They all involve a little discomfort and bruising afterwards but they generally work well.

Laser might be best: It depends on the skill and experience of the treating doctor but, as dr. Wright said, there are a number of options. Sclerotherapy works but requires the most skill.

It has been done: Techically ipl isn't really a laser but it is similar in that both treat veins by applying heat to them. Ipl has certainly been used for treating red spider veins on the legs but there are other methods of treatment that are more common these days, including rf thermocoaulation, laser, and sclerotherapy. Most of the time, when it comes to leg veins, vein experts will tell you that sclero is best. ...Read more
I am experiencing varicose veins and bulging veins. The following also describes me: Red spider veins. What should I do?
Sclero and Laser: Spider veins can be very effectively treated by a combination of superficial laser and injection sclerotherapy, to resolve the visible veins on the surface, as well as the underlying feeding veins that are the source of the problem. Treatment requires multiple sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, but have no downtime or major inconvenience. See an experienced phlebologist to ensure appropriate care. ...Read more
Absolutely: In fact, tiny spider veins of the face respond very well to appropriate laser treatment, and generally respond even faster than those on the legs, which can take multiple treatments to resolve.

Make sure that you are seen at an experienced, reliable vein center with the correct type of laser. ...Read more

I have like red dots that look like spider veins and they keep getting worse as I get older how can I get rid of them?
Red spots: As we age not only does our skin build up evidence of years of cumulative sun damage but we also undergo hormonal changes. Both of these things can bring on spider veins, cherry Angiomas, etc. They can be easily treated 'zapped' with a vascular laser to erase those new lesions. Unfortunately given more time you will likely develop more of those spots in the future. ...Read more

"stretch marks": "Stretch marks" are actually breaks in the underneath layer of connective tissue in your skin, and when they occur at first are like healing scars, which show up as slightly red, and which will fade and become white against the pigment of your skin. They are not harmful, but only of cosmetic significance. ...Read more
Will intense pulsed light (ipl) technology help reduce my spider veins? I have little red veins on 50 percent of my thighs above my knees. I feel very unattractive when I wear my swimsuit. I feel like people see the spider veins instead of me. Is intense
IPL: Ipl is partially effective in that it will cause coagulation of the small telangiectasias in the most superficial layers of the dermis. The problem arises in that the recticuar feeding veins in the dermal and subdermal subcutaneous fat are generally too deep to be effected without running the risk of significant thermal damage. Secondly, a full venous duplex ultrasound exam, done in the standing position, is really needed to uncover if there is underlying venous insufficiency from an incompetent varicose vein (usually great saphenous, small saphenous, anterior or posterior accessory saphenous or a thigh or calf muscle perforator vein) which is really the root of the problem because the spider complex will reform with in the next 2 or 3 months unless the more proximal cause of the venous insufficiency is correctly addressed. ...Read more
