Spider veins and reticular (blue) veins in your legs become more common as you get older, and heredity is a factor. Additionally, if you stand for many hours a day at your job, the increased pressure can lead to the appearance of leg veins.
Spider veins are the result of this added pressure in your veins, and appear as a web of fine lines close to the surface of your skin. They’re common behind your knees, but can occur anywhere.
Spider veins are a cosmetic issue that responds well to laser treatments. The team at PerfectSK uses the Cynosure laser system to treat leg veins noninvasively so you can get back to your daily activities with minimal interruption. Typically, a Cynosure laser leg vein removal treatment takes just 30 minutes or less.
During a laser leg vein removal treatment session, your provider precisely directs laser energy to visible leg veins. Your veins absorb the laser energy and are destroyed without harming the surrounding skin. Over time, your body eliminates the destroyed blood vessels and they disappear so all you’re left with is smoother, younger-looking skin.
You can expect minimal discomfort during your laser treatment and no downtime after the procedure. The laser energy penetrates below the surface of your skin to the affected veins and works well on all skin types. Your treatment is fast, easy, and highly effective for spider veins that are close to the surface of your skin.
The laser is typically well-tolerated, and feels like the snapping of a rubber band. If you’re concerned about discomfort, you can request a topical numbing cream beforehand, but overall, a Cynosure laser treatment is a comfortable procedure.
You may notice results after your first treatment, but most men and women need a series of treatments to make the veins completely disappear. The PerfectSK team works with you to determine how many treatments you need depending on your particular veins and skin. Although there’s no guarantee that other spider veins may appear in the future, laser leg vein removal treatments offer long-lasting results in the treated area.
