Spider veins , or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They appear most commonly on the face and legs and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. It is estimated that they affect nearly half of adult women in the U. For spider veins, our laser produces a highly unique wavelength, which safely passes through the skin and is selectively absorbed by the targeted blood vessel. The spider vein will then gradually disappear, leaving the skin intact.
