Modern Laser Care: Laser Treatment For Spider Veins

Apr 30, 2008
For the maintenance of venous health, modern laser technology has become a fast growing industry of accessible and effective health care. There are many individuals that suffer from varicose and spider veins. Sclerotherapy has been around for many years and has long been the treatment of choice. Laser treatment has only recently become a growing treatment option with many new and loyal patients finding it to be a worthy alternative.

For many, laser treatment for spider veins has become an option which is highly desirable. Laser treatment does not require any injections and simply breaks up the blood in the vessels. This then invites the body's own immune system to move in and devour any broken down blood cells, removing the blood from the veins thus making them invisible once again. Thus laser treatment for spider veins does not cause the vein to collapse in the same way that sclerotherapy does.

With any vein treatment, it is important to be aware of the benefits, risks, and potential side effects. After laser treatment, the area treated may burn a bit, sting, or feel swollen. Likewise, the laser treatment itself can feel like you are being snapped with a large rubber band. Veins that are very small which cannot be treated with injections due to their size can be treated with lasers. So there are some benefits to using laser treatment for spider veins that are very small yet still visible. Laser treatments are generally more costly than sclerotherapy overall, so this is one aspect of treatment to keep in mind. After treatments with the laser, red bruising can occur after treatments and complete healing can take about a month and a half to fully complete.

Overall, laser treatment for spider veins is a highly effective treatment option for those who may have spider veins that are too small to be effectively treated with sclerotherapy or for those who are not interested in injections. Be aware that laser treatment does not guarantee that veins will disappear and they can come back in other areas. There are some things that can be done to help prevent spider veins from occurring in the first place. Since veins can be genetic, it may be that you will develop them no matter what you do. Pregnancy can also lead to veins in the legs especially due to the weight and pressure increase. Overall weight gain can contribute to the likelihood of veins as can sitting and standing for long periods of time, especially if it is related to your occupation. On long trips, it is a good idea to get out and move around, walk, and stretch to get the blood in the legs flowing. Visible veins usually appear due to blood pooling in one area for extended periods of time.

Stay informed and seek out professional advice for to make sure that laser treatment is right for you. Asking questions to make sure that you understand the procedure from start to finish, including any side effects that may arise is the best way to make sure that you are 100% satisfied with the results of laser treatment.
