men, and are particularly common in pregnant women and those taking oral contraceptives or hormone-replacement therapy.
Due to their similar appearance, Spider Veins are often mistaken for Varicose Veins. However, Spider Veins are smaller, and lie beneath the skin rather than protruding through it. This makes them natural candidates for laser treatment. Varicose veins are not treated at The Derm Centre. Please have your doctor refer you to a surgeon or a doctor who can perform sclerotherapy.


The GentleMax Pro system uses laser technology, directing powerful yet gentle light-based energy into the skin. The laser targets the treatment area, causing the blood inside it to coagulate. Over time, the vein collapses and eventually disappears. 

Because the laser energy is directed toward the vein, the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. Patients report that laser pulses deliver a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. Discomfort is further minimized by GentleMax Pro’s patented DCD™ cooling device, which releases cooling bursts of cryogen with each laser pulse.


You will need a few treatment sessions to see results. Expect anywhere from two to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart. Following your treatment regimen, the veins will gradually change color from blue to light red, and they will eventually vanish over the course of two to six weeks after your last session.
