Laser Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins are also known as spider angioma and are smaller than varicose veins that most commonly occur on the legs of patients. Spider veins form red, purple, and blue patters that are visible on the surface of the skin.
Spider veins result from the condition of venous reflux, which is an obstruction of normal blood flow through a person's veins. This lack of circulation causes blood to pool near the skin surface, forming unsightly patches of veins that may have a tree-like pattern. Spider veins are not a sign of a serious medical condition, but many who are fed up with their unsightly appearance choose to seek treatment.
Atlanta Medical Institute licensed medical professionals treat spider veins using only FDA-approved lasers. Our lasers target the hemoglobin (blood) in the veins or capillaries associated with these conditions, effectively closing off superficial blood vessels.
During spider vein removal treatments, light energy from the laser penetrates below the surface of the skin and is absorbed by these small blood vessels (spider veins). The heat caused by the absorption of the laser energy causes the sides of the spider veins to collapse together, closing off the blood flow and eliminating the superficial spider veins.
How does Laser Spider Vein Treatment work?
During spider vein removal treatments, a hot snapping sensation that might be caused or some a discomfort might cause, However this is very common. Treatments usually last between 15-45 minutes. There is no "down time" which are associated with spider vein removal procedures, However there may be some "cat scratch" flakiness of the skin that occurs during the healing process.
