Spider veins often occur in the legs, feet and ankles. They occur in branches off of larger veins and appear as a web or a sunburst design. Spider veins can be blue, purple or red. Spider veins can be seen through the skin but are not raised and palpable like most varicose veins. Women are typically more affected by spider veins than men.
The laser that we use at Quadra Health & MedSpa can effectively reduce and/or remove spider veins from most areas.
There are many factors that influence the number of treatments needed. Some spider veins will disappear during the treatment while others may require multiple treatments, one month apart, to shrink and disappear. On average you can expect a 40% improvement after 1 treatment, 60% after 2 treatments and 80% or more after the third treatment.
The laser technology can cause some localized discomfort and heating during treatment. We will apply ice packs during treatment to minimize your discomfort. Typically numbing is not required.
Initially there is redness and swelling to the treated area but this will calm down after 24-36 hours. Areas treated my scab as they heal. It normally take 3 days to a week for the symptoms of treatment to completely resolve.
We encourage you to come in for a free consultation. Everyone is different but we strive to keep our costs low and provide you with the most effective results in the shortest time possible. We have convenient spider removal packages that start as low as $100/month.
