Occasionally, spider veins appear on other areas of the body including the chest, back and face. Varicose veins are larger. They can appear raised with a bluish color and can become quite painful. Although spider veins and varicose veins carry blood, they are not necessary and can be safely removed.
How does Spider Vein removal work?
Laser Spider Vein Removal
Laser spider vein removal and laser varicose vein removal allow individuals with unsightly and unwanted veins to have them reduced safely, quickly and effectively. Both laser vein removal procedures are minimally invasive and are performed during an office visit.
With laser spider vein removal and laser varicose vein removal, veins fade significantly or clear completely. Skin looks more uniform and youthful. Although laser vein removal may not correct all the imperfections of the treated area, the overall results can be successful; most patients are satisfied with treatment. Laser vein removal does not prevent new veins from forming, however, if new veins appear over time further treatment may be needed to maintain the results of previous treatment.
We utilize the Long Pulse Yag Laser and / or the IPL Laser to treat Spider Vein removal
What can I expect after the first treatment?
Complete correction of the treated area is not expected on the first treatment. In most cases, about 40 to 70% of the treated vessels will be gone for good. However, new veins may appear and larger clumps often require additional treatments for optimum results. These treatments are usually at least 2 months apart.
You may be asked to wear special support stockings to help keep pressure on the veins. This will reduce bruising and help keep the treated veins closed. Bruises around the treated areas usually disappear after the first week. A tan or brownish pigment may persist for 2-4 months when larger veins are involved. Occasionally, small clots can develop at the injection site. These are not a cause for concern and may be removed to allow faster healing.
Patients are generally encouraged to resume normal activities immediately. We do ask that you refrain from vigorous activities for the first 24 hours. Walking is encouraged because it increases blood flow through the other veins.
Are lasers helpful for leg veins?
Lasers are also used to treat blood vessels called telangiectasias. In most cases we start with a and progress with lasers for difficult to treat areas. The level of discomfort is similar for both lasers and sclerotherapy.
