Spider veins

Spider veins are small red or blue, sometimes fanning out veins that show on legs and feet. In most cases, they are harmless and merely a cosmetic problem. However, they might indicate constitutional connective tissue weakness or underlying vein problems . By now, there are highly successful treatment options that allow for getting rid of these unattractive veins.

How to remove or atrophy spider veins

Spider veins are of reddish or blueish colour. All spider veins result from small veins. At our day clinic in Zurich, we offer treatments with the NdYag- or alexandrite laser as well as combinations of both of them.

Treatments are ideally made in winter. After the treatment, direct sunlight and solariums are to be avoided for at least 12 weeks. Likewise, you shouldn’t go to the sauna/steam bath for at least 2 weeks.

If necessary, the treatment can be repeated after 4 to 6 weeks. Wearing compression stockings can support the treatment but is not mandatory.
