As we age, our skin looses laxity and becomes thinner and more transparent. In addition, those unsightly blue, red and purple spider veins form and become visible in various body areas, most commonly in the legs. Spider veins are the physical result of increased pressure to the veins resulting from abnormal blood flow and have a number of causes including poor circulation, weight gain, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, and lack of activity.
Both men and women may develop spider veins, although they are more common in females. And in addition to the self-consciousness that results from visible spider veins, some men and women may find relief from cramping, burning, restless legs, and other physical symptoms with spider veins removal.
Sclerotherapy treats spider veins by a method of injection. A glycerin and lidocaine sclerosing solution is injected into the veins, irritating the vein linings and causing them to fade or disappear entirely. Visit our Sclerotherapy section for more information.
Laser therapy treats spider veins with the help of our advanced GentleYAGT Laser. GentleYAG delivers amazing results in comfort by combining a long light wavelength with a special cooling system in a noninvasive format.
Treat spider veins on the thighs, face, ankles, and calves with state-of-the-art laser therapy or sclerotherapy!
Both sclerotherapy and laser treatment offer distinct advantages. You will see a gradual minimization of the appearance of your spider veins with each treatment session. Depending on your unique needs and the severity of your spider veins, Dr. Huynh may recommend one or a combination of both types of treatment for optimal results. Schedule your spider vein removal consultation today.
Spider vein treatment is a permanent solution; however, it won’t stop new spider veins from forming. You can lower your risk of developing spider veins by getting enough exercise, maintaining an ideal weight, and controlling hormone fluctuations with medication.
