Vascular conditions and diseases can result in a variety of side effects. Poor circulation, blood clots, artery diseases, and other vascular problems can produce unsightly veins and capillaries. The legs are the most common place for these blemishes to appear, but they can also show up in your hands, feet, and arms. Although not dangerous, these vascular conditions can make you self-conscious about wearing shorts, skirts, or a bathing suit. Fortunately, there are vascular treatment options available to get rid of your unsightly veins.
Laser Vein Treatment
One popular vascular treatment option for getting rid of unsightly veins is through laser vein therapy. Laser vein treatments are most effective in targeting smaller vascular lesions, which are dilated blood vessels that show through the surface of the skin. Vascular lesions come in a variety of forms, including rosacea, spider veins, and varicose veins. Rosacea is skin inflammation, sometimes chronic, that produces acne, dilated blood vessels, inflammation, and redness. Alcohol, caffeine, sun exposure, and temperature fluctuations can all affect the severity of rosacea. Spider veins and varicose veins can be hereditary, but they can also be caused by weight changes, hormonal imbalances, and living a sedentary lifestyle.
During laser vein therapy, your practitioner seals off the vein by zapping it with high-intensity light. This vascular treatment procedure is minimally-invasive, and it is ideal for treating spider and varicose veins. After a 30 minute vascular treatment session with laser vein therapy, unsightly veins will start to fade. Multiple sessions may be necessary, but this is fully dependent on each patient. The only significant side effects you should expect are both redness and warmth, which should not last long. No recovery time is necessary.
