damaged veins visible through the skin
Spider veins are small, damaged veins that can be seen through the top layer of skin. These veins develop when very tiny valves within the veins become weak. Veins that are healthy have valves that ensure blood flows in only one direction: back to the heart. If the valves in these small veins weaken, blood may begin to flow backward and accumulate in the vein causing them to become visible and sometimes painful or irritated. Broken capillaries and spider veins are commonly found on the face or legs, though they can appear anywhere on the body. Spider veins can be caused by sun exposure, genetic components, sneezing, and several other factors.
a quick and easy procedure
The Long Pulsed Nd YAG Laser has proven to be an effective method for addressing painful and unsightly spider veins. This technology is a specialized laser system that emits a targeted wavelength of light with a long pulse duration. This laser technology can penetrate the skin deeply enough to target and coagulate the blood within the spider veins without harming the surrounding skin. The procedure is non-surgical and does not require any incisions or needles, minimizing downtime and prolonged discomfort. Typically this treatment is completed within about 20 minutes, and topical anesthetic can be used for added comfort. The Nd YAG has a proven safety record for treating spider veins on various skin types, including darker skin tones.
