what causes spider veins?
Varicose veins and spider veins may occur with aging as veins begin to lose elasticity. Instead of the blood returning back towards the heart, the blood begins to move backwards and pool in the veins. The blue vein color results because these veins are carrying deoxygenated blood that has not yet circulated through the lungs.
In addition, some women may develop varicose veins during pregnancy Secondary to Circulatory changes and uterus placing even more pressure onto the veins in the legs.
Other reasons include Obesity, Prolonged Standing and Family History.
ND: Yag Laser
Laser to treat spider veins is becoming more popular since it is a completely noninvasive treatment. The laser light passes through the skin and is absorbed by the “red” color of hemoglobin. The absorption causes the vein to heat up very quickly, resulting in coagulation of the blood fluid in the vein. Successive treatments are usually required for full resolution. The vein is then absorbed by the body and the blood path is diverted to deeper veins.
Is the treatment painful?
Laser treatment is quite comfortable.Most patients will find it well tolerated with no need for numbing. Other treatments may be more comfortable with certain anesthetic techniques.
Will it be necessary to wear compression stockings after treatment?
Depending on the procedure, you may or may not need to wear compression stockings. If required, they usually are only necessary for a few days. With laser, typically you won’t need them.
Will it require more than one treatment?
You should plan on several sessions for both laser and sclerotherapy. With some treatments,you might see results immediately. Others may take more time. Again, at PrimeAesthetica we will explain all the expectations associated with the recommended treatment.
