What Can Be Done About This Condition?
Fortunately, even if you have a strong family history of spider veins, there are ways to prevent them from occurring. This includes:
- Regular exercise
- Eating a high-fibre, low-sodium diet
- Keeping your legs elevated when resting
- Changing your sitting or standing position regularly
- Wearing support stockings
- Avoiding excessive sun exposure
- Avoiding wearing high heels
- Not crossing your legs when sitting
- Avoiding standing for long periods of time
Can SKINS Help Me with My Condition?
While prevention is the best way to keep your legs and face free of spider veins, sometimes, despite your best efforts, they show up anyways, and can be impossible to get rid of on your own.
Thankfully, here at SKINS, we’ve got you covered, and can help make spider veins a thing of the past, allowing you to feel more confident and secure when exposing your skin.
Here are our top recommendations for treatments offered at our clinics that can help eliminate spider veins.
Laser Vein Removal
For stubborn spider veins on the legs and face, the most effective course of treatment is laser therapy.
SKINS’ Cutera® Nd:YAG laser system helps treat these frustrating veins safely, easily, and most importantly, comfortably, and requires minimal downtime.
How it works is, the laser system delivers heat energy to these dilated blood vessels, forcing them to coagulate and collapse, and therefore dissolve as they are disposed of by the body.
Cutera® Laser Genesis
This non-ablative treatment is ideal for treating facial veins and excess redness.
The system uses non-invasive laser technology to help remove spider veins and improve your skin’s natural collagen production, leading to an overall restored, glowing, and more youthful complexion.
For a non-laser alternative, SKINS also offers our clients compression sock fitting.
The Sigvaris compression stockings available through our clinics help to improve blood circulation, which can, as a result, prevent spider veins from occurring.
Cynosure IPL ICON
The Cynosure IPL Icon helps to treat spider veins along with discoloured and damaged skin cells by delivering intense pulsed light (IPL) into the skin. This helps to constrict the blood vessels without damaging surrounding tissues and makes spider veins and other types of skin discolouration less visible.
The Cynosure Elite+ is an advanced laser system used to treat and remove unwanted hair along with spider veins on all skin types.
The Cynosure Elite+ is unique in that it uses a dual-wavelength system that allows the laser to quickly and effectively penetrate deep within the skin to help eliminate spider veins and get rid of unwanted body hair.
