Spider veins aren’t dangerous, but they can keep you from feeling your best.
Telangiectasias, commonly known as spider veins, is a condition in which clusters of small dilated red or purple blood vessels appear on the legs, feet and face. Spider veins usually start to appear between the ages of 18-35 years and peaks between the ages of 50-60 years. They are quite common and can affect both men and women.
Causes of Spider Veins
There is no one specific cause of spider veins, but there are several factors that have shown to contribute to their development. Risk factors include:
- Weight Gain
- Hereditary or family history
- Hormone changes
- Birth Control Pills
- A history of blood clots
- Exposure to UV rays
- Crossing the legs for extended periods
- Standing for extended periods
- Trauma or impact, such as regular running or jogging
Laser Spider Vein Removal Treatment
Using the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Elite vascular laser can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones.
The Nd:Yag laser combines the ideal laser wavelength with the most flexible parameters to deliver a superior vascular laser system. It treats a broad range of vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins quickly, safely, and effectively.
How Does The Laser Work To Reduce Veins?
The advanced system delivers intense beams of of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel, which is harmlessly reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
