The good news is that Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in Macomb County offers laser vein treatment that can get rid of spider veins for good.
In this article we answer our Macomb County patient’s questions about the best way to get rid of spider veins once and for all!
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins get their name because they look like spider webs. These visible veins can vary in color, but they are typically red or blue. They usually show up on prominent parts of the body such as the lower legs or on the face.
Where Do Spider Veins Come From?
Reticular veins, sometimes called “feeder” veins, are found in the hands, legs, and face. They allow blood to flow backwards rather than upwards toward the heart. To do this, these veins contain a one-way valve that closes after the blood has passed through it. If this valve becomes weak or damaged, blood can sometimes get backed up and cause feeder veins to malfunction. When this happens, small networks of spider veins can appear underneath the surface of the skin.
Then there are vascular lesions. These are blemishes which appear when secondary blood vessel form. This can happen when fatty tissue thickens, because of prior injuries, or due to poor circulation. Secondary vessels may show up anywhere on the body, but they can be especially unsightly in areas like the face.
It is important to note that the appearance of vascular lesions is typically not a health concerns. While they can certainly make a person feel self-consciousness, they are generally not threatening to health. However, if left untreated, they can cause permanent discoloration.
Thankfully, the elos Plus Laser Vein Treatment is available at Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in Macomb County which can help get rid of spider veins and vascular lesions.
How are Spider Veins Removed with the elos Plus Laser Vein Treatment?
The name elos stands for “electrical optical synergy”. In layperson’s terms, that just means that the laser combines cold heat and energy to safely get rid of spider veins.
First, a careful evaluation will help a skincare professional ensure that the patient is a good candidate for laser vein treatment. The elos Plus Laser will seal the veins by sending a single beam of radiofrequency light energy – coupled with a pulse of broadband laser heat energy – directly into the vein. Blood circulation will then return to reticular veins with functioning valves.
Spider veins disappear as they are absorbed by the body. The process of natural waste removal will flush them from the system.
What Makes elos Plus the Best Laser Vein Treatment for Spider Veins?
Unlike other treatments for getting rid of spider veins, elos Plus is minimally invasive, and does not use focused light energy or pulsed light, which can damage the skin.
Additionally, with elos Plus there is no need for surgery or painful injections. Treatments are performed entirely outside the body, eliminating the risk factors that comes with many other treatments for spider veins, like sclerotherapy or endoscopic laser vein treatment.
And, unlike other vein removal treatments, elos can even treat and eliminate large areas of spider veins at once! Best of all, there is no downtime following the procedure.
