What’s a laser treatment for spider veins?
Spider veins are caused by a malfunction of the veins due to weak or damaged valves that allow a large amount of blood to flow and cause veins to stretch. Spider veins may have red or blue color and are found on the face and the body, mainly the legs, and in some cases coexist with varicose veins. This condition may be due to heredity, ageing as well as hormonal changes during pregnancy. Spider veins should be regularly checked by a doctor because they may not just be a cosmetic concern but may hide a more serious blood flow malfunction. Moreover, spider veins on the face may cause rosacea and melasma, skin conditions that can be prevented or cured if spider veins are treated on time. Advanced laser methods treat spider veins successfully leaving the skin healthy and even.
