Spider vein treatment can remove unsightly thread-like veins appearing just under the skin on your legs or face in shades of blue, red, or purple. Eliminating them will give you clearer, younger looking skin, potentially taking years off your appearance.
Spider veins, so named because they typically radiate out from a central point resembling a spider’s web, are usually caused by increased pressure to the veins, including weight gain and sitting or standing for long periods of time. Other factors include hormonal changes, genetics, and injuries.
While spider veins generally aren’t painful and usually don’t pose a serious health risk, many sufferers still seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. The most common spider vein removal treatment, sclerotherapy, involves the injection of a solution directly into the vein. Laser spider vein treatment, which is typically used for small spider veins on the face, targets spider vein directly with a focused beam of light. These two treatments, which are sometimes used in conjunction, both work by irritating the lining of the vein, causing it to collapse and disappear.
In Tampa, Bayshore Plastic Surgery offers patients a third type of spider veins treatment — the VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System. This minimally invasive, state-of-the-art technology generates a high frequency current that’s delivered into the vein through a hair-thin probe. Like sclerotherapy and laser treatments, VeinGogh destroys the vein, but it doesn’t produce the bruising and swelling that can follow the other treatments.
