This intense pulse light therapy technique of treating spider veins uses intense pulsed light that can be used to selectively damage or destroy abnormal veins including small spider veins and small vascular birthmarks.
Unlike laser, the intense light therapy is more suited for vascular lesions slightly deeper in the skin. This treatment may be recommended when sclerotherapy or laser therapy does not effectively treat the superficial vein. Two to four treatments may be required depending on the number and size of the lesions.
Pulsed light is a non-invasive form of light therapy that is specifically designed to eliminate undesired blood vessels from all parts of the body. The pulse light generates a pulse of intense, concentrated energy which is directed through a hand piece to the blood vessel underneath the skin.
