Does a change in vein color from blue/purple to red indicate spider veins are shrinking/disappearing? (& treatment is working?)

After being treated with a laser, it is common for veins to change in color. You can often expect to see darkening of the veins after treatment, and then a gradual lightening. I would not be too concerned with this occurrence. However, speaking with your treatment provider about this issue could bring you some peace of mind.
