Spider veins can take away from an otherwise youthful, beautiful look. These easily visible spider veins can be blue, red, or purple in appearance. They twist and turn underneath the skin’s surface. At Alma Rose, we can help you get rid of these pesky veins.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins and varicose veins originate from chronic venous insufficiency, which is known as “venous reflux.” They are a circulation issue which creates that unwanted appearance of a spider web of colorful veins visible just underneath the skin.
What Causes Spider Veins?
The job of your veins is to bring used blood back to your heart to receive more oxygen, so it can then recirculate throughout your body. Veins have to go against gravity to do this hard work, but they have the assistance of valves that keep the blood flowing in the correct direction. When these valves weaken due to age, sitting or standing for long periods of time, pregnancy, or genetics, the blood slips back into the vein and pools. The pooling then manifests into spider veins or larger varicose veins, which resemble a spider’s web, located close to the surface of your skin.
How Can Alma Rose Help?
At Alma Rose, we have treatments to heal spider veins, varicose veins, and reticular veins without damaging the surrounding skin. One such treatment is the Merz Spectrum Laser. It uses laser light beams to bypass the skin and target the problem veins. As the laser energy directly attacks specific blood vessels and veins, those vessels constrict and naturally disappear. This gradually restores the skin’s clear appearance without side effects. At your comprehensive consultation, we will do a full, painless and non-invasive skin analysis. This can include aging, vasculature analysis, skin type analysis and collagen reading to determine if the Merz Spectrum Laser is your best option or if another treatment is more appropriate.
