WHAT IS IT
Telangiectasias, also known as spider veins, are those small red, blue and purple blood vessels that appear most frequently on the legs. They appear as strands or clusters, and are extremely common in both men and women. These small dilated blood vessels are caused by weakened or damaged valves in the veins. Common causes of this could be hormonal changes, sun exposure, and injuries.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Here at Revita Skin Clinic, all forms of spider veins (other than varicose veins) can be successfully treated using our intense pulsed light technology. The handpiece works by firing a gentle burst of light at select blood vessels beneath the skin, heating them to a point where they are destroyed.
Following the treatment, the vessel will quickly collapse before being reabsorbed and flushed out by the body. Discomfort is minimal during this procedure. You may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping on the skin's surface. This treatment has little to no downtime, though, occasionally some redness may persist for up to 24 hours on the treated area.
Another alternative offered at our clinic is Sclerotherapy. This treatment consists of our specialists injecting a solution directly into the affected vein, to irritate the lining of the vessel. At this point, you may experience mild discomfort and cramping. This will then cause the vein to swell and collapse causing the vein to fade. Post-treatment swelling and redness is common for up to 24-48 hours.
