Learning about Spider Vein Removal...
Spider veins are more prevalent in women than men; however men still experience this condition. Women are known to experience spider veins more frequently due to acquiring oral contraceptives and issues relating to pregnancy and/or obesity.
On the other hand, men who spend ample time outdoors have been found to be more susceptible to spider vein problems. Generally these red, blue or purple visible veins are found on the thighs, lower legs and even on the face.
No body likes spiders, and for many spider veins are wanted to be removed for either aesthetic reasons and/ or discomfort caused from cramps or swelling. If you suffer from poor blood circulation, you’re more prone to experiencing this condition, and recommended to treat the area/s at first sight for preventative measures.
At The Laser Lounge we treat Spider Vein Removal with our Candela Gentle Yag Laser. These treatments are fast, effective and affordable.
The laser uses a focused beam of energy, which 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. Over a few weeks, the vessels begin to reduce, and the body’s scavenging cells remove the blood. Over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, the vein/s are reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
Personalised treatment advice is provided to all The Laser Lounge clients. Wearing support hose (preferred and trusted supplier; JOBST), frequent elevation of the legs, along with maintaining a healthy weight can facilitate healing faster. Post treatment restrictions may vary from client to client.
It can be said that it is safer to treat the area where you experience spider veins as opposed to just ignoring the concern over the long run. Spider vein removal treatments are delicate, and require confident and more experienced Skin and Laser Technician’s such as those at The Laser Lounge, in order to achieve safer and more effective outcomes.
The reduction of existing spider veins can dramatically improve the overall appearance of the affected area. In saying this, depending on lifestyle, nuisance spider veins can reappear, thus maintenance treatments are highly recommended to beat recurring and new spider veins from developing.
Spider veins have affected my life for years! I’v been so conscious it’s stopped me from wearing shorts and skirts which seems silly when it was so easily treated. After having the leg vein treatment I could see instantly the difference in how they looked, and the pain was much less than having to go through injections. I am so happy with the result and feel alot more confident showing my legs.”
After having my first baby, my legs looked terrible and the area where my veins were when touched were very sore! After having a spider vein treatment at The Laser Lounge, my veins have now gone, and the areas aren’t painful. I’m also more confident wearing shorts outside the house. Thank you.
