Removal of Spider Leg Veins
If you sometimes avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — those small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you are not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.
A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:
• Hormonal shifts
• Weight gain
• Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
In some women, spider veins become noticeable in their early 20s. For others, the veins may not become obvious until they reach their 40s. Men get spider veins, too. However, usually they are concealed by hair growth on the leg.

What is Laser Vein Treatment?
A laser is a highly focused beam of light and can be used to treat varicose veins. Laser heat damages a vein, which makes scar tissue form. This scar tissue closes the vein. A closed vein loses its source of blood and dies. After a year or two, the vein is likely to disappear.
Simple laser treatment. Simple laser vein treatment can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just under the skin’s surface. Usually, more than one laser session is needed and they are scheduled every 6 to 12 weeks.
