Laser Spider Vain Treatment (Elite+) Spider veins are small blood vessels located in the skin. These present themselves in a tinge of red or blue depending upon a patient’s skin. The veins are filled with de-oxygenated blood (venous) or oxygenated blood (red). Over time, these veins become cosmetically unappealing especially as they grow in number or visibility. These veins can start to appear near the cheeks, nostrils, eyebrows, forehead, and chin. Some patients may complain of seeing spider veins in other regions of their body such as the back of their hands. This clinic offers a comprehensive treatment for spider veins and will aid patients in eliminating them once and for all. These cosmetically unpleasant veins are targeted and removed with the assistance of world-class technology. Causes of Spider Veins Spider veins can appear due to a number of reasons and each case will vary depending on the patient’s skin type or medical history.

Treatment This clinic offers patents with an in-depth, precise treatment using radio frequency technology. Spider vein treatments entail the use of targeted wavelengths of energy to bypass the top layer of skin. This technology is tested to achieve pinpoint accuracy and will ensure surrounding regions do not get damaged. A specialist inspects the skin beforehand ensuring it is prepared for the procedure. Upon completion, patients will notice the skin won’t scar, blemish, or change in texture. The treatment will commence with a detailed consultation at the clinic. This consultation will include an assessment of your skin, medical history, short or long-term goals, and information on radio frequency technology. Patients are welcome to ask questions at any point during the consultation. During the treatment, a specialist will evaluate the skin once more to prepare it for the session. If deemed appropriate, the treatment will be set for 15-30 minutes. The wavelengths of energy are directed towards the problem area to help eliminate the spider veins.
