Surface lasers for the skin, like our 532nm KTP lasers and our 1064nm Nd: YAG laser, are sometimes useful for very tiny spider veins. The challenge with surface lasers for spider veins in the legs is the very high pressure on these veins. As a result, surface lasers for spider veins in the legs are often not very effective. Another issue that arises with these surface lasers when treating spider veins in the legs is the heat, pain, and slower treatment times when compared with modern sclerotherapy for spider veins. Most experienced vein experts rely primarily on sclerotherapy for best results when treating spider veins on their patient’s legs.
