As people age, veins that were once small or hidden can become pronounced. This can occur naturally because of breaks and dilation in the veins themselves and be exacerbated by a thinning of the epidermis. Vascular birthmarks can also be a cause of long running concern to a person’s mental well-being and feelings of confidence. As your premier spa for Laser Vein Treatment in Chandler, AZ, let New Image Med Spa help boost your confidence and take years off your skin.
In fact, the latest advances in laser technology have given us a method for removal that is safer, faster, and more effective than any previous treatment.
The Palomar Starlux works by emitting a specialized light that is passed through the skin and preferentially absorbed by its target, be it an unwanted hair, birthmark, tattoo or in this case, the hemoglobin (the red portion of blood) in the unwanted vessels. The light causes the vein to break up and disappear. It’s one of the easiest and least invasive ways to get spider vein treatment, ensuring you get great results while remaining as comfortable as possible.
Because spider vein treatment works by causing the unwanted vein to break up and dissolve, resolution of the unwanted vein will take place over the course of several weeks. We’ll work with you during your consultation to identify the correct number of treatments, and give you a directed estimate concerning your healing time and the associated results.
Spider veins can occur on any area of the body, but are most commonly seen on the legs and face. The exact cause of spider veins still remains unknown, but it has been shown that there is a genetic component to spider veins. While spider veins can occur in both men and women, they occur more commonly in females. It seems as if the hormones estrogen and progesterone play a role in the development of spider veins.
Changes in body chemistry such as puberty, birth control pills, menopause, and hormone therapy can bring them on. Constrictive clothing, such as tight hosiery and girdles can also cause spider vein development. The spider veins that appear on the face can also be the result of too much sun exposure.
Smaller leg veins (up to 3 mm) may respond very well to this treatment. Our doctors will take into careful consideration your specific situation during your consultation to identify the best course of treatment, and determine whether or not Laser Vein Treatment is the appropriate course of action. Sclerotherapy may be more appropriate for treating some leg veins. This can be discussed during your consultation at New Image Med Spa for Laser Vein Treatment in Chandler, AZ.
