LASER SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL
Many people suffer from unsightly spider veins. Spider veins are small clusters of red, purple, or blue lines that are clearly visible on the skin’s surface. They look like thin lines and are sometimes connected together like spider webs or tree branches. Spider veins are most often seen on the thighs, feet, and ankles but they can appear on the face as well. Laser technology today allows us to treat these veins to make them diminish considerably and even disappear.
The exact cause of spider veins is unknown. They affect both men and women, but are more common in women, suggesting that female hormones, especially post-menopausal hormone replacement, may play a part in their formation. Spider veins run in families, which points to a potential genetic cause as well. Injury and exposure to the sun are also implicated in spider vein formation.
One of the best treatment options to get rid of spider veins, lasers use heat energy to collapse the small blood vessels beneath the surface of the skin. Results are often seen after the first treatment; however, additional treatments may be required to get rid of spider veins completely. At Spa Bella, we use the gold standard long pulsed Nd:Yg (Yag) laser technology to get rid of spider veins in just a few easy treatments.
