NdYAG laser treatment of veins
 

The laser light is applied along the length of the vein, at intervals of about ½ cm. The vein changes colour immediately and over the course of the next few days, is absorbed by the body. 

 

If any segment of the vein remains, the treatment is repeated at monthly intervals until the remaining segment disappears.
