LASER SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL

Approximately half of the women in America struggle with the appearance of spider veins.

 

Spider veins are those localized clusters of purple, red, and blue veins that sit just beneath the skin. Medically known as telangiectasia, is the “branching,” jagged appearance of veins, similar to webbing, hence being called spider veins. Spider veins can be problematic because they often develop in highly visible areas, such as the face or the legs. Additionally, many people notice that they seem to spread exponentially over the years, eventually covering larger areas.

WHAT CAUSES SPIDER VEINS?

The reason that spider veins develop is because blood backs up in a localized area. This is why we often see this problem in the lower extremities. Weakness in the vascular valves enables blood to pool in certain vessels. When this accumulation of blood occurs in smaller, superficial veins, we see the discolored webbing of the veins on the surface.

Causes of spider veins include:

  • Prolonged sitting or standing on a regular basis, such as for work

  • Genetic makeup

  • Excess weight

  • Pregnancy and other conditions that affect hormonal balance

  • Sun exposure

The presence of spider veins can be quite frustrating. Rather than hide your legs, we invite you to explore your treatment options at Sassy Med Spa. Our team has the training and experience to remove your spider veins.

HOW DOES LASER SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL WORK?

Vein treatments have progressed with the development of innovative technologies. Laser vein treatment quickly and safely removes spider veins. This treatment also closes the affected veins, but rather than doing so using a chemical solution, laser vein treatment causes vein closure using heat. There is relatively little downtime after treatment. Patients can resume nearly all levels of activity the day after their appointment. Typically 2-4 sessions 6-8 weeks apart are needed for optimum results.

IS SPIDER VEIN TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Spider vein treatment is not intolerable but may be uncomfortable. There are no nerve endings in the veins. However, the surrounding nerves can pick up mild pain sensations. These may stem from the heat of the laser.
