Spider veins appear as web-like patches on the skin’s surface. These can be purple, red, or blue in color and can appear on many different areas of the body. Fortunately, if you have spider veins, you can remove them easily with laser therapy.
Details on Spider Veins
Spider veins can occur anywhere on the body. The reasons behind their appearance include hormonal changes, weight gain, genetics, excessive standing, blood clots, and any other health problems.
Spider veins do not cause any major side effects, but some people may experience pain or irritation. They can also affect your appearance especially if they occur on your legs and face. Very often spider veins may appear on the nose or calves, resulting in an unpleasing look that can make you feel insecure.
Laser Vein Removal
Through the innovative power of laser vein removal, you can fight the appearance of spider veins. This treatment utilizes laser energy pulses that penetrate the skin and targets the veins. The nearby areas of skin are not affected.
When the light reaches the colored patches, it heats the veins. When a vein becomes completely heated, it can shrink and eventually disappear. The process may take a few weeks to complete after the initial treatment session. Once the vein has been treated with laser energy, it will die and begin to shrink. Eventually the body will absorb the vein and remove it through its natural processes.
Laser vein removal is performed with a handheld tool that applies the laser energy to the body. The temperature is maintained at optimal levels so that it is comfortable for patients. The laser devices also come with a cooling system to make the process more comfortable and easier to tolerate. You may feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment but no pain.
One session can last for 20-30 minutes. The exact number of sessions will depend on the extent of the spider veins that you want to remove. There is no need for incisions and you don’t have to worry about experiencing any downtime.
After the treatment is completed, you will need to take care not to expose yourself to the sun for a long period of time. You may be given post-treatment instructions that will need to follow to ensure the best results possible. These instructions may require you to stop smoking and to stop taking certain medications.
Benefits of Laser Vein Removal
The laser treatment for spider veins is painless and effective. Once the treatment is completed, you can return to your normal daily activities in no time at all. In time, you will benefit from an aesthetically pleasing body that is free of the unpleasant sight of spider veins.
Laser therapy is completely safe to use on different areas of the body and in all skin types. Not all treatment options for vein-related problems are ideal to use on the face. With laser therapy, you don’t have to worry about scarring, bruising, or burning occurring on the facial skin.
