Certain aesthetic issues, like spider veins, can go away on their own. However, this isn’t always the case, and if your facial veins have lingered for longer than a few weeks, it may be time to seek a spider vein removal treatment. Here at Le Parlour NYC Laser Spa, we use the Elite+™ laser device to reduce spider veins. Get in touch to schedule a treatment here at our Flatiron laser spa.
Why Are Spider Veins Hard to Remove?
Spider veins are not necessarily hard to remove, but they can be persistent. As we age, the appearance of these veins can become more common as well due to the weakening of vein valves. Other factors can put you at risk of developing these veins, too, including genetics, sun damage, hormones, and more.
These factors and how often spider veins tend to recur can make getting rid of them for good a hassle. That’s where laser spider vein removal comes in.
Why Choose Elite+™ for Spider Vein Removal?
Elite+™ is an advanced laser treatment that features cooling technology and offers the ability to adjust wavelengths to fit different needs. This means that the treatment can be done precisely while minimizing any discomfort you may feel over the course of the procedure. Since the treatment is non-invasive, it requires little to no downtime afterward.
Laser Spider Vein Removal Process
During your treatment, we will identify the veins you want to be removed and target them with the Elite+™ device. The laser’s energy will be directed at the pigment of the veins. Its heat will then bypass your skin and other tissues to target the veins themselves. The heat will cause the veins to collapse, and blood flow will be redirected.
Elite+™ Spider Vein Removal Results
While spider veins can sometimes go away on their own after 3-6 weeks, thanks to the Elite+™, you can get the spotless skin you want after a simple visit to our NYC office. Our laser technician and aesthetician, Maya, has over 18 years of experience in helping patients address their skin concerns using laser technology. Get in touch today to get the care you deserve.

Spider Vein Removal FAQs
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are small, thin veins that appear on the skin’s surface, usually on the legs or face. They are often blue, red, or purple and can resemble a spider web or tree branches. Spider veins occur when the valves in the veins weaken or malfunction, causing blood to pool in the vein and leading to the development of these visible veins.
What are the common causes of spider veins?
The most common causes of spider veins include genetics, age, hormonal changes, obesity, pregnancy, standing or sitting for long periods, and certain medications.
What is spider vein removal?
Spider vein removal is a treatment to eliminate small, visible veins that appear on the surface of the skin, often on the legs or face. These veins, also known as telangiectasias, are typically blue, red, or purple in color and can be caused by various factors, such as genetics, age, hormonal changes, and lifestyle.
What are the treatment options for spider veins?
There are several treatment options for spider veins, including:
- Sclerotherapy: This is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting a solution directly into the spider vein, causing it to collapse and eventually fade away. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective treatment that typically requires several sessions to achieve optimal results.
- Laser treatment: Laser treatment involves using a high-energy laser beam to heat and destroy the spider vein, causing it to fade away over time. This treatment is minimally invasive and usually requires several sessions to achieve the desired results.
- Radiofrequency (RF) treatment: This is a non-surgical treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the vein, causing it to collapse and eventually fade away. RF treatment is effective for treating spider veins on the face, legs, and other parts of the body and typically requires several sessions for optimal results.
- Compression stockings: Compression stockings are a non-invasive treatment option that can help alleviate the symptoms of spider veins, such as pain, swelling, and discomfort. These stockings apply pressure to the affected area, improving blood flow and reducing the appearance of spider veins over time.
Which spider vein removal treatment is right for me?
The best spider vein removal treatment for you will depend on your individual condition and goals. Your dermatologist or skincare professional will evaluate your condition and recommend the most appropriate treatment option based on your specific needs.
Is spider vein removal painful?
Spider vein removal treatments are generally not painful, and most patients experience only a mild discomfort during the procedure. Local anesthesia or a cooling gel may be applied to the skin to help minimize any discomfort.
How many sessions of spider vein removal will I need?
The number of sessions required for spider vein removal will depend on the size and number of veins being treated, as well as the individual’s response to the treatment. Most patients require between 1-3 sessions, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
What can I expect during spider vein removal treatment?
During sclerotherapy treatment, a solution will be injected into the affected veins using a small needle. You may feel a slight pinch or sting as the solution is injected. During laser therapy, a special handpiece will be passed over the affected area, delivering the laser energy. You may feel a mild warmth or tingling sensation during the procedure. The treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and number of veins being treated.
What can I expect after spider vein removal treatment?
After the treatment, you may experience some mild redness, swelling, and bruising in the treated area, which should subside within a few days. You should avoid exposing the treated area to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for a few days after the treatment. It is also important to wear compression stockings or bandages as directed by your skincare professional to help maximize the results.
Why choose Aura RF Skin tightening for spider vein removal?
