What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins, also known as “Telangiectasia” are dilated (broken) capillaries on the skin (often resembling spider legs), they are red, blue or purple thread-like lines, and may develop on any part of the body, including the face, but most often appear on the thighs, calves or buttocks.
It is estimated that more than 75% of females over the age of 18 are troubled by spider veins, although it is also common among children and men alike.
What is Laser Spider Vein Removal?Laser technology offers a very effective means of treating spider veins. The laser has a unique ability to selectively target blood vessels without adversely affecting surrounding tissues. Laser light is specifically absorbed by the spider veins. The vessels are gently heated, causing the blood in the vessels to collapse. The body absorbs the treated blood vessels during the natural healing process.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending upon the severity of the veins, you may require two or more treatments. The treatment is performed on the existing blood vessels, which will vanish while treatment is in progress.
