Spider veins are so named because these tiny veins just beneath the skin often radiate out from a central point, reminiscent of the shape of a spider.  Spider veins can develop on any part of the body, including the face, thighs, calves, and ankles.

Laser Leg Vein removal works by selectively heating vein walls until they collapse and seal shut.  The sealed vein is then absorbed by the body over a period of months.  Most patients experience considerable improvement after 2 to 3 treatments, with 3 to 6 week intervals, depending upon the severity of the skin condition and level of treatment.
