Vein Treatment - Laser

Women are far more likely to develop spider and varicose veins of the legs than men. Heredity is the leading risk factor for developing spider and varicose veins. Other contributing factors include aging, pregnancy and other hormonal changes such as menopause and hormone replacement therapy, obesity and working in jobs that require prolonged standing. Treatment can reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins, but there is no prevention or cure.

Visible veins of the face and legs can also be treated with a variety of laser and light treatments, including intense pulsed light (IPL), pulsed dye laser (PDL) and Nd:YAG laser. A series of laser vein treatments can significantly reduce spider veins without the use of needles, but larger vessels often require sclerotherapy.

When the weather warms, it’s time for most of us to trade our heavy winter clothes for lighter spring attire. Sun dresses and skirts, shorts, and swimsuits become the uniform of the day. But for 80 million or more Americans, mostly women, spider or varicose veins of the legs make the transition to Summer a stressful time. The good news is that simple and convenient procedures are available for the treatment of spider and varicose leg veins.
