The best and gold standard treatment for spider veins is laser therapy. Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. Laser therapy has been used in medicine for more than 30 years. Advances in technology have helped developed many different lasers. The laser uses a focused beam of light. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light is attracted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused and does not damage the nearby tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
