Spider veins are small blue, red, and purple intertwined veins that are easily visible through the skin. They are generally visible on the legs and the face. Both men and women, who otherwise may have perfectly flawless skin, might be victims to these unsightly twisted veins under the skin.
What causes spider veins?
There are many causes and conditions that lead to spider veins, some of them being heredity, hormonal influences, obesity, occupations that involve long hours of standing, amongst others. But the good news is that it is treatable and people suffering from spider veins have a perfectly good chance of recovering from it.
Spider vein removal treatment
The spider vein removal treatment is a non-invasive procedure. It constitutes of pulses of laser emissions to the affected veins which are absorbed by the red blood cells in them. The heat from the laser then causes the affected veins to close, making them disappear from the surface of the skin. The treatment may have some side-effects that might include redness, itching, and swelling and may differ from person to person. The doctor administering the treatment will be able to give medications, if necessary, to keep the side-effects in check. After the treatment the spider veins may fade or disappear completely. Sometimes they do reappear after several months, but it mostly depends on the severity of the condition and other issues relating to the patient’s medical history.
A revolutionary treatment to get rid of spider veins
Some clinics and medical spas like the Rejuvenate Medical Spa in Encino, CA are now using a technology known as the Sciton Profile. Sciton Profile is the leading spider vein removal laser machine available in the market today. It provides safe, gentle, and fast treatment and the results can be seen in as little as two sessions. The built-in cooling mechanism in the Sciton profile makes sure that no anaesthetics are required for the treatment. Since the treatment is non-invasive, fast, and painless there is no downtime to it. One can undergo the treatment and leave for home or return to work immediately. A brief consultation with Dr. Bijan Farah, MD of the Rejuvenate Medical Spa will give one an idea of the number of treatments that are required in their case.
What to expect while undergoing a Sciton Profile laser treatment
Like in any other laser treatment, the patient receives protective goggles to protect the eyes from the laser pulses. During the procedure one might feel a warming sensation in the area where the treatment is being administered. The warming sensation should not raise much concern as the cooling mechanism in the Sciton profile takes care of it. There might be some visible redness immediately after the treatment which subsides within an hour or so.
