Spider veins also known medically as telangiectasia are tiny purple veins near the surface of the skin that appear perpetually dilated and visible. The small capillaries commonly appear on the surface of the thighs, calves and ankles.
Spider veins may take several forms. There are typically three spider-vein patterns:
- A spiderweb shape, where veins radiate out from a central hub
- An "arborizing" pattern that resembles branches on a tree
- Thin, separate lines
The appearance of the spider veins can, in some cases, help your doctor determine whether they are part of an underlying disease.
Factors that contribute to the development of spider veins include:
- Prolonged standing or sitting
- Blunt trauma
- Sun damage
- Hormonal factors
- Weight loss (It can thin the skin, making it more transparent.)
- Exposure to certain chemicals radiation
- Autoimmune disorders such as lupus
Spider veins are typically caused by abnormal blood flow and weakening of the blood vessel wall. Any condition or activity that places pressure on the veins can contribute to their development.
Spider veins increase with age and thus are quite common in the elderly.
Laser therapy for spider veins
Using an intense beam of light to precisely target the problem area, the GentleMax Pro leaves the surrounding tissue untouched. And the GentleMax Pro Laser features a patented skin-cooling device for optimum patient comfort, safety and results.
Laser vein removal is an easy, fast, and effective way to treat superficial veins.*
It is generally recommended that the treatments be spaced four to six weeks apart. If new veins appear, additional treatments are required for optimum results.*
What to expect after the procedure?
Patients are encouraged to resume all normal activities immediately. Results may not be apparent for several months. Most patients are satisfied by the results in a very short time.*
The results of laser treatment for spider veins are not immediate. After the laser therapy, the vessels underneath the skin will gradually change from a dark blue to light red color, then eventually disappearing in two to six weeks.*
Most patients report a high degree of satisfaction with the procedure and relief at no longer having to hide unsightly veins. The treated areas are noticeably clearer and in most cases the skin continues to improve with each successive treatment.*
Most spider veins will disappear within two to four weeks.*
From two to six treatments will be needed, depending on the size and number of veins. The treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart. Those with a tendency towards vascular problems will most likely require additional treatments.*
Graduated compression stockings and/or bandages are worn over the treatment area for one to three weeks to maintain pressure on the treated veins. Most people can return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.*
You should avoid sun exposure in the treatment area for two weeks following the procedure.
