Many people feel serious insecurity and uncertainty about their body when purple or blue spider veins are visible. From refusing to wear a swimsuit or shorts, or show bare legs, embarrassment about spider veins can have a negative impact on your state of mind and quality of life. For many, these veins represent aging and a loss of youthfulness; despite healthy eating, skin care and exercise, the veins remain visible on the skin. With this treatment, you can regain your confidence and the youthful appearance and glow of your skin, safely and effectively. Laser vein removal can have a significant impact on how you feel about yourself, your body and the clothes that you wear.
Laser Vein Treatment: How it Works
This treatment is so successful that it is one of the most commonly requested aesthetic medical procedures. Laser vein removal uses a laser with high-intensity targeted treatment in order to reach into the deeper layers that make up your skin. The unwanted pigmentation caused by spider veins is removed when the laser’s beam is absorbed by the melanin in your skin. It breaks up the unwanted pigmentation and allows your body to clear out this naturally. When you have laser vein removal treatment, you’ll walk away with healthy skin, reduced redness, and an end to your discomfort with your skin’s appearance. This procedure leaves behind no scarring, damage or visible impact: just clear, smooth, and youthful skin.
This treatment reduces the size of the spider veins and leads to their disappearance altogether over multiple treatments and the passage of times. Even deep leg veins can be treated with laser vein removal; their color will fade and their size shrink in only a few laser treatments. The treatment is fast and effective. It’s quick to receive the laser treatment and you’ll start to see the results you’re looking for right away.
Is Laser Vein Removal Right for You?
Laser vein removal is painless. It works well with skin of many types, even if you have sensitive skin. This procedure can be used to treat:
- Leg veins
- Venous lakes
- Blue facial veins
It is important to note that laser vein treatment may not be effective or appropriate for some skin tones; your medical professional can assess your skin during a consultation.
All About Spider and Varicose Veins
Understanding more about these veins will better help you to understand and prepare for treatment. Varicose veins are larger and most frequently develop in the legs. They are visible due to the raising and swelling of the blood vessels that is visible through the skin. On the other hand, spider veins are smaller and are visible on the skin with red, purple and blue pigmentation.
Risk factors for the development of spider and varicose veins include the following:
- Overweight or obesity
- Genetic factors
- Hormonal changes caused by menopause or pregnancy
- Past blood clots
- Birth control pill usage or hormone replacement therapy
- Long periods of sitting or standing still, for example in your employment
Every person’s body and skin are different and these risk factors may not apply to you. However, laser vein removal can still help you to improve your self-image and appearance regardless of the reasons these veins have appeared.
After Your Laser Vein Removal Procedure
Your total procedure will last only 30 minutes, for the first and any required subsequent sessions. Because this treatment is so gentle, safe, and non-invasive, you won’t need any downtime after your laser vein removal procedure. You can resume your normal activities immediately and even go back to work for the day. Some people may experience mild bruising and swelling, but this will subside gradually and should not be at a level that interferes with daily life. However, in order to ensure the best and longest-lasting results, it is best to avoid sun exposure and strenuous physical activity for the time immediately following your treatment.
You’ll also leave your treatment with guidelines to prevent the recurrence of visible veins in the future. We’ll advise you about routine exercise, weight control, and how you can deal with an employment situation that requires large amounts of sitting or standing. Refraining from crossing your legs can also help you reduce the chance for varicose or spider veins to reappear.
