Spider and Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins seen in the legs result from incompetence of the valves that prevent back flow of blood that is returning from the legs to the heart. When the valves fail the blood can pool in the surface veins of the lower limbs and appear dilated, congested and tortuous. The outcome is often painful, unsightly dark coloured irregularities on the legs, although varicose veins are not limited to this part of the body. The condition is not life-threatening but some of the more significant symptoms include swelling, venous eczema, skin thickening and ulceration. 

Spider Veins, so called because of their web-like appearance, are the smaller version that form closer to the surface and appear red or blue. They are not limited to the legs and can appear on the face or other part of the body, in a small or large area. This condition may be the result of blood flow complications, injury and hormone fluctuations, among others.

Treatment Options

Laser Vein Removal

Broken capillaries and other damaged vascular structures will be gently eliminated from the visible layers of your skin’s surface using Laser Vein Removal treatments.

The laser delivers light energy and thereby gentle heat to the skin area being treated, blending away the veins and vascular lesions, and restoring the clarity of the skin’s appearance.

Laser for Defussed Redness

Diffused redness refers to a skin condition caused by dilated capillaries which most commonly affect the nose, forehead and cheeks.  The blood vessels are enlarged and normally present as redness on the face.

There are many tiny red blood vessels under the surface of the skin, if they dilate the result is noticeable.
