Presence of superficial veins on the face and legs (telangiectasias) is a cosmetic problem that troubles millions of people. Spider veins are red, bluish or purple veins that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity.
We at MedSpa1064 offer effective treatment on sight. Small, superficial red veins can be successfully treated with the Nd:YAG laser. Some veins will disappear immediately and others will require several treatments over monthly intervals.
With a beam of light, the laser can deliver a prescribed dose of energy to the spider veins. The laser “selectively” coagulates the problem veins while sparing surrounding areas. After treatment, the vessel slowly and naturally disappears.
Results can be seen immediately or within three to four weeks. The amount of treatment will depend on the area and number on veins.
This is something that must be determined with each patient individually, but the majority of patients will benefit from this treatment.
This non-invasive treatment process can be done on sight. The time involved will vary on the individual and on the number of veins. After treatment, there is no down time – which means you can resume all of your normal activities immediately afterward.
Most individuals describe the treatment as a series of slight pin pricks or rubber band snaps to the skin. Patients tolerate this sensation without anesthetics. Comfort and safety is provided by applying cooling to the area to be treated.
