What are Spider Veins?
These are small veins that appear on the face and legs and are primarily blood vessels that have ruptured as a result of either aging, sun damage, or a hereditary factor. In addition, it is possible to suffer from leg veins due to long hours of staying in one position for a certain period whether sitting cross-legged or standing. Other common factors that contribute to developing spider veins include hormone replacement therapy, birth control pills and pregnancy.
Addressing Spider Veins
Laser Vein Therapy is a safe, non-invasive way of eliminating spider veins in your face and legs. This method involves the use of a solution that is injected on the affected area. A fine needle is used in injecting your veins, and this will help collapse and treat inflammation.
Our certified laser professionals selectively target the vessels with the specialized laser therapy causing them to collapse. The tissue and blood is then absorbed by the body and flushed out naturally. Upon the collapse of the vein, it is no longer possible for the blood to re-enter.
We do not use this type of treatment in our clinic and feel we accomplish the desired outcome without such invasive procedures.
Things to Expect
You typically need 3-4 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. While we have you wait at least 6 weeks between treatments, you can actually continue to see improvements for several months after each treatment.
This process has no negative impact to your blood circulation. Thus, this treatment option is considered as a useful and necessary way to get rid of veins while improving the appearance of your legs. Over time, you will feel more confident and happier about flaunting your gorgeous legs.
The number of treatment sessions largely depends on how severe your condition is. Your session lasts about an hour, and you will be able to observe these veins disappear almost instantly. After undergoing the procedure, you may be advised to wear pressure hosiery for at least 3 days post-treatment. This helps prevent bleeding and supports healing.
Depending on your condition, you may want to do follow-up treatments annually or so, this can also ensure preventing the development of new spider veins.

We specialize in the treatment of the smaller cosmetic spider vessels, not the large vericose veins. If a patient presents with larger veins in addition to their smaller vessels we recommend they treat the larger ones first and them come back to us to professionally clean up the smaller ones.
