Spider Veins Removal

Laser therapy and sclerotherapy are noninvasive procedure for reducing and treating spider veins. These therapies are generally performed as in-office procedures with almost no downtime. You will be able to attain enhanced quality of life by improving the appearance of your skin.

Board certified plastic surgeons at the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS) provide advanced and minimally invasive spider vein removal treatments to patients in Houston, Texas, TX, and surrounding communities.

Suitable Candidates for Spider Vein Removal

Laser treatment and sclerotherapy are recommended for people that are concerned with the appearance of spider veins around their facial area and legs. In particular, the procedure is helpful for women wanting to wear shorts and skirts confidently without being conscious about tiny veins.

Spider veins are usually red, blue or purple colored. Laser vein removal and sclerotherapy helps patients attain freedom from visible veins without an invasive surgery.

Sclerotherapy Procedure

In sclerotherapy the treatment provider will directly administer a medicated saline solution in the diseased vein. This will be done after calculating the extent of underlying vein.

Inner lining will get irritated by the solution once it is injected in the blood vessel. This irritation occurs because of the swelling of blood vessels. Subsequently, the swollen vessels would block blood flow within the targeted vein.

Over time, the treated vein will disintegrate due to clotting and your body’s natural metabolism will reroute the blood flow to healthy veins. In the meantime, dead veins will get reabsorbed resulting in clean and smooth skin around the treated area.

Laser Therapy Vein Removal

Targeted light flashes will be focused by the laser vein removal expert on your spider veins. Scar tissue will form within the diseased vein with concentrated and precise heat energy generation. This will cause the targeted vein to close cutting off the blood supply.

Eventually, the diseased vein will die and surrounding veins will resume a healthy and natural blood flow. Varicose veins or spider veins will be eliminated naturally by the body’s metabolic processes.

Superficial Laser Treatment

Mild or superficial laser therapy is used in facial and other sensitive areas. You can remove these noticeable veins to improve your skin appearance. Top skin layers will be targeted by this treatment for reducing the appearance of spider veins.

Larger feeder vein responsible for poor blood flow to the facial veins may be targeted by the treatment provider in some cases before performing mild laser vein therapy. Stronger laser beam is required by feeder veins. Another injectable treatment, such as sclerotherapy may also be used by the treatment provider for targeting the larger vein.
