You might be asking yourself; how I know if you have spider veins? Spider veins (also known as thread veins or by their medical name telangiectasia) are small red, blue, or purple veins that show up on your skin usually around the legs. Spider veins are generally harmless and do not pose any health concerns; forming from a variety of causes from pregnancy, age, body weight, hormone imbalance, family history of them, or previous blood clotting and vein damage. Many people experience this condition, about 79% of adult males and 88% of adult females making up approximately 50-75% of the population worldwide.
If you find that the veins hurt, possibly causing swelling, itchiness, or bleeding then you may have varicose veins. Varicose veins seem alike to spider veins but are larger and deeper, even appearing lumpy or twisted. They would also appear as a blue or skin tone colour. A much stronger treatment is needed for varicose veins so we recommend against our procedure for such a condition.
Here at LuxBright Medica, our licensed chiropodists can help treat your spider veins in a painless and fast way, we are a specialized spider veins removal clinic. Our clinic uses the latest in laser technology, our WOLF laser machines are very versatile outperforming most other units and has a very high power level.
Our laser treatment directly hits the target areas closing off the weakened veins letting them naturally fade away within a period of weeks. Most veins will only require one or two treatments. A common concern might be if the treatment has any adverse effects but actually when the treatment closes down these damaged veins it opens up pathways to healthier veins helping your circulation.
Other treatments can be more invasive and painful, using a needle to inject into the veins which pose the risk of allergic reactions and requiring you to wear compression stockings after treatment.
Compression stockings can be very difficult to put on and have very specific care and cleaning methods. With our fast laser treatment, you can see the effects swiftly and there are barely any rules for you to follow afterwards or need for recovery time, letting you go back to your life right after treatment.
