Vein Therapy Q&A

What causes spider veins?

Veins that become prominently visible on your skin, which often look like a spider’s web or squiggly lines, can appear when veins stop working properly and blood pools inside them. Although spider and varicose veins can happen to anyone, factors that increase your risk include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Overweight
  • Genetics
  • Being female
  • Older age
  • Hormone changes
  • Standing or sitting for long periods
  • Sun damage

Fortunately, simple, non-invasive treatments at Elite Dermatology can eliminate unsightly spider and varicose veins and restore your beautiful complexion.

Is vein therapy treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for vein therapy treatment, your dermatology specialist reviews your medical history and examines your skin. In some cases, they might recommend you undergo an ultrasound to better assess vein health and develop a treatment plan.

What are my vein therapy treatment options?

Depending on the type and severity of visible veins you experience, your Elite Dermatology specialist might recommend one of the following vein treatments:

Laser treatment

Non-invasive laser treatment uses laser energy to damage unsightly veins, causing them to fade away over time. Laser technology also helps boost collagen and elastin production to help you achieve younger-looking skin. The treatment is painless without any downtime.

Intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL treatment uses light energy to target specific veins, damaging them and allowing blood to reroute to healthier veins. There’s no discomfort or downtime associated with the procedure.

How many vein treatments will I need?

You might require multiple vein treatments or additional cosmetic procedures at Elite Dermatology to achieve the most desirable, long-lasting outcome. The number of appointments needed will usually vary depending on your individual needs and your specialist goes over what to expect with each treatment session.
