Spider Vein Treatment
What Are Spider Veins?
‘Spider veins’ is a condition where the veins appear red or blue and occur on the legs, face and other body parts. The condition adopts its name from the similarity in appearance with that of a spider web.
They appear most commonly in women because of hormonal imbalances caused by puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Some of the factors that cause spider veins or varicose veins include: puberty, hormonal changes, weight gain, lack of physical activity, pregnancy, birth control pills and sitting or standing for long periods of time. In some cases, these veins occur on the face and cheeks of fair-skinned individuals when they are exposed to the sun.
How do I get rid of them?
With no painful injections, and the most advanced technology, we can treat the tiny superficial veins, spider veins, and the deeper blue veins.
We use the Rolls Royce of Laser machines, which delivers pulses of light energy, which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is then absorbed into the body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface.
How long will it take?
Patients often find that one or two treatments is sufficient. However, the number of treatments does depend on the number, colour and size of the vessels being treated. Patients usually experience a stinging sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered and following treatment, the pain is very minimal to non existent. Patients find that the majority of the treated veins have shown significant improvement within two to six weeks of treatment.
The results are significant and almost immediate!
