Today we continue our look at the amazing uses of lasers. Everyone wants to look and feel their best, but having unsightly spider veins can bring your mood down. Spider veins affect both women and men, but are more common in women. They generally occur on the face and legs. Your podiatrists at the Foot and Ankle Wellness Center offer non-invasive treatment for spider veins with our Aerolase LightPro Neo Laser.
Spider veins are small red or purple blood vessels that twist and turn beneath the skin. They can be painful and are highly visible. Many people who spend long days on their feet will develop spider veins although they can also occur due to heredity, pregnancy, and blood clots. The simple laser treatment is easy, quick, and can greatly reduce the appearance of these spider veins. The heat from the laser damages the veins, causing scar tissue to form. The scar tissue then fills the veins and makes it disappear.
Your podiatrist is here to help find the right treatment for your spider veins. Even if your spider veins don’t cause you pain, they can worsen and spread over time, so treating them early is important.
