If the first thing you see when you look in the mirror is the presence of facial spider veins, it may be time to consider having them treated. While they rarely cause any physical discomforts or threats to your health, they can do a lot of damage to a person’s self-esteem. Many people with the condition are constantly wondering what thoughts go through other people’s minds during a face-to-face conversation.
If you are one of those who wonders if others have trouble seeing you for who you are because of the presence of spider veins, you should have them treated. Laser spider vein treatment is one of the best ways to do this.
Spider veins develop when the capillaries near the surface of the skin become enlarged or broken. This causes them to become visible. Very seldom does an isolated spider vein develop. Instead, they appear in groups of veins that are intertwined together in what resembles a web. This makes them much more obvious than an isolated vein would be.
Spider veins are often red when they become visible through the skin. They can also be blue or purple. Whatever the color, most people view them as unattractive. This is why people undergo treatments to remove them. While a variety of treatment methods are available, laser spider vein treatment is one of the most widely used.
Laser treatments are done with the use of a device that focuses highly concentrated light pulses onto the skin where the spider veins are located. The technology built into these machines allows the energy to target the veins without destroying the skin. As a result, the treatments do not require any time off for recovery. In addition, they can be given in the comfort of our office without the need for a hospital stay.
When laser spider vein treatment is used, it is the heat generated by the laser energy that does the work. It safely destroys the targeted vessels. They start to disappear from sight as the body absorbs what is left of the veins over the following weeks and months.
