How effective are laser treatments for spider veins? Laser treatment for spider veins is very effective. In general, you can expect a 70-75% improvement with the laser treatment for the spider veins. In our practice, we choose to treat the reticular veins which are the lighter blue veins that can be seen under the most superficial spider veins. When those are treated with injections and the residual veins are treated with a laser, you can get a success rate of closer to 90-95%
