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. Spider veins 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 required 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 a 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.

Review -Great Therapist
Reviewed on 28 June 2018 by Gabrielle Schraader

My therapist is an outstanding therapist. She is gentle, professional, highly knowledgable and passionate about what she does. I look forward to my monthly treatments and feel each month is treated as a specific focussed treatment as apposed to a routine schedule. She is a lovely presence throughout the hour I am there and feel she really is the most experienced therapist.

I came in so exhausted from my hectic lifestyle. The treatment was so relaxing and good for my state of mind. I feel so refreshed. It is like I have a completely new body. I enjoyed the scrub, wrap and massage. Overall, the experience was amazing. I will make time to at least come in once a month. Esther is brilliant. I love how she connects with my body and give me the best treatments. Thank you.

Only intoxicating experience with Sharon, not only very knowledgeable on the best products for my skin, but advice amazingly sound and delivered in a manner that was great. The facial experience was awesome and my skin just feels bright and healthy. Wish I had met her decades ago and that your branch was down the road. This will be my permanent spot.

Ps : my hope restored for improvement on my pigmentation and overall skin health.

Thank you very much.
