During laser therapy, a controlled pulses of light is directed to the spider veins. The laser transmits photons that are absorbed by the blood cells in the veins, which generates heat that destroys the blood vessel. The damaged veins ultimately collapse and are re-absorbed by the body. Laser light can destroy the vein without damaging your skin. Through a combined treatment program of sclerotherapy and laser therapy, the deep-colored veins that were once unpleasant will fade in appearance, and the symptoms of discomfort will fade.
Sometimes referred to as ‘blue veins’, reticular veins occur below the skin in common areas including the inner thighs back of the legs and around the ankles. Reticular veins can form in a cluster and may cause symptoms of pain or discomfort. These veins, since below the surface, may only be seen with a vein light. Reticular veins may function as ‘feeder veins’ causing the formation of spider veins, so diagnosis is important prior to treating spider veins.
Telangiectasias (spider veins)
Spider veins are small, thin veins that lie close to the skin. These veins form clusters that can be red, blue or purple in color appearing most often on thighs, calves, and ankles. It is possible for the appearance of veins to be accompanied by aching, burning, swelling and night cramps. Spider veins can result from heredity, medication, weight gain, prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy, and other hormonal shifts.
During this treatment, the doctor injects the veins with a sclerosing solution that scars and closes those veins, causing the blood to reroute through healthier veins which improve circulation. The vein is absorbed into surrounding tissues as it closes and it fades in appearance. Treatment programs depend on the number and intensity of the veins. Multiple treatments are required to achieve optimal results. Our sclerosing agent is painless and injected in a ‘foam’ form, which has been clinically shown to optimize results.
