Spider Vein Removal
What can the spider vein removal procedure do for me?
Spider veins are superficial facial and body veins that are visible as a result of dilated venules beneath the skin that many of us notice on our skin and would rather not have– in fact, about half of people over 50 are affected by varicose veins. The most popular and technologically-advanced treatment options are: the use of a specialized laser (Max G, Lux G, and YAG 1064nm), which emits a wavelength of light to safely target the pigment of the blood in the veins, as well as sclerotherapy, which uses the injection of a medical solution.
Spider veins are caused by:
- Prolonged standing
- Hormonal changes
- Increasing age
- Sun exposure
The result is a significant reduction in vascular lesions, varicose veins, blotchiness, telangiectasia. These types of imperfections continue to respond very well to laser treatment on our patients, helping to achieve their skin care goals.
Laser energy treatment is focused, so it does not damage nearby tissue and redirects the blood flow into deeper vessels, to achieve evened skin tone and lead the blood back to where it belongs.

Before & After
The MaxG™ IPL
The MaxG IPL is optimized for clearing vessels and vascular lesions, offering superior vesse clearance that goes beyond single-wavelength lasers. And with their patented advances in pulsed-light performance, you can experience a comfortable, no-downtime treatment on your way to a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
The Benefits of MaxG
Delivering dual bands of wavelengths to selectively target the absorption peaks of hemoglobin and preferentially heat blood in the presence of melanin, the MaxG offers superior closure of the larger, deeper facial vessels with Dynamic Spectrum Shifting.
The MaxG’s Dynamic Spectrum Shifting increases the concentration of near-infrared light with longer pulse widths to provide more uniform heating across the entire diameter of larger vessels.
In comparison to non-optimized pulsed light, the MaxG handpiece offers:
- More energy available across all pulse durations
- Greater peak power to address challenging small vessels
- Higher fluences to address mid-to-large-sized resistant vessels
The Yag 1064nm wavelength laser coagulates blood vessels and constricts them, closing them off. The vessel then degenerates, and the visible veins disappear. This is the treatment of choice for vascular lesions with unsurpassed efficacy and client comfort.
