Spider Vein Treatment in Crofton

It is estimated that about a third of American women suffer from spider veins – the red, blue, purple veins that branch out like spider legs immediately below the skin surface. These highly visible veins are most commonly found on the face but can also develop on the thighs, calves, and ankles.

How are Spider Veins Reduced using the Clarity Laser?

During your consultation at Effective MedSpa and Wellness Center, our experienced medical teamwill examine your legs and determine the underlying cause of your spider veins. This condition can develop as a result of several factors, including:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Gender
  • Activity level or occupation
  • Other contributing factors such as aging, obesity or injury

Based on your individual condition, our medical team will determine the best course of treatment for the optimal result of reducing your spider veins. If there is an underlying medical condition causing your spider veins, another treatment alternative or a referral to a vein specialist may be suggested.

When using the Clarity for vein treatment, this dual-wavelength laser targets affected veins without damaging surrounding skin or tissues, gently heating spider veins to a controlled temperature.

Once the spider veins are heated, the treated area usually darkens, but then fades from blue and purple to light red and eventually disappears.

Is There Any Recovery?

The appearance of bulging vessels or inflammation will disappear a few hours after treatment, and although the spider veins will be minimized by the body on their own, patients should avoid taking any medications containing Aspirin® and use proper precautions while in the sun.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Men and women who have a tendency toward vascular problems will most likely require additional treatments, and any new spider veins that develop can be treated with an additional one to three laser spider vein treatments scheduled about six weeks apart.

Can I Prevent Spider Veins?

Also known as Telangiectasias, spider veins develop when blood is not pumped correctly through an area of the body and ends up pooling inside of the vein. While spider veins can develop on anyone, there are factors that can affect your blood circulation and put you at a higher risk such as:

  • Prolonged sitting or standing
  • Wearing tight socks and knee-high nylons
  • Wearing high-heeled shoes
  • Crossing your legs for long periods of time
  • Excessive salt consumption
