Spider veins are dilated capillaries that are visible from the skin, and commonly appear on the face and legs. When found on the legs, they are usually being fed by larger reticular vein; both are treatable with the Cutera Nd: YAG. Vessels often present in complex patterns as the veins have become enlarged and have a number of causes from heredity to hormonal and more. With laser vein treatment, they don’t have to be permanent. At your consultation, a Dermis Skin Therapist will assess your veins and recommend a treatment course.

Laser Vein Removal OttawaAt Dermis, we perform laser vein removal procedures with the Cutera Nd: YAG Laser. It’s a simple procedure that works on many skin shades and can often take less than 20 minutes to complete. The laser heats the blood inside the dilated vessels, causing it to coagulate. The walls of these vessels will then collapse, and eventually dissolve—disappearing entirely.* The Cutera Nd: YAG delivers laser vein treatment that’s relatively painless and has minimal redness and bruising.


You may experience bulging vessels or inflammation after your laser treatment. These effects will disappear within a few hours, and you will begin to notice the treated veins slowly lightening. Within two to six weeks, they will have disappeared entirely.*

Due to the nature of the treatment, we recommended avoiding direct sunlight on the treatment area afterwards, as well as medication containing aspirin. Compression stockings or support hose may facilitate healing.

If you experience new spider veins, additional appointments can be scheduled six weeks apart. If you are predisposed to vascular issues, additional treatments may be necessary.
