The harnessing of powerful and precise laser light beams to treat skin abnormalities constitutes one of the most important advances in cosmetic science.
Spider Vein Therapy
Spider veins get their name from their resemblance to arachnids’ long, spindly legs. These unsightly and sometimes painful branched capillaries appear mostly in the legs and thighs, and are increasingly present as an individual ages. Because of their dark appearance, they are quite difficult to conceal and may cause social discomfort or embarrassment. Common risk factors for spider veins are genetics, standing for long periods of time, and hormonal changes. Laser therapy is among the most successful and popular methods of treating spider veins and has been in use for over three decades.
During the procedure, beams of focused energy are directed at the veins, obliterating their pigment while preserving the integrity of surrounding skin tissue. In time, the entire vein is reabsorbed into the body, leaving the surface skin beautifully smooth and attractive.
The spider vein laser procedure takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes per session, with 2-5 being the average number of treatments needed to see significant improvement. Treatment is virtually pain-free and requires no downtime.
