Laser treatment: A laser beam is targeted at the blood vessel and the heat from the laser coagulates the blood inside, causing it to collapse and seal up—without damaging nearby skin, vessels, or tissue. Over several weeks, the vein will shrink and disappear. One to five sessions, spaced four weeks apart, is typically required.
