Spider veins are thread-like, purple or red veins that appear on the surface of the skin. Usually considered harmless, spider veins rarely show any symptoms but can be unsightly to look at.
Possible Causes For Spider Veins
Spider veins commonly emerge on the face around the nose, cheeks, neckline, and legs. These veins are the end result of abnormal vein circulation, which can be caused by smoking, alcohol consumption, aging, obesity, smoking, trauma and hereditary reasons. In addition to this, individuals on the long-term application of corticosteroids, people that work in occupations that require them to stand for long hours as well as the ones undergoing hormone replacement therapy or on contraceptive pills can develop spider veins. Moreover, with added exposure to sun or heat, these veins only become all the more visible.
Treatment For Spider Veins
Spider veins are not a considered a serious health concern but can be considered unsightly, which is one of the prime reasons why many seek cosmetic treatment. One such treatment, Laser Genesis, is a safe and gentle treatment for spider vein removal.
The laser treatment causes the blood to coagulate which in turn destroys the vessels that are then absorbed by the body eventually. Laser Genesis warms the upper layer of skin, causing the redness to diffuse and ultimately the spider veins to reduce. This results in healthier skin that has a fresh, youthful appearance. Moreover, the treatment is non-ablative, which means that it does not wound the skin, but stimulates collagen growth. In fact, many patients find the treatment to be almost calming and therapeutic. There is no downtime after the treatment and you can return to your day-to-day activities as per usual. Within a time span of 2-6 weeks, you will notice the definite improvement in the appearance of your skin.
