Treating Leg Veins
We have found great success in clearing leg veins in men and women with our pulsed-light based laser technology. Laser technology is best used to improve superficial, diffuse spider veins. For spider veins, the laser is calibrated to target the red pigment in these tiny veins, breaking them apart so they can be absorbed by the body. For patients with extensive varicose veins, other treatment options may be available.
It’s time to stop hiding unsightly leg veins under long pants and skirts. Contact us today and take the first step towards getting your beautiful legs back!
How do Spider Veins and Varicose Veins Differ?
While both types of veins commonly appear on the legs, they aren’t the same thing at all. The chart below provides a brief comparison of these problematic leg veins.
- Small, thin lines beneath the skin that are usually blue, red, or purple in color
- Usually have a complex branching or web-like appearance
- Thick, rope-like veins that appear dark purple or blue beneath the skin
- Veins are often raised or bumpy and can be felt beneath the skin’s surface
- Typically asymptomatic
- Slight itching may occur when spider veins are a result of poor circulation
- Heavy feeling, achiness, cramping, or throbbing in the legs
- Increased pain after standing for longer periods
- Itching around veins
- Bleeding from the vein
||Caused by weakened valves or poor circulation that can lead to the formation of varicose veins
||Form when the one-way valve in the veins is damaged, causing blood to pool in the vein
