What Causes Spider Veins?
Also known as varicose veins, spider veins are purple- and red-colored superficial capillaries primarily seen on the legs and face. Spider veins are typically caused by:
- Weight gain
- Trauma to the skin
- Hormonal changes
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Sun exposure and damage
Many times, the exact cause of spider veins is not known. While both men and women of any age can develop these damaged capillaries, they become more numerous with time and are most commonly seen among people over 30.
At Metro Laser in Philadelphia, we use advanced, efficient laser therapy to treat spider veins on your face and body gently and effectively, revealing clear skin and giving you a boost in confidence.
How Does Laser Spider Vein Removal Work?
Our laser is specially designed to detect the pigment in your blood—specifically, the colored hemoglobin in your red blood cells. By detecting these red and purple pigments, the laser sends targeted heat to destroy the formation of the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) just under the skin. It also stimulates the formation of two proteins, collagen and elastin, which allow the skin to heal and regrow. By only targeting the red and purple discolorations, the laser can safely bypass other skin and hair cells, leaving them unaffected.
While you will see an immediate improvement in your spider veins following your laser removal, many people need a series of treatments to fade their veins away completely. For optimal results, we recommend many patients get a series of three removal treatments although this number may vary from person to person.
Administered by our highly skilled and certified estheticians, laser spider vein treatment in Philadelphia usually takes about an hour. We perform all our treatments with your health, safety, and comfort in mind. Following your laser service, we advise walking and moving your legs regularly to ensure adequate blood flow and circulation.
What Do Laser Vein Treatments Work On?
Laser vein treatment can be used to help treat:
- Facial and Leg Veins
- Spider Veins
- Broken Capillaries
The location and severity of the visible veins may dictate how many treatments are necessary. Your esthetician at Metro Laser will be able to talk to you about what to expect with this treatment.
Is Laser Vein Removal Permanent?
Yes! Laser vein removal permanently fades any treated spider veins on your face and body. However, you may develop more spider veins in the future, due to age, genetics, or any of the other factors listed above. Should that happen, those can also be treated.
Other Laser Treatments We Offer
In addition to laser spider vein removal, we also provide laser treatments for a number of other skin concerns, including removing unwanted hair, resurfacing skin, fading the signs of aging, and tightening loose skin.
