Service Description

Also called telangiectasia ,... spider veins are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are caused by increased pressure in the veins, which can be a result of standing for long periods. For this reason, people in certain fields such as nursing and teaching are often more susceptible to developing spider veins. However, they may also be hereditary. Spider veins are often blue, red, or purple, and have the appearance of a spider web, which is how they got their name. They are most often found on the face and legs. Sclerotherapy is a popular method of eliminating spider veins and small varicose veins using a solution called a sclerosing agent. The sclerosing agent is injected into the veins to break down the vein wall. Does sclerotherapy work for everyone? ​The majority of individuals who receive sclerotherapy treatments will have visible improvement or clearing of the veins completely. However, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be effective in every case. Some veins may be too small for sclerotherapy and may require laser treatment. All sclerotherapy patients should wear compression hose for 2 weeks following treatment. Can be combined with Laser therapy ​The GentleMax Pro system uses laser technology, directing powerful yet gentle light-based energy into the skin. Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins. The laser uses a focused beam of light. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused and does not damage the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears. It is generally recommended that the treatments be spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins appear, additional treatments are required for optimum results. How many treatments will I need? The number of treatments needed to clear or improve varicose or spider veins differ for each person. The number of treatments can range from one to six, with the average number being three or four. Individual veins may require more than one treatment. Over time, as we age, more veins may appear. These vessels may be treated as well, but optional.
