WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?

Spider veins are swollen, twisted blood vessels only underneath the skin. You can get them everywhere, but they are most common in feet and legs.

Spider veins happen when the valves stop working when the vein becomes damaged. This causes the blood to pool in the veins. Blood that accumulates in varicose veins may flow into smaller blood vessels (capillaries), which expand and shape into ‘spider veins’.

HOW TO GET RID OF SPIDER VEINS?

Ways to get rid of spider veins include:

Exercise: 

Regular exercise encourages better blood flow in the legs, which helps to push along the blood which has accumulated in the veins. Exercise also can help lower an individual’s blood pressure, which can be another contributing factor to spider veins.Low-impact exercises help to acquire the calf muscles working without excessive strain.

Some low impact exercises include:

  • Swimming
  • Walking
  • Biking
  • Yoga

Compression stockings: 

A research in 2018 found that individuals who used knee-high compression stockings using a pressure of 18 to 21 mmHg for one week, reported a decline in the pain and aching related to varicose veins.

These stockings apply continuous pressure to help to move the blood back into your heart. The continuous pressure also reduces swelling in your legs and lessens the danger of obtaining a blood clot. You will still have observable leg veins, however.

Laser Spider Vein Removal

At Collins Laser we provide laser spider vein removal. This is because we think it is one of the best treatments for treating spider veins and the best permanent solution. 

Spider veins can be effectively and safely treated with laser. During laser therapy, your clinician sends the laser light in the vein. We use the award-winning Fotona Laser system to deliver a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment to remove these veins.

Our Fotona Laser can help treat your veins by passing laser light down through the skin, targeting the blood vessels and coagulating them, making them irreparable. With the vessel being beyond repair, the body breaks them down and disperses them throughout the lymphatic system.

Therefore, the laser is the perfect way to treat your spider veins. It minimizes all dilated capillaries and enhances the condition of the skin.

After every treatment, some patients will need to wear compression stockings for a brief time little spider veins may vanish immediately after therapy. Larger spider veins and varicose veins will darken, and you will probably take 1 to 3 weeks until they disappear.

FACIAL SPIDER VEIN REMOVAL

Medically termed Telangiectasia, facial spider veins, may appear most often on the chin, the lips, and nose. The vessels have been incorporated together with dilate and also the central nervous system with warmth and tension and extreme exercise. With pressure in the dilation, the vessels become feeble over the years and with age and start to clot resulting in the vascular lesions. Additional elements that could result in weakening of the lymph lining are to this sunlight damage, smoking, alcohol, obesity, and hormonal fluctuations in pre and peri-menopause ladies.

Difference between Fotona and other Laser methods to remove spider veins

Fotona laser penetrates deeper into the skin where these spider veins begin which enables the entire vessel to absorb the laser light and uniformly heat up and recede. More commercial lasers with shorter absorption depths such as IPL’s generally create a shield of coagulated blood on the upper edge of the vessel which leaves the vessel virtually unaffected and able to re-open.

Some individuals have a greater chance of creating these veins.

A lot of men and women get them since they stand or sit for extended periods most days of this week have a higher chance of getting spider veins. These veins also become more prevalent with age and when you are pregnant.

In addition, with persistent stress, the vein walls also weaken and with time form when miniature, one-way valves within the veins weaken.
