As we grow older, many of us tend to notice small clusters of red, blue or purple veins on our thighs, calves and ankles. These unsightly problems, known as spider veins, are caused by a number of factors, including heredity and pregnancy. The very sight of these Spider and Varicose Veins make us want to cover our legs! We become very self-conscious when going out to public places like the beach. Not only can these make legs appear unattractive, bothersome symptoms such as aching, burning, swelling, and night cramps are associated with these spider veins.
Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery believes that it is in your best interest to have a complete understanding of Varicose and Spider Veins, and the newest treatments available to you before undergoing treatment.
What is Laser Vein Removal?
Some people notice spider veins, which are small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins, appearing on their thighs, calves, ankles and even their face!
With simple Laser Vein Removal, a laser is used to shoot an intense beam of light directly at the spider vein. This obliterates the veins through the skin. The heat from the laser’s beam of light will damage the vein, which makes scar tissue form. This scar tissue will close the vein, causing it to lose its source of blood. The vein, without a blood source, will die and eventually disappear. Laser Vein Treatment is done on the outside of your skin. It can treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins just under the skin's surface. Usually there are a few treatments required to fully wipe out the vein.
What causes Spider & Varicose veins?
There are many contributing factors to the development of these visible veins including:
- Hormonal shifts
- Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
- Weight fluctuation
