Removal of Leg Veins, Spider Veins, and Broken Blood Vessels on the Leg

Millions of people men and women alike are bothered by leg veins and spider veins on the calves and thighs.

We do have the latest and most effective spider vein and leg vein treatments available in our office. We use the Palomar®Lux1064® laser to remove spider veins and leg veins which is different from endovenous laser therapy.

There have been many other lasers used to treat leg veins and spider veins but most have not been able to effectively remove larger spider veins and leg veins and have not been able top treat the deeper communicating veins and thus the spider veins and leg veins tend to come back.

The 1064 laser is the best laser to treat spider veins and leg veins because it is able to remove veins as large as 4 mm in diameter and is able to penetrate deeper beneath the skin surface where the communicating veins reside.

I have tried all of the 1064 lasers on the market and chose the Palomar®Lux1064® laser because in my hands it worked the best. The Lux1064® effectively removes spider veins and leg veins and larger red vessels on the face. More importantly the Palomar®Lux1064® is much les painful than the other 1064 lasers I tried. I believe the unique pulse characteristic of the Palomar®Lux1064® delivers the laser energy in a way that causes much less discomfort than the others I tried.

Laser removal of spider veins and leg veins is effective for veins with a diameter of 4 mm or less. Larger and starburst leg veins may require sclerotherapy which is an injection technique. With sclerotherapy a solution of hypertonic saline is injected into the larger veins to close them. Afterwards the 1064 laser is used to “clean up” the smaller veins left behind.

Larger leg veins that are actually bulging out from the skin are called varicose veins. Varicose veins have traditionally been removed by surgery requiring an incision. However new endovenous laser therapy can remove larger leg veins without surgery by placing a laser catheter inside the vein and closing the varicose vein with endovenous laser energy.Endovenous laser therapy is a revolutionary and very exciting new treatment for varicose veins.
