Spider veins are the smallest type of visible veins that may afflict your skin. They most often show up on the legs because of the pull of gravity. They may be a hereditary concern, or they may be related to certain lifestyle choices, such as how often you exercise, cross your legs or sit during the day. When lifestyle changes alone do not improve your visible vein concerns, you will want to find a better solution. For many, this is venous ablation.
Vein ablation treatments use laser energy to heat up and irritate the walls of the problem veins. When irritated, the walls swell shut, cutting off the blood supply and eventually dying. Vein ablation can be done completely noninvasively with a laser held directly on the surface of the skin. Problem veins that are somewhat larger may need endovenous laser ablation instead. In this treatment, the laser is placed inside your vein through a small catheter. Here are some reasons why this procedure might be right for you.
Small Visible Veins
Small visible veins can gradually become larger and more visible over time. In fact, sometimes, they can actually grow to the point that they start causing you physical discomfort.
This treatment may also be right if you are embarrassed by the visible veins on your skin, especially if they are on your lower legs or your face. A series of simple treatments can give you back your confidence.
Because vein ablation is not a surgery, it comes with far fewer risks than more traditional methods do. Plus, you will not be left with marks on your skin.
You may have tried covering up your visible veins with clothes or makeup so that they did not cause you so much embarrassment. With laser ablation, your veins will die and fade away gradually but permanently over the course of several treatments and a few months. While new visible veins can form over time, these ones will be forever gone.
Noninvasive laser treatments for veins as well as minimally invasive endovenous laser ablation are both very safe and are designed not to harm any other nearby tissue. When performed by an experienced professional, venous ablation is incredibly safe.
There may be many reasons why you are searching for a treatment for your visible veins.
