Spider vein treatment
Lasers are be a simple, effective, fast, and safe way to reduce the look of spider veins. Lasers treat these small veins by sending a laser pulse of energy through the skin and towards the blood in the vein. The hemoglobin (blood) absorbs the laser’s energy until the blood clots and the vein is sealed closed. The vein is then reabsorbed by your body and eliminated.
We still don’t know the exact cause, but there are some common factors, such as:
> Hormone/estrogen levels, especially during pregnancy and when using birth control
> Thyroid levels
> Liver diseases, ie. cirrhosis
> Prolonged UV exposure
> Steroid medications
> Hepatitis infections
> It can also be hereditary
Is it dangerous to treat too many veins and Could it affect Blood circulation?
It is VERY unlikely for too many veins to be treated resulting in harm to the body. The veins that are are being treated are only in the superficial vein system. They are caused by a dysfunctional, larger “feeder” vein. Sometimes, removing these Spider Veins can improve circulation and blood flow in the legs. After the spider veins are gone, the blood will be forced to go back to the heart and then through the deeper venous system.
There are still plenty of larger, healthy veins in the deeper systems that will not be affected by the laser treatments.
Varicose Vein Treatments
These types of veins cannot usually be effectively treated with a typical laser, however, there are safe and effective alternative treatments:
Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)
This laser treatment is used to treat the veins, but it is used internally rather than from the surface of the skin. This treatment is minimally invasive and uses ultrasound to guide a thin instrument directly into the veins through the calf or thigh. Then the laser energy is delivered into the varicose vein until the vein is clotted, sealed, and destroyed.
