Spider veins shouldn’t stop you from showing your legs

Spider veins shouldn’t keep you from wearing shorts or even a swimsuit. Imagine hitting the beach without worrying how your legs look.spider veins, bonita springs, naples

Thanks to the warm temperatures in Southwest Florida, you can bare your legs year-round, so why not make sure they look their best?

Twisting and turning blood vessels can creep across your legs and face, leaving easily seen dark purple and blue marks. Though completely harmless, spider veins cause many people to feel self-conscious.We treat these marks with our Profile Clearscan Laser. You can confidently put back on that favorite short dress or swim suit when you stride onto the sands.

Spider veins develop more often for women than men and increase in frequency with age. Several risk factors contribute to the appearance of spider veins including heredity, obesity, hormones, and birth control use. Occupations that involve a lot of standing such as hair stylists, nurses, teachers or factory workers can also lead to spider vein development.

But do not feel alone; an estimated 30-60 percent of adults have spider veins.

Spider veins treatment

Using the Profile Clearscan Laser, Naples Laser and Medspa staff can safely and effectively treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and discoloration of your skin.

Clearscan is a new laser that uses infrared energy. Unwanted vessels will be preferentially heated by the laser’s energy and become less noticeable. It helps with larger (blue) reticular veins or smaller facial veins.

All skin areas receive help through the treatment including the face, neck, chest and legs. Smaller vessels are easily treated, but some larger vessels such as bulging varicose veins in the legs require other treatment plans. A consultation helps us determine your specific needs.

After the treatment, your skin may develop a pink or red color, but that will resolve over time. Any vessels denatured by the laser reabsorb into your body in a natural cleansing process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow. Some larger areas of cluster vessels require a longer healing period and may appear bruised for a short time. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light and you must avoid direct sunlight on treated areas until you are fully healed.

There should be little to no discomfort, however this varies from client to client and depends on the depth of the treatment. There is no need for anesthesia. The SouthWest Laser and MedSpa staff will discuss your options to properly manage any discomfort from the treatment.

At Naples Laser and Medspa, we welcome your questions. Feel free to call us at 239-228-7491 to schedule a free consultation. We’d be happy to show you firsthand how this simple procedure works, and show you before-and-after photos of those who have had Clearscan spider vein treatments.

Don’t let those spider veins keep your legs covered up any longer.
