Named for their resemblance to a spiderweb, spider veins are clusters of dilated blood vessels. Usually red, blue, or purple, they develop near the surface of the skin.
Heredity, pregnancy, obesity, trauma, aging, sun damage, and hormones are all thought to contribute to the development of spider veins, although precisely what causes them isn’t known. Most frequently appearing on the legs, spider veins can occur anywhere on the body.
The ICON laser can treat spider and reticular veins effectively and without damage to the surrounding tissue. Laser light targets and constricts the blood vessels in the legs that are the cause of spider veins, making them less visible at the skin surface. At Pryor Health in Rockford laser vein treatment sessions can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
The NeoLTS laser can be a highly effective procedure when it comes to rejuvenating the skin and treating spider veins. With little to no risk of side effects, each treatment session is quick and virtually painless. When used for skin rejuvenation, each wavelength of light is beneficial to the healing process in a unique, specialized way. During your NeoLTS treatment, blue, red, and infrared wavelengths of light are directed at the treatment area in pulsing patterns.
Thanks to significant advancements in aesthetic laser technology, it’s now possible to reduce spider veins and reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. With CO2 laser skin resurfacing, we can turn back the clock and smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce sun damage, and improve your skin’s elasticity.
The radiofrequency energy is emitted beneath the surface, heating underlying tissues to a controlled temperature, as the Infini device is moved over the skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen to add structure and strength to the skin by coagulating existing collagen fibers.
Following the development of the pulsed dye laser to treat blood vessels, further research led to the development of new laser systems for skin treatments. We are pleased to offer our clients treatments using the Alex TriVantage Laser, which can tackle a number of aesthetic skin issues including spider veins.
Varicose veins are enlarged or even bulging, unlike threadlike spiders. When the one-way valves inside blood vessels become weak or damaged varicose veins develop. This causes the blood to flow backward and collect, causing the vessels to swell and bulge out.
