What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are those red and blue veins that tend to appear on our faces and legs. These superficial lines usually develop when too much pressure is put on certain parts of our bodies. When pressure builds up, these offshoot veins become more prominent, acting like dead ends in the circulatory system. Though typically not painful, spider veins can be tough to look at and most people simply want them gone. Always at the front lines of innovation, our team at Helio Health & Wellness is proud to provide the ICON™ laser and Potenza™ RF systems to make spider veins a thing of the past.
What Causes Spider Veins?
These unsightly veins appear when too much pressure is put on certain parts of our bodies. When blood pools in veins near the surface of our skin, these veins become more pronounced and visible. Some factors that influence the appearance of spider veins include heredity, obesity, trauma, and fluctuations in hormone levels. In many cases, the exact cause is not known. They tend to be most common among people over 30 and in pregnant women.
How Can Helio Help Me?
Depending on your specific vein location and personal factors, Dr. Neyman can recommend either a Potenza™ RF or ICON™ laser treatment. The Potenza™ uses ultrafine needles and radiofrequency to ease the appearance of spider veins, while the ICON™ uses fractional laser energy. Both treatments can provide effective results, but it will be up to you and Dr. Neyman to determine which one would be the best fit for you. Regardless of your choice, our dedicated team will do all we can to make sure you leave our center feeling happy and beautiful.
What Are the Results of Treatment?
Neither the ICON™ nor the Potenza™ requires any downtime after treatment. Right after your visit, you will be free to go about the rest of your day. However, some side effects such as redness and bruising may occur and linger for several hours. Both devices may require several treatment sessions for best results. When deciding on your preferred choice, Dr. Neyman will provide you with all of the details you need before proceeding.
