Spider veins are a cosmetic condition that appear on the skin’s surface, becoming a source of embarrassment or discomfort for those who have them. To help patients achieve clear skin, The Herschthal Practice offers spider vein treatment to men and women living in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and the nearby areas of Florida.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small webs or networks of veins that can be seen from the skin’s surface, typically displaying a red or blue color. They become visible when blood is backed up in the veins, causing them to grow larger. Spider veins are most commonly noticed on the legs and in the face, and tend to occur more often in women than men. Still, they are a common condition that nearly any demographic can develop. They are rarely a health concern, but many patients choose to pursue treatment in order to eliminate their appearance and maintain smooth, clear skin.
How Are Spider Veins Treated?
At The Herschthal Practice, we use laser vein treatment to address spider veins. This involves the use of the Excel V laser, a non-invasive laser device that painlessly targets the appropriate blood vessels from the skin’s surface. With the Excel V, we can change the wavelength of the administered laser energy, ensuring that each patient receives a treatment that is appropriate for their skin type. During this brief treatment, the Excel V laser handpiece will be placed above the affected areas. Then, it emits green laser energy that directly targets spider veins without damaging the surrounding areas. The Excel V laser has a unique cooling component that helps keep this process comfortable for patients so that no anesthetics are needed.
Is There Any Downtime After Spider Vein Treatment?
Thanks to the advanced, non-invasive techniques involved in laser vein treatment, there is no downtime required after the procedure. Patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treated areas, but these side effects fade within a few days and will not affect the patient’s ability to resume work or other regular activities.
When Will I Notice Results from Spider Vein Treatment?
Depending on the size of the area and spider veins being treated, patients will notice results at different times. Patients with smaller spider veins may see improvement after a single treatment, although larger areas and groups of spider veins may require multiple treatment sessions. Fortunately, the customization of the Excel V laser ensures that patients will achieve noticeable results faster than with other laser treatments.
