3 to 4 sessions initially depending on how many veins there are. it is a good idea to get maintenance treatments, to keep them suppressed.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy uses a non-laser high-intensity fount of light to treat spider veins, as well as a variety of other skin problems. IPL treats spider veins by heating & destroying the walls of the blood vessel.
This makes them collapse & disappear over time. IPL is very effective on small veins that are close to the surface of the skin.
Red veins/ thread veins
These are little blood vessels that travel close to the surface of the skin & look like fine red, or somewhat purple, wiggly lines.
They’re also called ‘spider veins’ or ‘broken veins’, although the veins aren’t in broken but only slightly enlarged. The medical term for them is telangiectasia. They can be on the face or on the legs.
