What are the different spider vein treatments for patients?
Spider veins that appear anywhere in the body have no medical consequence and are not cause for alarm for our patients . However, the appearance of facial spider veins has such a big aesthetic significance and bothers many of Dr. Jones’ patients.
Facial spider veins are usually caused by too much exposure to harmful rays of the sun. This can also be a consequence of other skin conditions like rosacea. Facial spider veins are usually very prominent in areas around the nose, in the cheeks, and in the chin. At our clinic , Dr. Timothy Jones treats facial spider veins using the innovative technology of the Alma Nd Yag laser and the Alma AFT 570 laser. Both treatments are proven effective in reducing the appearance of spider veins not only in the face, but also in the chest.
Spider veins that appear in other parts of the body like the legs are commonly treated using sclerotherapy. This procedure involves the introduction of a sclerosing solution into each affected vein. Once it is injected into the vein, it will cause it to collapse and fade gradually. Spider veins in the legs can also be treated with the use of our laser therapy techniques which is also as effective as the traditional sclerotherapy technique.
