A technologically advanced and innovative way to promote vibrant skin, Laser Genesis is able to deliver pulses of heat to the skin’s upper dermis level in order to stimulate and renew collagen to treat large skin pores, fine lines, and the overall tone and texture of skin. Even more, the generated heat also works to break down dilated capillaries in order to diminish redness linked to rosacea or spider veins (telangiectasia).
Treating spider veins with a laser works by transmitting intense bursts of light directly into the vein to make it gradually fade and disappear. In other words, no needles or incisions are necessary.
What are Spider and Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are considerably large-sized, swollen, raised blood vessels that sometimes twist and generally develop within the legs and are visible through the skin. Spider veins, on the other hand, are much smaller, blue, purple, or red blood vessels that sometimes twist. They are most often seen on the legs and/or face.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins are caused by irregular blood flow. This makes the walls of blood vessels start to weaken. Any activity or condition that puts pressure on these veins, such as prolonged standing, sitting, or weight gain, can cause them to develop. Spider veins tend to increase as people age and are more commonly seen in older adults. Since spider veins often run in families, so there is a genetic factor at play as well.
Innovative Laser Genesis Therapy Eliminates Spider Veins
Laser Genesis is a fast, easy, effective technique to treat superficial spider veins. In fact, laser therapy itself has been used for more than 30 years in the medical field for many different treatments. Technological advances have contributed to the development of several different lasers today.
The laser itself utilizes a focused beam of intense light by heating up the small spider vein and destroying it. Since the laser beam is 100 percent focused, it does not damage any nearby healthy skin tissue. Over the course of about six weeks, the target vein is naturally reabsorbed by your body and disappears.
How long until the Results are Evident?
Spider vein laser treatment results are not immediate. Following Laser Genesis therapy, the blood vessels just beneath the skin will slowly change from a dark-colored blue to a more light red and then eventually disappear over the course of about six weeks.
Nearly all patients report how satisfied they are with the overall procedure and are considerably relieved that they no longer have to hide their unsightly veins on their legs. The targeted areas are more visibly clear and smooth. In most cases, the patient’s skin will continue to improve with each treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Genesis?
All potential candidates for Laser Genesis are screened and evaluated by our medical team. For most people, spider veins do not have any real symptoms and are only removed for cosmetic reasons. For anyone who is experiencing symptoms, we will investigate further to ensure that any varicose veins are not present. Overall, Laser Genesis is very effective in treating tiny spider veins.
