How Does Spider Vein Treatment Work?
Nearly half of all women and men suffer from some type of vein problem in the United States. Even though it is considered a cosmetic imperfection, many people suffer from serious side effects that spider veins can cause. Tattoo Undo and Veins Too understands the spider vein treatment needed to reverse this disorder and leave you feeling happy and healthy.
At Tattoo Undo and Veins Too we use the Cutera Excel V Laser, known for its state-of-the-art technology that enables the laser beam to penetrate deep beneath the skin without sacrificing patient safety and comfort. The heat energy from the laser beam causes the blood in the spider vein to clot. Once the blood flow is stopped the vein closes and begins to shrink. Blood flow is redirected to healthy veins. Over the next few weeks, the spider vein disappears as it is safely absorbed by the body.
Patients usually do not have to miss any work after laser spider vein treatment. The post procedure treatment may include wearing sunscreen, pressure hosiery, avoiding blood thinners, hot tubs and vigorous exercise for several days. Side effects such as redness, swelling or minor bruising can occur but generally disappear within a few days.
