What Causes Spider Veins?
One of the most common causes of spider veins is simply heredity. Yep. mom and dad had a lot to do with them.

So, being that there are a lot of causes — and with many causes being out of your control — there is only so much you can do to eliminate them. Fortunately, we’re here to help!
How Does the Laser Work?
Lasers are basically super-concentrated light. Normal light spreads out from its source in all directions, almost like a park fountain that sprays water that children can play in. The laser acts more like the spray-nozzle on your kitchen sink that helps to clean your dishes. It takes light (energy) and focuses it on a specific point. This selectively gets rid of abnormal veins which are the root cause.
They work in a pulsing fashion. It is necessary for a medical professional to perform the procedure, as the laser can cause damage if improperly utilized. Overall, it is a simple, quick, easy, and non-invasive way to help correct the condition.
