Many Americans are bothered by the appearance of varicose and spider veins. They can infringe upon one’s aesthetic goals and cause an undue deal of self-consciousness. Rather than just accepting this, more and more people are turning to laser vein treatments. In the past, extensive surgeries were the only option available. Laser vein treatments can offer many great benefits without the various complications associated with surgeries.
Where Do Visible Leg Veins Come From?
Both varicose and spider veins can be caused by either sitting or standing for extended periods of time, as well as certain lifestyle choices, gravity, and even just genetics. These are essentially ineffectual veins, and they tend to occur most often in the legs. Veins are supposed to push blood toward the heart, but sometimes blood pools in a vein instead. This extra blood puts too much pressure on the walls of the vein. This leads to bulging, which leads to visible leg veins.
How Does Laser Vein Treatment Work?
Laser light is directed into the targeted vein, which absorbs the light energy as heat; this will cause it to disintegrate and be reabsorbed by the body. This method can disable the vein without impacting the skin. With small targets, such as spider veins, they disappear shortly after treatment. Many people find they need multiple sessions of laser vein treatment before they see the improvement they want; we can sit down with you and help you devise a treatment plan that best accommodates your specific needs and goals.
What are the Benefits of Laser Vein Treatments?
There are many reasons to choose this treatment over others currently available. Some of the highlights include:
- It is 100% non-invasive and non-surgical
- There is no downtime associated with having it done
- Smaller veins see instant results
- Most veins can be eliminated completely with enough sessions
