Both men and women are bothered by the appearance of body and facial spider veins.
Spider veins are small unsightly red or purple vessels on the surface of the face. They are often red or blue and are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like tree branches or spider webs with their short jagged lines. Spiderveins can also be found on the legs. They can cover either a very small or very large area of skin.
The causes of spider veins on the face include prolonged exposure to the sun, increasing age, trauma, medical conditions and certain habits such as smoking or alcohol. Women tend to be affected by spider veins 2-4 times more commonly than men do, due to the fact that female hormones and pregnancies are so commonly implicated in their cause.
In the past, electrocautery has been used to treat these veins but this modality often resulted in intolerable pain and sometimes scarring. Since the advent of lasers, the NdYAG has been used for the treatment of unwanted small veins on the face and a few treatments may be require to achieve an acceptable level of improvement. We can offer you two treatment modalities for spider vein removal at Skin Renewal: the CoolGlide Excel or the light based treatment the Acutip 500 ™ used to reduce veins up to 4 mm on the face.
At Skin Renewal a highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment together with long term maintenance program is recommended. We plan our treatments carefully to ensure the best cosmetic outcome. For maximum results please ensure that the clinic you choose for vein removal uses a Class 4 medical laser.
