WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS AND VARICOSE VEINS?

Spider Veins and Varicose Veins are very superficial veins which have been damaged so that they no longer can pass blood The blood pools in these veins and may appear red, blue, or purple in color. These unsightly veins may appear as a result of a number of factors, including pregnancy, being on your feet for long periods of time, weight gain,or simply genetics.

HOW ARE SPIDER VEINS AND VARICOSE VEINS TREATED?

When a laser is used to treat the veins, results are seen gradually with each treatment, but further treatments may be recommended for effectiveness and maintenance. The laser is directed at the area of the vein, penetrating the skin. As the laser light is absorbed beneath the skin, it is converted to heat, raising the temperature of the blood vessel, and then safely coagulating the blood. This causes the vessel to seal, and eventually the body removes the damaged vein. The process may take from one to four months for complete or nearly complete clearance to occur effectively.
