Spider Vein Treatment
If you avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — the small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you’re not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all adult women in the U.S. are bothered by this common cosmetic problem. In some women, spider veins become noticeable in their early 20′s. For others, the veins may not become obvious until they reach their 40′s. Men get spider veins, too. However, they are considerably less noticeable because of hair growth on the legs.
If you would like to eliminate your spider veins and improve your legs’ appearance, Dr. Alfonso Oliva can help. Dr. Oliva uses effective and safe laser treatment methods to eradicate spider veins. In laser spider vein treatments, a beam is pulsed onto the veins to seal them off, causing the veins to dissolve. Several treatments are usually needed for optimal results. Laser vein removal is a safe, fast and effective way to treat spider veins.
A number of factors can contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:
- Hormonal shifts
- Weight gain
- Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
Is Spider Vein Laser Treatment Right for You?
Spider vein treatment can be performed on people of any age and is a good option for you if:
- You are bothered by spider veins anywhere on your body
- You are committed to following Dr. Oliva’s prescribed course of treatment
What to Expect After Your Treatment
Dr. Oliva typically encourages patients to resume all normal activities immediately. Final treatment results may not be apparent for several months, but most patients are satisfied by the results in a very short time.
