Eliminate Spider Veins with Laser Vein Removal
Spider veins can have a negative impact on appearance when they become visible through the skin. The most common places for them to appear are the legs and face. The fact that, except for rare circumstances, they do not cause any threats to a person’s health is of little consolation if you are one of those individuals whose self-esteem is damaged by their presence. If this sounds like your situation, it may be time to consider laser vein removal at our office.
Spider veins form when the smaller vessels, or capillaries, that deliver the blood from the larger vessels to all parts of the body do not function as they should. They can become broken or enlarged and be visible through the skin. To complicate the appearance issue even further, they seldom appear in isolation. Rather, they are interwoven together in much the same way the web of a spider is. They appear as fine lines that branch out in different directions, often with sharp twists and turns. They can be red, blue or purple.
If you are bothered by their appearance, there are treatment methods available that will get rid of them. One of the most common therapies for the removal of spider veins involves the use of lasers. When the treatments are delivered, a special device is passed across the surface of the skin in a way that targets the vessels that are to be removed. During treatment, the energy is focused on the veins, it is converted to heat as the veins absorb it and the heat safely destroys the veins. The tissue that is left of these veins begins to be absorbed by the body. Over time, they are no longer visible.
Laser spider vein removal is a process that does not require any downtime for recovery. You can have the treatment done and get back to normal business right away. There may be some redness in the treatment area. This, however, should disappear in just days.
Depending on the number of veins that need to be treated and their size, you may need a series of treatments to get the results you want. They are spaced a set amount of time apart to ensure an optimal outcome.
Once spider veins appear, they are not likely to go away on their own. You will need treatment to get rid of them.
