Various techniques such as pulse light laser, sclerotherapy, and 1064 laser will fade the red or purple blood vessels and smaller capillaries on the face and legs. All are available in our office.
Leg Spider veins, known medically as telangiectasia, are dilated skin capillaries. While they may be red (arterial capillaries) or blue (venous capillaries), most people have both types.
Varicose veins can occur when blood fills the veins without emptying properly due to problems with the valves (which normally keep the blood moving up towards the heart) or from vein wall stretching. Heredity, hormones, pregnancy, heavy lifting, thigh/leg injury can cause these abnormalities. Leg fatigue, aching, cramping, burning, or pain can occur. The size of the veins does not correlate with the problem severity. Discussion with our providers will determine you best therapy.
Results of the treatment cannot be guaranteed, but most patients are very pleased with the cosmetic improvement. Approximately a small percentage of our patients who undergo all of our treatment options have poor results, meaning the veins have not significantly improved after 6 treatments.
