What is laser vein treatment?
Laser vein treatment can make a significant difference in how you look and feel about yourself. During the
procedure, a laser is used to shrink the blood vessels that are causing your veins, allowing them to fade
from view. This is also known by the name of spider vein removal. A noninvasive procedure, laser vein treatment at Marcus Medical Spa is an excellent way to
reduce unsightly veins, without any subsequent scarring or skin damage.
What are spider and varicose veins?
To understand the treatment of varicose and spider veins, it’s first helpful to know what they are and how
they developed. Varicose veins are the larger of the two types of veins. They tend to develop in the legs,
as raised and swollen blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. Conversely, spider veins are smaller,
red, purple and blue blood vessels that commonly appear on the legs and face.
There are a number of factors that may contribute to the development of varicose and spider veins,
- Being overweight or obese.
- Congenital factors.
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause.
- A history of blood clots.
- Hormone replacement therapy or the use of birth control pills.
- Sitting or standing for long periods of time.
What to expect during your procedure
Laser vein treatment in Manhattan Beach at Marcus Medical Spa is a minimally invasive, virtually pain-free procedure that
involves sending high energy pulses of light directly into the veins without damaging the surrounding
healthy tissue. The blood vessels absorb the light, causing the veins to shrink and eventually disappear
completely. Though the length of your procedure will vary depending on how many veins you possess and the
size of the treatment area, in general you can expect the entire procedure to last approximately 30
After your procedure, there is virtually no downtime, with most clients resuming their normal activities
immediately. In some cases, you may experience mild bruising and swelling in the treatment area, though it
will subside gradually over time. In addition, you will be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and exposure
to the sun after your treatment to ensure an optimal result.
Our specialists will also provide you with guidelines to prevent additional veins from developing in the
future. For example, you will be advised to follow a routine exercise regime, maintain a healthy weight,
avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time, and refrain from crossing your legs to reduce the chance
of a spider or varicose vein recurrence.
