Spider Vein Reduction Single Session
Why suffer needlessly with unsightly veins on the face and legs? The Rohrer Spectrum's long pulsed nd:Yag laser will diminish the appearance of existing veins. The 1064nm laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. The energy is absorbed and the vein walls collapse and seal shut. Eliminating veins with the Spectrum 1064nm laser is quick and effective for most individuals. Treatments work best on smaller veins (3mm or less). Varicose veins and larger than 3mm spider veins should be managed by a vascular surgeon.
Online only special pricing includes up to 4 square inches of treatment area. Additional square inches or any part thereof are $50 per square inch (payable at time of treatment).
Spider veins are the least serious of the most common vein disorders. Spider veins are essentially smaller versions of varicose veins and are caused by blood pooling in the veins because the valves are not closing completely. Spider veins commonly appear as as small red or purple cluster of veins that are near the skin’s surface. Depending on how large or dark they are, they may appear unattractive but generally do not cause much discomfort. The cause of spider veins is uncertain, but factors that weaken vein valves include aging, obesity, leg injury, and prolonged standing. Spider veins on the face of a fair-skinned person can occur from exposure to the sun.
Venous disease can affect anyone, but some people are more susceptible to certain types of venous disease. For example, women are more likely than men to have spider or varicose veins. However, with age, both genders have an increased likelihood of developing varicose veins, and by the age of 55, about half of all men and women have developed some degree of vein disease. Varicose veins also have a tendency to run in families. Other risk factors for varicose veins include age, obesity, pregnancy (pregnant women are more likely to develop spider and/or varicose veins) and extreme height. People with jobs that require them to stand for long periods often develop varicose veins as well.
