What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are blood vessels that are visible just under the skin. Spider veins can be blue, red, or purple. They may be individual veins, or they may present in clusters, which resemble a spider web. In most cases, spider veins.

Are Spider Veins Dangerous?

In most cases, spider veins are not dangerous. However, most patients find them unsightly and may even become self-conscious and not want to wear shorts, skirts, or dresses. If you think your spider veins are due to an underlying medical condition, be sure to speak to your family physician. In rare cases, spider veins may be a precursor to chronic venous insufficiency.

What Is the Difference Between Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?

Spider veins and varicose veins are not the same. Spider veins are broken capillaries, whereas varicose veins are actually damaged veins that bulge through the skin. They may have a ropey appearance and if left untreated, possibly burst.

What Causes Spider Veins?

  • Spider veins can occur for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Family history: If you have a family history of spider veins, you are more likely to develop them as well.
  • Hormonal changes: Hormonal changes due to pregnancy and menopause can also cause spider veins.
  • Age: As you get older, your blood vessels may begin to weaken spider veins can develop.
  • Prolonged periods of sitting or standing: Jobs that require extended periods of sitting or standing can also cause spider veins.

What Treatments Are Available?

While there are a variety of ways to treat spider veins, laser therapy offers excellent results with little to no downtime. The Fotana Dynamis laser effectively treats spider veins with targeted laser energy. Fotona Dynamis treatment can be tailored to precisely deliver just enough heated energy to shrink spider veins from the inside out. In addition, the laser can be set at different wavelengths to treat the truncal veins, which lead to spider veins as well.

Is it painful?

Not at all! We pair our treatments with numbing cream, ensuring you experience no discomfort.

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments needed depends largely on the size of the problematic area. Most clients are fully treated and satisfied after 2 to 6 treatments.

How safe is laser treatment?

Laser treatments are much more safe and convenient than alternatives methods. Studies have found that there is no long-term damage. It is normal to experience temporary bruising or redness in the area after treatment, but this dissipates quickly.
