Spider veins, also known as telangiectasia or varicose veins, are small, thin and twisted blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. They are red, blue or purple in color and are usually found on the face, legs and ankles. Spider veins can be unsightly and can sometimes cause discomfort, such as itching, burning or aching.
Fortunately, Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, offers a non-invasive and effective treatment option available to remove them: Laser Spider Vein Therapy.
What Is Laser Spider Vein Therapy?
Laser spider vein therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses a laser to target and destroy spider veins. The laser emits a focused beam of light that penetrates the skin and heats the blood vessels, causing them to collapse and shrink. Over time, the veins are absorbed by the body and disappear, leaving the skin clear and smooth.
How Does Laser Spider Vein Therapy Work?
During the treatment, the laser technician will use a handheld device to deliver the laser energy to the affected area. The laser beam is absorbed by the hemoglobin in the blood vessels, which causes the vessel walls to heat up and collapse. The body then naturally absorbs the destroyed veins, and they disappear over time.
Laser spider vein therapy is a safe and effective treatment we perform in our Atlanta clinic. The procedure usually takes less than an hour, depending on the size and number of veins being treated. Most patients require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Spider Vein Therapy?
Laser spider vein therapy is an excellent option for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive and effective way to remove spider veins. The treatment is safe for most skin types and colors and can be performed on the face, legs and other areas of the body. However, laser therapy is not recommended for pregnant women, individuals with certain medical conditions or those taking certain medications.
Dr. Ben Stong and his team will meet with you and perform an evaluation to determine if you are a good candidate for varicose vein laser treatments.
