Spider Veins are extremely common, but that doesn’t make them any less unappealing. They are so common in fact, that researchers found in a group of people looked at that 84% had spider veins or telangiectasia somewhere on their body.
In some people, spider veins - those small bunches of those purple, red or blue veins often appear on legs and ankles and make it difficult to wear shorts, sundresses and bathing suits with confidence. They are classified as dilated superficial blood vessels, like varicose veins, but smaller and closer to the skin and they can appear anywhere on the body.
At Caddell’s Laser Clinic we have safe and effective treatments to reduce unsightly spider veins regardless of where they are on your body.
Spider Vein Causes and Treatment
There are a number of factors that can cause the development of spider veins in the legs, including:
While Spider Veins don’t normally cause medical issues, they are unappealing and can be removed with laser treatments. Treating Spider Veins is mainly a cosmetic issue, however if you are unhappy with the way they look or if they are painful then there’s an effective and safe treatment available with Laser Treatments.
Laser Vein Therapy
During treatment, light energy is delivered through a special laser hand piece to the targeted vein. In a series of brief pulses, the light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, but not the surrounding tissue. This heat absorption causes a coagulation of the blood vessel, which is subsequently absorbed by your body.
It may take several treatments to have an effect. The staff at Caddell's are individually trained in removing broken capillaries and have the knowledge of the lasers to help them accomplish the removal of a broken capillary in as few treatments as possible.
