Spider veins are small, thready blood vessels that arise in various places on the face and body. They also tend to occur more often in particular parts of the face, which can create uneven pigmentation where it is not desired. Over time, they can enlarge and become more pronounced. Spider veins are usually caused by damaged blood vessels and typically appear on aging individuals.

How does spider vein treatment work?
Photorejuvenation can greatly diminish the appearance of spider veins, also called telangiectasias. Avalon Laser uses a technology that combines radio-frequency and laser energy to send energy into the skin while not disrupting the skin’s surface. Our technology is non-invasive and targets irregular skin pigmentation as well as rosacea, blotchy brown spots, and uneven skin texture while leaving the healthy surrounding tissues intact.
Photorejuvenation can also stimulate collagen which smooths out small, fine wrinkles to produce smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin. Although spider vein treatment with photorejuvenation is most often performed on the face, problem areas on the neck, chest and hands can easily be treated to improve their appearance.
How do IPL treatments work to rejuvenate the skin?
IPL and lasers both use light to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, which produces a heat reaction in the skin. This stimulates the skin to produce collagen and constricts the blood vessels so that they are not as prominent, producing smoother skin and more even pigmentation.
The difference between regular lasers and IPL is that IPL uses varying wavelengths of light, while a laser uses one, specific wavelength. The IPL’s broader spectrum of high-intensity light makes it possible for the same device to treat multiple conditions at the same time.
How does radio frequency treat spider veins?
The energy heats up the vein and closes it shut, so any more problematic veins that cannot be treated with IPL can be successfully removed. This is, arguably, the most effective treatment pairing for reducing spider veins.
