Nd:Yag Laser VS Alexandrite

We have a family history of varicose vein. My grandmother actually had surgery to have them removed. Today I has spider vein removal on my leg here in Dubai. i had the procedure done before but the machine used was an Nd: Yag laser. There were discomfort but it was tolerable. Today the machine used was an Alexandrite laser machine. It was very painful and I actually had first degree burn with blisters. I was not that worried since my skin heals fast. Maybe Alexandrite laser reacts differently on skin types. I took pictures on my phone but i will upload them maybe after the blisters settled down. Maybe the results are better than my first session. It's better to give it time than conclude at once. At this stage, I favor Nd:yag laser for spider veins. I will update you on how it goes..
