While they may not look so great adorning your body, especially if you want to show off your legs in a nice dress, but there is an easy way to take care of the annoying spindly veins with a Spider Vein treatment Brisbane.
We use a fairly simple treatment which will be used to help reduce the appearance of your veins as well as the associated symptoms.
When you step into our clinic, you’re in an environment with the best care and being treated by a fully qualified doctor, Dr Lindsay Watson, who will not only provide you with expert advice but also a dedicated treatment plan that suits you and your needs.
Treating Spider Veins
We find that there can be confusion between Varicose Veins and Spider Veins. Varicose Veins are usually green in colour, protrude out from the skin and are often painful for those who have them. Spider Veins are smaller capillaries that are a pink or purple colour, aren’t painful but look unsightly to those who are experiencing them.
At Define Laser, to help our patient take care of Spider Veins, we use a laser treatment that takes about 45 minutes on the legs. It heats up the small blood vessels until the blood flow is stopped and the walls collapse. The veins then gradually fade over 6-8 weeks.
Laser treatment is effective for spider veins and has less downtime and pain during the treatment than injectable options. Injections are used for varicose veins at times – our clinic uses solely laser now for spider veins as it is the best treatment option.
Areas of the body that can be treated
Most areas of the body can be treated, however the most common are the legs, nasal region and chin/cheeks to combat redness.
Risks are usually very minimal. In the lower leg region there is a risk of a creating a wound if a larger vein bursts which may take 10 days to heal although this is an unusual occurrence.
Common skin reaction is redness, swelling for 1 week and darkening of the spider veins for 6 weeks, before they gradually clear.
