Developing spider or varicose veins can harm more than just your physical appearance. These varicose veins can be extremely uncomfortable. C lots or open sores on your legs are among the complications that might arise from varicose veins in certain people.
Leg veins can be eliminated or diminished using minimally invasive treatment. Treatment can also help to alleviate symptoms such as pain and exhaustion, as well as prevent complications.
What causes us to have visible leg veins?
Damaged veins are the cause of varicose and spider veins. They arise due to the weakening of microscopic one-way valves within the veins. These valves only allow blood to move in one direction in healthy veins. Some blood flows backward and collects in the veins when these valves become weak and leaky. Extra blood in the vein puts a lot of pressure on the vein’s walls, causing them to become inflamed.
The vein walls become weak and bulge as a result of constant pressure. A varicose vein or a spider vein develops over time.
The development of these veins is more common in some people than others. If you have family members who have them, your chances of getting them are increased. Many individuals get them due to spending long periods sitting or standing most days of the week. The prevalence of these veins increases with age and with pregnancy.
Spider veins can be induced by various factors, including sunshine, hormone changes, and damage.
Laser treatments: Dermatologists utilize lasers to treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins, both common problems in the skin. Your dermatologist guides the laser light toward the vein being treated during a laser treatment.
You can use laser light to eliminate veins without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
Laser Vein Removal is a Good Option
Depending on their size, small spider veins may dissolve almost soon after the treatment. Spider veins and varicose veins larger in size will discolor and remain visible for 1 to 3 months before disappearing. You may require three or more treatments to achieve total clearance.
- Most patients can return to work and most of their routine activities the following day.
- Some patients will need to wear compression stockings for a short time after each treatment.
- Every patient will be required to keep the treated region out of the sun for 3 to 4 weeks after treatment—this aids in the prevention of the development of black spots. Protecting your skin from the sun on a year-round basis helps prevent the development of new spider veins and skin cancer.
RFA is a radiofrequency ablation technique that is relatively recent. Recent treatments include endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA). They frequently eliminate the need for a vein to be surgically removed.
Both therapies work by destroying the vein from the inside out. Dermatologists employ EVLT to treat spider veins and tiny varicose veins, common in the elderly. RFA is a procedure that is used to treat prominent varicose veins.
These are the events that take place throughout these treatments:
- You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area treated during the procedure. In addition, the drug causes the region to enlarge.
- Next, your dermatologist will make a small incision in the skin and introduce a laser fiber (for EVLT) or a catheter (for RFA) into the vein to treat the condition.
- Activating the laser or radiofrequency device, which warms up the vein and causes it to collapse and seal shut, is performed by your dermatologist. The heat has no negative impact on the surrounding environment.
- A pressure stocking will be placed on each leg following the treatment to reduce swelling.
- You will be observed for some time before being allowed to return home.
You must take daily walks and use the compression stockings as advised to help prevent any potential adverse effects. Compensating socks are often worn by patients between 1- and 2-weeks.
Dialaze Laser Vein Removal
Absolute Wellness and Aesthetics provide noninvasive laser vein removal procedures with Inmode’s Dialaze to reduce the appearance of blood vessels on the body and face. The clinic will discuss a personalized laser vein treatment strategy based on your specific needs and goals during your personal, private session. Learn about noninvasive laser vein removal procedures to improve the skin appearance rather than concealing or covering prominent spider veins.
These blood vessels, often known as spider veins, are rarely a medical issue, but they are aesthetic. Many people avoid wearing particular types of clothing, such as shorts or swimsuits, or use a lot of concealers to hide their veins. Patients in generally good condition, have no history of clots, and are not pregnant should choose laser vein treatments.
What Should I Expect During My Laser Vein Removal Treatment?
Inmode’s Dialaze Laser vein removal treatments take about 30-45 minutes to perform in our clinic as an outpatient procedure, varying according to the size and number of locations to be treated. You will lie pleasantly in a private treatment room while the afflicted area is cleaned during your laser vein reduction.
A topical anesthetic might be administered before your treatment if asked to alleviate any potential discomfort. The laser handpiece is moved over the treatment area in a sequence of pulses that target the veins while causing no harm to the rest of the body. The aberrant blood artery absorbs the laser light, sealing the veins’ walls. You will be able to leave our office and return to your daily schedule right away.
When can You expect to see results?
Some patients have immediate results. However, results can vary from patient to patient. During your initial appointment with our experienced laser specialist, realistic expectations will be discussed, and suggestions on how many sessions are required to achieve the best results. More spider veins will most likely emerge over time, necessitating follow–up surgeries every few years.
