Doctors are using laser procedures to close off smaller varicose veins especially on the upper body and the face. Laser treatments can also effectively treat varicose veins in the legs.

Laser surgery works by sending strong bursts of light onto the vein, which makes the vein slowly fade and disappear.

There are several types of lasers that can be used to treat varicose veins and spider veins on the legs and face (yellow light lasers, green light lasers, and other intense pulsed light systems).
