The common cause of spider veins can be genetic, exposure from the sun and general aging. Irregular fine red lines that appear in a clustered web like design can contribute to the overall red, ruddy appearance to our skin. The best option for treatment of these common skin offenders is Laser Vein Therapy.
We use the ND Yag Laser and the Intense Pulsed Light to treat spider veins. These two different well-known light systems have the outstanding ability to treat tiny superficial veins and small reticular blue leg veins by delivering a targeted amount of heat to the vein causing the vessel to collapse.
Facial veins have characteristics that make them easy to treat and suitable for these two types of light therapies. Leg veins may require more treatments and consistency with a broad spectrum light such as the Intense Pulsed Light. Depending on the number of veins present on the face or legs, a patient may need 2-4 treatments to achieve best results. Patients will see up to a 70% improvement after a few treatments are complete. The results for both vein treatments are excellent!
Laser vein treatments in Tucson are fast and virtually painless and each appointment averages 15-20 minutes, scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. Anesthesia, topical agents or pain medications are not required for this procedure. Some bruising and redness will develop. Patients can resume their regular daily activities immediately after the treatment providing they follow post care instructions.
The cost of each treatment can vary based on time. Please contact one of our skin care professionals to set up a complimentary evaluation with a registered nurse.
(If you have varicose veins, we have an excellent resource with one of our valued business partners to refer you for treatment.)
