What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small, thin superficial capillaries that lie close to the surface of the skin. They can look like tree branches or a spider web with their short jagged lines. Spider veins can be found on both the legs and the face and can cover both very small and very large areas of skin.
What Causes Spider Veins?
No one knows exactly the cause of spider veins, but several factor, including heredity, are believed to cause a person to be more likely to develop them. Oral contraceptives, hormone changes and therapy, sun exposure, and the natural aging process also may contribute to their development. Spider veins may also be related to rosacea, and other trauma to the skin, or may be heredity.
How do treatments work?
The 940nm Laser delivers precise dosages of energy to targeted veins with minimal risk to surrounding healthy skin. The energy is absorbed by the targeted vein(s), causing thermal coagulation of the blood in the vessel.
What do treatments feel like?
Most experience little if any discomfort at the treatment site. The sensation and the degree of discomfort varies with each person. When pulses of light are delivered, some patients feel a mild pinching or stinging sensation, similar to the light snap of a rubber band. No local anesthesia or pain medication is typically required. However, some patients may prefer to use a topical anesthetic when sensitive areas are treated.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, 1 to 3 treatments may be required. Depending on severity, clients usually notice a significant improvement within one to two treatments.
Will the veins return after treatment?
Over time it is possible for new veins to appear, but these too can be removed. Optimal results can be maintained only if you apply sunscreen and avoid direct exposure to the sun.
How can I prevent spider veins?
You can do a number of things to help prevent veins and to relieve discomfort from those you have:
- To limit spider veins, protect your face from the sun by wearing at least 30 SPF sunscreen every day.
- Wear a hat when out in the sun for longer than 10 minutes.
- Apply a 45 SPF sunblock in the summer months from May to September when in the sun.
