Varicose veins are blue veins that are visible on the surface of the skin and tend to appear on the lower legs. In addition to causing pain, itching and a burning sensation, varicose veins can have a dramatic impact on your appearance, causing you to appear older before your time. At Marcus Medical Spa, we routinely administer advanced, noninvasive laser treatments to permanently eliminate these unsightly blemishes, restoring your smooth and youthful appearance.

What causes varicose veins?

Though not all causes of varicose veins are within your control, knowing your risk factors can help you to avoid new veins from developing in the future. The most common causes of varicose veins include:

Sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time

When you’re in the same position for too long, your blood doesn’t flow optimally and varicose veins may form.

Being Overweight or Obese

Carrying excess weight puts pressure on your veins, potentially weakening them and causing them to become varicose.

Pregnancy

Many women develop varicose veins for the first time when they are pregnant, as a result of decreased blood flow from the legs.

Growing Older

As we age, our veins begin to stretch thanks to a loss of elasticity. Blood may then collect in the veins, causing them to enlarge and become varicose.

Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes in the body due to pregnancy, menopause, hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills may also contribute to the formation of varicose veins.

Congenital factors

Varicose veins tend to run in families. If you have family members who have them, chances are you will develop them as well.

What is a Varicose Vein Treatment?

Among the best varicose vein treatment Los Angeles has available 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, in general you can expect the entire treatment to last approximately 20 minutes.

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 procedure 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 varicose vein recurrence.
