Spider veins are one of the most common cosmetic problems affecting women as well as men. Spider veins are dilated capillaries of the skin. Dilation of the capillaries makes them visible underneath the epidermis. They are primarily found on the legs and face of women mostly during periods of hormonal disorders such as adolescence, pregnancy and climacterium. Heredity and prolonged standing play an important role in the extent and appearance of spider veins.
Modern lasers allow a particular amount of energy to be absorbed exclusively and only by the vessel. The increase of the vessel’s temperature results in its immediate destruction. The tissues and remaining skin around the spider veins are not exposed to the laser’s energy. The results are permanent and the veins never appear again.
The procedure is painless and the patient can resume daily activities straightaway.
