Spider Veins Removal with the use of lasers can remove or drastically reduce the appearance of spider veins on your face and body. Unlike surgery, spider veins removal is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require excessive downtime.
Spider veins removal treatment is performed at our office in Boca Raton FL. This aesthetic procedure can help you regain your confidence by shedding the need to hide your skin from the world.
Whether you have a tiny spider vein or a large cluster somewhere, chances are you’ve thought at some point about getting them removed. Unfortunately, spider veins won’t go away on their own. Creams or scrubs that claim to diminish the appearance of spider veins simply aren’t effective. Let the experts at our offices help you overcome your spider veins and reclaim a love for your skin.
What You Need to Know About Spider Veins
Spider veins can develop on just about anyone and are particularly common on the face, nose, and legs. They are essentially dilated capillaries on the skin that branch out much like the legs of a spider. In addition to simply being a blemish on the skin, they can also become sensitive or even cause you pain depending on their location.
Though doctors aren’t completely sure why spider veins develop, you seem to be more likely to develop them due to the following:
- Prolonged time being on feet
If you already have a few spider veins, chances are high that you’ll develop more as you age. You can help keep them at bay by staying active, maintaining a healthy weight, or wearing compression clothing. However, we understand that sometimes there’s just nothing that can be done to prevent the formation of spider veins.
The Technology Behind Laser Spider Vein Treatments
If you are currently struggling with the appearance of your skin due to spider veins, look no further than laser spider vein treatments for their removal. Lasers are very effective in reducing their appearance and can actually remove them altogether. Depending on the severity of the veins and your complexion, you might need multiple treatments over time.
Laser treatments to remove spider veins work by your laser specialist focusing the light beam of a laser on the area of your skin that has the unwanted vein. The laser heats up the deeper layers of skin and destroys the vein. To help with any discomfort you might feel during the procedure, your doctor will administer a local anesthetic.
Over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, you’ll actually watch the veins disappear before your eyes. If you’re not completely satisfied with your results after the first treatment session, you can increase the effectiveness with return visits.
Spider Veins Treatment Results at LifeGaines Wellness Center
Most patients are extremely pleased with the results spider veins removal with lasers can provide to them after just one session. While you’re waiting for your veins to fade from their customary dark blue to red and then finally disappear, you’ll want to make sure you avoid excessive sun exposure and any creams or cosmetics that might irritate the skin above the vein that was treated.
You might experience some light bruising or discomfort, but rest assured this will subside over the course of the first week following treatment. The recovery time for spider veins removal is minimal, and you are encouraged to go back to your normal routine immediately while your skin heals and the veins slowly disappear.
