At some point in your life, you may notice the emergence of tiny veins in various places on your body. Spider veins can appear quite suddenly and cause a measure of psychological distress. Fortunately, we at River Region Dermatology offer laser therapy for spider veins removal. We encourage you to learn more about this treatment and find out how it can benefit you.
What Exactly Causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small blood vessels that sit shallowly in your skin and tend to appear purple, blue, or red. As the name suggests, they tend to resemble spider webs. These veins don’t often pose any medical harm but can cause a deal of self-consciousness and generally arise due to factors concerning genetics, weight, and occupation.
Laser Therapy for Spider Veins Removal
Laser therapy is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical way to treat spider veins. During laser therapy, a laser is applied to the spider vein; the vein absorbs the light as heat and eventually collapses on itself. Your body then naturally eliminates the vein over time. To totally eradicate a spider vein you may require more than one session. Our professionals will be happy to sit down with you and help you structure a treatment plan that best fits your needs and aesthetic goals. We are also proud to offer Asclera® sclerotherapy as an alternative treatment to laser therapy.
