Varicose and spider veins can crop up for a number reasons. They’re often due to genetics but environmental factors like pregnancy, spending a lot of time on your feet, poor diet, obesity, hormonal changes, inactivity and sun exposure can also play a role. Basically, when you have weak valves that can’t push blood through the vein it creates a traffic jam of sorts. The blood gets stuck leading to the appearance of varicose veins and spider veins.
Laser treatment is the safest, most natural way to treat these unsightly spider veins and varicose veins on your legs. We pass a laser over the vein so that light energy can make its way through the skin. It helps liquefy the coagulated blood that is trapped in the vessel. Your lymphatic system then simply flushes it out. The alternative is to inject them with chemicals, which is far more painful and requires a longer recovery. Plus, smaller spider veins cannot be treated with injections.
