AND SPIDER VEIN
Laser Vein Removal
The best and gold standard treatment for spider veins is laser. Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins Laser therapy has been used in the medicine for more than 30 years. Advances in technology have helped developed many different lasers. It is recognized to be successful in the treatment of spider and small varicose veins, and facial veins (telangiectasia).
The laser uses a focused beam of light. In the treatment of veins, the wavelength of light is targeted to the pigment in the blood. The laser heats up the small vein and destroys it. The laser beam is focused and does not damage the nearby skin tissue. Over a period of four to six weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears
PhotoFacial-IPL and Spider Vein Removal
For extremely small, red and thread-like spider veins, PhotoFacial-IPL is an ideal choice of treatment.
This technology is extremely safe and effective in removing veins visible on the legs, as well as the face, neck and chest – just about anywhere! Because the light energy does not cut or burn the skin, no bandages are necessary and there is less risk of bruising compared to sclerotherapy.
IPL is similar to laser in that it delivers specifically targeted light energy to the skin. Depending on the IPL settings used, the light energy is taken up by specific parts of the skin (for example only red vessels), heating them to remove them. Lasers have only one very specific wavelength of light whereas IPL has a range of wavelegths. This is often an advantage as it can treat multiple elements (eg red vessels and larger purple/red veins) at the same time. These treatments are becoming increasingly popular because there are very few side effects, and you can resume your regular activities immediately following treatment.
