Having great legs is a real source of pride for women who stay active and keep fit. But when spider veins appear, they can make you self conscious about your legs, no matter how shapely they may be. Spider veins are visible veins that appear as red, blue, or purple clusters anywhere on the legs. If you are plagued by spider veins, the first thing you should know is that this is actually quite a common problem and can occur to both women and men as early as their 20s. Spider veins can be caused by factors as diverse as heredity, pregnancy, hormonal shifts, running, weight gain, and extended periods of time spend in either sitting or standing positions. Some women respond by covering their legs, while others take action against the unsightly problem with Spider Vein Removal. Edgewater and Hoboken Cosmetic & Laser Centers offer this procedure for women who want that smooth, clean look of a healthy, shapely leg without the presence of spider veins.
How is Spider Vein Removal performed?
Spider Vein Removal is performed by directing a long-pulsed wavelength of laser energy at the spider vein, thus collapsing and destroying it right through the skin. With four variable settings to the powerful Focus Medical NaturaLase LP laser coupled with Zimmer Cryo aesthetic chiller, you can be rest-assured you will have an effective, customized, safe, and pain-free experience backed by a well-qualified cosmetic laser specialist. The unique aspect of this technology is that it can be applied to any part of your legs, chest, arms or face to treat those unsightly spider veins. Sessions tend to take less than one hour, and one to three sessions are usually required for best results. The Focus Medical NaturaLase LP long pulsed Yag laser is the gold-standard in treating spider veins as well as for laser hair reduction in darker skin types. Another method used at the centers for spider vein reduction, especially of the legs, is the Intense Pulsed Light source of the NFocus Medical Naturlite IPL medical devices. A consultation with the chief laser specialist and medical director, Dr. T.G. Khan at Edgewater and Hoboken Cosmetic & Laser Centers will help determine which laser and the number of sessions needed to customized the procedure just for you.
