The 411 on Laser Vein Treatments
Do you avoid wearing shorts or skirts because of spider veins? Well, you are not alone. Many women are embarrassed of or unhappy with the appearance of their legs due to spider veins. At Restoration Medspa, we offer Laser Vein treatments to remove those veins and help you feel confident in whatever you choose to wear!
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that often appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. Some women notice these veins at a younger age, while others do not notice them until much later in life.
Spider veins may develop due to many factors, including hereditary aspects, hormonal shifts, pregnancy, fluctuation in weight, or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing.
How is treatment done?
Laser Vein Removal treatment is done with a laser, which directs an intense beam of light at the spider vein. This destroys the vein, while leaving surrounding tissues and skin unharmed. More than one laser session may be required to obtain optimal results.
After treatment, you will notice an improvement in the appearance of your legs. However, it is important to understand that new spider veins may still develop in the future. Patients who experience the development of spider veins in the future often consider further treatment to destroy these veins.
