While spider veins seldom produce symptoms or other physical discomforts, they can still have a negative impact on a person’s life. Many people find that the presence of these unwanted veins causes them to lose much of their self-esteem. This alone is enough to interfere with one’s quality of life. It can be even more harmful in those situations where the individual refrains from social activity because he or she is so self-conscious about the spider veins that contact with other people is avoided. If you are struggling with the presence of spider veins or simply want to look better by getting rid of them, laser spider vein removal may be right for you.
Laser spider vein removal is among the most widely used therapies thanks to its high success rate. In addition, it does not require an overnight stay or even a visit to a hospital. The treatment is delivered right here in our office as an outpatient procedure. You will not need to schedule any time away from work or your other normal activities.
Spider veins form due to venous insufficiency in the smaller vessels, usually the capillaries. These are the blood vessels that branch out from the larger ones in order to carry blood to all parts of the body. An inadequate blood flow can cause these vessels to enlarge and become visible through the skin. They can form a pattern that can remind you of a spider web, hence their name. They also frequently have sharp and jagged turns that look like a spider’s legs.
Spider veins do not usually appear as an isolated vein. Instead, a number of veins are visible at one time. This makes their presence stand out even more. They are common on the face, chest and legs.
When you undergo laser spider vein removal, a unit will be passed across the surface of the skin that will emit laser energy as it goes. The precise nature of the laser equipment enables the energy to be directed into the targeted vein while the surrounding tissue is not harmed. The energy will heat the blood inside and the vessel itself. This will destroy the vessel. Over the next few weeks, it will disappear as your body absorbs what is left of the unwanted vein. You will then be free from the impact these vessels have had on your appearance. Your self-confidence can be restored as a result.
