There are many things that you can do every day to keep your veins healthy. You can wear compression stockings when you know you are going to be on your feet. You can refrain from crossing your legs and be sure to get good exercise often. However, you may still notice venous issues cropping up despite your best efforts to keep them at bay. This could be due to your lifestyle choices, your work environment or even your genetics. Today, you can treat these surface irregularities with spider vein laser treatment in DeSoto.
Spider Veins: Cosmetic Imperfections
Spider veins may be small, but they denote that there are some problems with your veins that rest just below the surface of your skin. In general, these veins have poor valves. Instead of closing to prevent the backflow of blood, they no longer close well and allow the blood to pool in the veins, pushing out the walls of the vein.
These spider veins appear as circular patterns of tiny veins. They may be light or dark, red or purple. They are considered to be unattractive wherever they appear. Oftentimes, they pop up on the upper legs or on the face. However, they can appear nearly anywhere on the body.
Although they may be unattractive, spider veins do not usually cause any physical problems. However, you may experience great emotional concerns from the cosmetic changes that your skin undergoes.
What is Spider Vein Laser Treatment?
If you are just noticing spider veins appearing on your skin or if you are tired of dealing with your spider veins that have been on your skin for years, you can turn to My Choice Spa & Wellness Lounge for a simple, safe and effective laser vein treatment. This treatment is completely non-invasive, which means that your skin will not be broken at all during the treatment.
Spider vein laser treatment works by using the heat energy from the laser to affect the venous walls. As the walls are heated, they are irritated and eventually close. When blood can no longer get through the vein, the vein dies. In the weeks and months following your treatment, your body will reabsorb these old veins, and your skin will become clear again.
