|Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her...
We all know the rest of this nursery rhyme... But it’s not just eight legged spiders that can scare people away, real spider veins are also a very scary and common phenomenon.Spider veins are small thin blood vessels that appear on the skins surface and are usually blue or red in colour.
They are called spider veins, as these lines can usually be connected in a ‘web’ like pattern. Spider veins generally appear on the legs especially around the thighs, ankles and feet and can cover quite a large area.
Help is at hand at The Laser Lounge! We use a specialised Laser which focuses a beam of laser energy that targets the pigment in the blood. Without disrupting the skins natural surface, the heat generated from the laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel causing it to collapse and seal. In a short amount of time, the vessel will disappear and the body’s scavenging cells will remove the blood. Over a period of up to twelve weeks, the vein is reabsorbed by the body and disappears.
This time stay seated on your tuffet and scare that spider away!
