Some marks on our bodies are part of a beautiful memory; others, not so much. Tattoo removal is an easier process today, where treatment using lasers like the Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser or the PicoSure® Laser, which is now considered a gold standard for removing tattoos, can be used to target and coagulate blood vessels and reduce the appearance of tattoos.
This same medical technology can be used to treat spider veins and varicose veins. Varicose veins are twisted and enlarged veins that run close to the surface of the skin and look like red and sometimes purple wiggly lines. Spider veins are small varicose veins and have a web-like appearance, hence the name. They can be treated and removed with lasers.
There is no downtime with these procedures.
