How Do Spider Veins Form?

Skin Bar is proud to offer Lutronic’s revolutionary Clarity Treatment.  It is able to treat all skin types. Spider veins are an unsightly cosmetic concern that medical professionals are unsure of their precise cause. It’s speculated that their development is primarily due to weakened or damaged vein valves. Every day, blood is circulating throughout your body. When blood reaches your lower extremities, the greater energy output is required to push the blood back up to your heart. This energy output is needed because of gravity’s force, which your blood needs to work against. Your veins consist of valves that help prevent your blood from slipping backward. It’s possible for these valves to become damaged, resulting in a pooling of blood in your veins, which causes them to expand and protrude. The result is spider veins. While medical professionals aren’t certain of the precise cause for spider veins, certain factors can potentially lead to their development, including:

  • Old Age
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Alcohol and tobacco use
  • Hormonal changes
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin inflammatory conditions

Who Is a Good Spider Vein Treatment Candidate?

If you are struggling with your spider veins, you will be an excellent candidate for spider vein treatment at Skin Bar. The treatment can be performed on men and women of any skin tone. Your spider vein treatment provider will review your spider veins, medical history, and currently prescribed medications during an initial consultation to ensure candidacy. If you are taking blood thinners, you should stop taking them for several weeks before and after your spider vein treatment. It’s also key to have realistic expectations if you are considering the treatment. Spider vein treatment is often performed on the legs, where they are commonly found, but the treatment is also successful at treating broken capillaries found on the face

Clarity Laser for Spider Veins

We can significantly decrease the visibility of spider veins with the Lutronic Clarity Laser. The Clarity delivers light energy beneath the skin’s surface into troublesome veins using dual wavelengths. The heat from the laser makes the blood to coagulate and heat up the walls of the blood vessels once the veins are targeted. Over time, the veins collapse, shut, and disappear from view.

* Healing of spider veins can be difficult with other lasers that do not allow for this type of treatment.

Which light therapy is best for spider veins?

Every operation has risks, which is why Clarity’s medical experts will thoroughly examine your veins and advise you to the best treatment technique.

Laser vein therapy uses the application of a laser beam to target the unattractive vein. The warmth causes the blood to clot and warms the vein walls, allowing it to shut off and fall. Blood that used to flow via the vein is diverted to other normal veins.

What is the most effective spider vein treatment?

Clarity can be used to treat tiny spider veins, which appear as little red, purple, or blue veins immediately beneath the top layer of skin. Clarity Laser Treatment is a dual-wavelength platform that produces excellent outcomes. The body progressively reabsorbs closed veins over time, and unattractive veins should no longer be visible. Because spider veins are often not symptomatic, it is considered a cosmetic procedure, and insurance companies typically do not pay it. 

How many treatments does it take to get rid of spider veins?  

Each visit usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. The number of sessions required is determined on the size of the vein and how well your veins respond to the therapy. In most situations, 2-5 treatments are required to remove the appearance of spider veins fully. Additional treatments may be required if the spider veins are larger and more common.

Most patients notice improvements in three to six weeks for minor spider veins. However, for bigger spider veins, results may take three to four months to appear.
