Varicose veins are large, twisted blood vessels that affect a great many people, particularly the elderly or overweight. Spider veins are smaller varicose veins that may appear below the surface of the skin with a red or bluish color. Although spider veins are usually completely harmless, most people consider them to be unattractive and would like them to be removed. If you are looking for treatment options for your spider veins, you should consider laser therapy for spider veins treatment. This procedure has helped many people to eliminate these undesirable veins.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are abnormal blood vessels that often appear on the face or legs. Normal veins transport deoxygenated blood from various parts of the body back to the heart. They have one-way valves that control the flow of blood throughout them. These abnormal veins have faulty valves that allow blood to flow back into them instead of to the heart. This gives them their characteristic distorted appearance.
If you have unwanted veins that you would like to get rid of, you should consider undergoing laser therapy for spider veins treatment. This non-invasive procedure involves the use of targeted laser energy to destroy problem veins, leading to their collapse and eventual disappearance.
If we feel that you are a good candidate for a procedure, you will be given a simple test to determine how the valves in your veins are functioning. From there, during the actual procedure, we can use carefully controlled laser energy to affect the vein in such a way that it gradually disappears from view.
This is considered to be a very safe and effective procedure, oftentimes leading to excellent results with only one treatment. However, a series of sessions may be required in order to achieve the best results. It all depends on the unique situation.
