Spider veins are smaller and thinner veins that typically appear on the face or legs. Although they're generally painless, they can reduce the overall appearance of your skin. To help you take back your confidence, Balance Hormone Center offers effective and fast spider vein removal treatment.
Reduce the Appearance of Veins With Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins are quite common occurrences. They affect many aging adults, typically more women than men. Spider veins occur when blood pools near the surface of your skin. They're typically caused by aging as well as fluctuations in your hormones. They can also be hereditary.
Spider veins shouldn't be confused with varicose veins, which are gnarled, enlarged and often painful veins that occur most commonly on the legs. Spider veins are much smaller and are typically painless.
Our spider vein removal treatment can also remove facial veins as well as other small vascular lesions on any area of the body.
How Does Spider Vein Removal Work?
We use a laser called the Spectrum Nd:YAG laser to penetrate through the skin. The energy is readily absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin chromophores or veins and vascular lesions. The light is delivered through the skin and directly into the spider vein.
After heating, the vein walls collapse and seal shut. Finally, the sealed vein is broken down and absorbed by the body. Due to the laser's effectiveness, spider veins may disappear immediately after treatment.
What Is Spider Vein Removal Treatment Like?
Spider vein removal is a simple procedure that's minimally invasive with minimal downtime. During your treatment, your physician will use a laser to diminish the spider veins. Although you may feel some discomfort, the procedure shouldn't be painful. You may experience some mild pressure or aching due to the closure of these vessels.
After treatment, you may experience some swelling which should diminish in a few hours. You may also have some redness around the treatment area due to the heat of the laser. You can return to work and your normal activities immediately after treatment. Although you may see immediate results, final results may take up to 8 weeks to be seen.
