Spider veins are caused by increased pressure in the veins. A tendency to get them is believed to be hereditary, and that they’re more common as you get older.
It’s also known that people who stand for a long time, such as nurses, hairdressers and teachers etc, tend to increase the amount of pressure in the veins of the legs and are more likely to develop spider veins.
As Skin and Laser Technicians who stand on our feet all day treating clients, we understand what it’s like to have skin concerns such as spider veins.
In fact, we've treated thousands of clients for unwanted spider veins.
Most commonly, spider veins are treated on a client’s back of knees and/or thighs.
What we love most is that our medical grade laser apparatus reduces spider veins instantly. That’s right, you see results straight away!
Spider veins get their name from the web of red or blue veins that often start to spread across your legs as you age. They’re dilated superficial blood vessels like varicose veins, but smaller and closer to the skin. Spider veins are often in areas behind the knees or thighs but they can appear anywhere on the body.
In addition to the appearance of a patchwork of red and blue veins that you can see through the skin, people with spider veins may also experience swelling in the legs, a feeling of heaviness in the legs and tiredness in the legs.
Most clients seeking treatment for spider veins are looking to clear and smooth their skin.
At The Laser Lounge we use a medical grade laser to reduce spider veins. The laser’s focused beam of energy 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 veins are reabsorbed by the body and disappear.
