If your life has been impacted by the presence of spider veins, you have likely thought about ways to have them removed. They can appear as red, blue or purple lines on the face, chest and legs. These lines are often interwoven much like the strands of a spider web. Because they typically do not consist of a single vein, they are even more noticeable to others. Knowing this can make people with the condition self-conscious. If you are in a situation like this, you might want to learn more about the Vbeam laser for spider vein removal. It is a safe and effective way to remove spider veins and restore the look you had before they developed. Since spider veins are sometimes seen as a sign of aging, you may also look younger after the therapy.
Laser therapy works for spider vein removal by using heat to safely destroy the problem veins. The energy from the laser is focused onto the veins without destroying the surrounding tissue. Once the treated veins are destroyed, the tissue that remains will be absorbed by the body. It will disappear from view over the following weeks.
Vbeam lasers provide our specialist with a number of advantages for the benefit of the patient that some other types of laser treatments do not offer. Its design enables our specialist to choose from a wide range of available laser energy strengths in order to deliver exactly what is needed to adequately treat the targeted veins. This will improve the success rate of the treatment. Even the smallest of spider veins can be effectively treated because of the micro pulses through which the energy can be directed.
While the precise adjustments help with the effectiveness of the treatment, a cooling device on the equipment helps to keep the patient comfortable throughout the process. The upper layers of the skin are cooled while the energy is directed to the lower layers. These two factors combined help to prevent complications. It will also minimize downtime following the treatment.
Vbeam laser therapy is safe for most skin types. If you are looking for a way to remove your spider veins, you should discuss the Vbeam system with our team at Lougheed Laser Centre.
