Can intense pulse light therapy treat light colored spider veins?

Intense Pulse Light Therapy . 1 answer . 4 years ago

From what I understand, IPL works by targeting the dark veins against lighter skin. I have spider veins that are a light pink/red. Is the lack of contrast a concern?

In my opinion, it works better on the tiny reddish veins. The larger the vein the more bluish they are and IPL will be less effective.
