Laser Leg Vein Removal

Vascular laser treatment can be a possible addition to sclerotherapy and other vein reducing options offered at OHSU.

Visible spider veins and varicose veins on the legs are very common for both women and men. Most varicose and spider veins appear in the legs since leg veins have the toughest job of carrying blood back to the heart. Heredity, weight, gravity and weak vein valves all play a part in increasing a person’s chance of developing varicose or spider veins. 

For the majority of people, multiple types of treatments may be necessary. Vascular laser can be a possible addition to sclerotherapy and other vein reducing options available, especially for smaller spider veins that are clustered together. 

If you are interested in leg vein removal, please schedule a consultation with a provider. Your skin and goals are unique and your provider will evaluate your skin and discuss the options available for you. You may need a series of treatments to achieve your goals.
