Theres an easy solution.. laser vien removal. Most spiderviens and telangiectasias (some red ones) are be removed easily with the use of a laser. Its rather quick and mildly discomfortable. Some veins, depending on the severity, can be treated with sclerotherapy (saline injections into the vein).

Why do we develope these veins?
The cause of varicose and spider veins is due to the increase in pressure within the vessel walls, which leads to incompetency in the valves. When there is a weakness in the vien wall or vaulty valve, the valve stretches and no longer closes properly. The veins become filled with blood
Factors that may cause spider veins:
Menopauce, change in hormones
History of DVT.
The condition mor often affects women then men.
How does Laser Vein Removal work?
Simply put, the heat from the laser is attracted to the blood in the vein. When it makes contact, it heats the blood, breaking it down and collapsing the vien. Its then your bodies job to reabsorb it into your body.
What will my results be?
Some viens will disappear immediately, some may take a couple weeks.
