What are spider veins?
Spider veins are the result of the poor elasticity of the fibres in the venous walls. Spider veins are usually red and occur on the face and nose. They may be soft and can cause larger flares on the face. In the worst cases they are stronger and branched which makes them more visible. They do not only occur on the face. Their blue variant can occur on lower extremities.
The formation of spider veins is caused by several factors. These factors include genes, excessive sunbathing, quick and extreme temperature changes, etc.
They are formed especially:
- During pregnancy
- As a result of obesity
- During severe hormonal changes
- As a result of serious disease
What does the procedure for spider vein removal involve?
The most effective method for removing spider veins is laser treatment. It is highly effective. At Asklepion we have several options. Our dermatologists will gladly advise you on the best treatment for you.
This removes veins of up to 1mm in diameter. The laser beam is captured by the vein, which is destroyed and subsequently gradually absorbed by the body. Compared to some older lasers, treatment with Vbeam usually leaves no visible spots on the treated area.
This laser enables us to remove light blue veins with a diameter of 1.0 to 3.0 mm. It is used for removing veins on the legs (for example around the ankles), where spider veins continue to branch when left untreated.
- For the perfect result approximately 2 to 3 sessions are required.
- There is no need to be afraid of severe pain, during treatment with a laser you will only feel something like "pinch".
- The results are visible after the first treatment.
Get rid of unpleasant blushing
At Asklepion we also carry out specialized interventions for aesthetic issues that were until recently not possible to remove. So-called diffuse reddening of the face is characterized by a large quantity of small veins, which abruptly change colour due to emotions, or when moving from hot to cold environments.
We use the Ellipse Flex device to remove this problem. This device removes the spider veins for 100 % and recovery is very fast - it only takes a few hours.
What to do after spider vein removal?
- Use ice on the treated area right after the intervention to minimize possible swelling.
- Do not scratch off the scabs that may appear. Let them fall off naturally.
- It is necessary to protect the treated area from UV radiation over the long term.
