For many women and men, varicose veins and spider veins mean wearing pants or long skirts and dresses year-round to hide the blue twisted or web-like formations. Along with the undesirable aesthetics, these issues can be itchy, irritating, or even painful.
With Laser Vein Treatment, you can wear the short cocktail dress or the golf shorts, and stand or sit for longer without embarrassment or physical discomfort.

Spider veins and varicose veins are common concerns that affect as much as half the population.
Spider veins are tiny, dilated blood vessels that appear near the surface of the skin on the legs, face, or other areas of the body. They often develop due to weakened or damaged valves within the veins, which allow blood to pool and create visible, web-like clusters. Spider veins can be hereditary and are more common in women, especially during pregnancy or menopause. They are most often not painful but can be irritating and unsightly.
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen veins that often appear as raised, twisted cords beneath the skin’s surface. They can occur when the valves in larger veins, typically in the legs, become weak, which causes blood to flow backward and pool in the veins. Varicose veins can be caused by a wide range of factors, including genetics, aging, obesity, pregnancy, and prolonged periods of standing or sitting.
Addressing varicose veins and spider veins with a laser is a safe, effective procedure that requires no downtime. This treatment works by targeting blood vessels through the skin. The laser penetrates the blood vessels and causes them to coagulate and then be absorbed by the body through natural processes.
Unlike sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution into the veins, laser vein treatment is completely non-invasive and needle-free. Laser vein treatment is performed in-office and does not require the use of any sedatives or anesthesia.
If you deal with vein concerns, either varicose or spider veins, you understand how they can affect your daily life. Standing or sitting for too long can cause veins to become irritating or even painful. You may make decisions on what clothing to wear, even on the hottest days, based on the way your legs look due to unsightly veins. These concerns could be eliminated by addressing the issue with laser vein treatment.
Our patients enjoy great benefits, including:
- Eliminate painful, uncomfortable varicose veins
- See web-like spider veins disappear
- Avoid invasive techniques
- No downtime, no anesthesia
Since this treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, and performed in-office, almost anyone who would like to treat and get rid of their spider veins or varicose veins is a good candidate. Laser treatment is also safe for any skin type, but keep in mind that this treatment can fade tattoos, so you would want to carefully consider receiving treatment in an area where tattoos are present. This treatment is also not recommended while pregnant. If you’d like to find out if you’d make a good candidate for our laser vein treatment Houston vein experts at PS MedSpa can address that and any other questions you have during an initial consultation.
