Spider veins, a common condition for millions of individuals, appear as visible blue or red veins under the surface of the skin. The small but unsightly veins can be a cause of embarrassment, and they usually form after long periods of sitting or standing. Fortunately, we offer laser spider vein removal treatment that can eliminate spider veins in order to restore naturally flawless skin. During laser spider vein removal treatment, Dr. Gallegos uses a special laser light that passes through the skin to the targeted vein. The laser light is absorbed by the blood in the spider vein, causing it to shrink and eventually disappear. The laser spider vein removal procedure is relatively painless and takes approximately 10 minutes. For more information on laser spider vein removal, contact our Albuquerque practice today. We also offer laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, and a variety of other customizable laser treatments.
