Spider veins are small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that mar facial appearance. These dilated capillaries on the skin resemble the legs of a spider, hence the name. At Dermaworks, we offer state-of-the-art, non-surgical treatments to remove unsightly clusters and restore your facial skin to an even tone and texture with our Ottawa spider vein removal.
We offer our patients safe, effective, pain-free treatments so you are finally free of unsightly facial spider veins. After a consultation and careful evaluation at our private clinic in Ottawa, we can take steps to restore a smooth, fresh, look to your facial skin by removing spider veins with our advanced laser treatment.
During our Ottawa spider vein removal treatment, an intense beam of light is directed at the vein to destroy it through the skin. After the vein is destroyed, the blood simply re-routes to deeper, healthier blood vessels. More than one laser treatment may be required to achieve optimal results.
Although a local anesthetic is administered to numb the treatment area, you may feel a slight tingling sensation during the procedure. A cooling system with the laser system works to keep your skin cool while the laser does its work.
Our advanced laser treatment for spider veins is performed on an outpatient basis and involves almost no recovery time. You can return home after treatment and are encouraged to walk. Your skin above the treated veins may have a reddish appearance resembling a scratch, which should fade away within two days after treatment.
Depending on the size and number of spider veins, you may need several laser treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins appear, additional treatments can be performed to keep you skin free and clear, looking its best.
