LASER Treatment of Spider Veins in London
We’re here for you.
If you sometimes avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — those small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you are not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.
Technically speaking, spider veins, or telangiectasias, are too small to be called varicose veins, usually less than 3 mm. Still, like varicose veins, these thin, thread-like veins are enlarged and non-functioning. Causes of spider veins are multiple and include heredity, pregnancy, hormonal factors, weight gain and occupations that necessitate prolonged sitting or standing. Their red, blue, or purple appearance comes from the fact that they lie very close to the surface of the skin. These small veins are primarily cosmetic in nature and can appear on the legs, face or chest. Although spider veins are rarely a medical issue, many of our patients seek to eliminate them to enhance the aesthetic appearance of their skin.
Many people have spider veins but they’re not sure what to do about it. Over the years, we’ve developed extensive experience in the treatment of spider veins on the face and body using the most advanced LASER available today, the Elite MPX.
