One of the most common skin conditions that can appear on the face and legs is spider veins. Also known medically as telangiectasias, spider veins are caused by the body’s inability to regulate blood flow through blood vessels and can appear as purple, red, or blue branches on skin. Aging is only one of the causing factors for spider veins along with sun exposure, pregnancy, genetics, and weight fluctuation. AYA Medical Spa offers popular, minimally invasive spider vein removal treatment with laser skin therapy for patients looking to reduce the appearance of spider veins.
In addition to laser hair removal and laser skin resurfacing, our versatile Sciton® Broadband Light™ and eMax™ with elōs™ laser technologies can also treat spider veins. The Sciton® Broadband Light™ laser directs heat energy that is safely absorbed in blood cells, causing the visible vein to collapse, seal, and fade. The eMax™ with elōs™ system combines laser and radiofrequency energy to treat affected veins so they can be safely absorbed by the immune system. Laser vein removal can be performed on both the body and delicate skin of the face.
These treatments are minimally invasive and can help remove unwanted veins in the legs and ankles without surgery or extended downtime. However, multiple treatments may be necessary to fully remove veins’ visibility. The legs and ankles are common areas because blood must travel farther away from the heart and against gravity to circulate flow.
Spider vein treatments provide long lasting results, but it does not prevent new visible veins from forming.
