Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are tiny red, purplish or bluish vessels appearing just under the surface of the skin. These unsightly veins are a common concern for both men and women alike. They may appear anywhere on the body, including your face, hands, arms or legs.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Although not a medical issue, many men and women choose to have spider vein treatments at OBI BioAesthetic Institute for cosmetic purposes. When blood pools in a localized area due to vascular weakness, spider veins can develop. While anyone may have spider veins, they tend to be more common among women. They are also more likely to develop with age. Certain factors such as excess weight, sun damage and prolonged sitting or standing increase the chance of getting spider veins. A family history of spider veins also increases your likelihood of developing them.
Effective Spider Vein Treatments
One of the most effective treatments for spider veins is the use of Intense Pulsed Light Therapy or IPL®. This procedure is completely non-invasive with no downtime. Pulses of high-intensity light energy are administered to the treatment area, destroying the damaged blood vessels.
Sclerotherapy is another highly effective treatment for spider veins that helps to rejuvenate the legs. This simple, non-surgical procedure involves injecting a chemical irritant into the vein that leads to the disappearing of red and blue veins. This injection blocks blood flow and causes the vein to eventually fade away. There is no downtime with sclerotherapy, and results will become visible over the following weeks.
After receiving treatment for spider veins, we will suggest ways to prevent new spider veins from developing to ensure your results last.
