No matter how common spider veins may be, not many of us are excited to get them as we age. It’s true we aren’t exactly privy to the true reasons why spider veins on the legs and face appear but we know heredity, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, prolonged sun exposure, and injuries are some of the culprits. Thankfully, spider veins are rarely serious health risks but the purple, red, or blue branches that start to peek through the skin can have many patients less than excited about showing off their legs. Even though it’s still weeks away from spring and a few months from summer, the AYA™ Medical Spa providers can’t think of a better time to treat unwanted spider veins than NOW! Here’s how to make your spider veins disappear before summer:
- Sclerotherapy: This safe minimally-invasive vein removal treatment uses a “sclerosing agent” (which is a sterile saline solution) to remove unwanted spider veins found on the legs and ankles. Once the sclerosing agent is injected directly into troublesome veins, it goes to work by causing the lining of the vein to bond together and the blood to clot. As this process takes effect, patients gradually will notice the appearance of the vein fade away.
- Laser Vein Removal: Sciton® laser technology (specifically the Broadband Light™ system) harnesses the powerful benefits of heat energy that is absorbed within the hemoglobin and blood to cause the vein to visibly collapse and fade. This type of laser vein removal treatments can be used on both the face and the body (meaning even those delicate facial veins don’t stand a chance) with little to no downtime required.
- VascuTouch™: Providing a quick and effective option for vein removal, VascuTouch™ targets broken capillaries and spider veins specifically on the face using a combination of direct current and radiofrequency ablation. With comparable results to traditional laser treatments, VascuTouch™ clots the blood within the tiny spider veins to stop the blood flow without scarring, bruising, or skin discoloration.
The perks of having several minimally invasive treatments available, that actually work and can help treat unwanted veins without needing surgery, are the main reason our Atlanta vein removal patients are excited to show off their legs on the beach once again.
