Spider veins are small red, purple and blue blood vessels that follow a branching pattern and commonly appear on the legs, thighs, ankles and face. In addition to creating throbbing, cramping and aching sensations, spider veins can also have a dramatic impact on your appearance, causing you to appear older before your time.
At Marcus Medical, we are experts at administering comfortable and effective spider vein treatment, permanently eliminating these unsightly blemishes and restoring your smooth and youthful appearance.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Though spider veins can occur in young men and women, they usually become more prominent as people age. The most common risk factors for developing spider veins include:
- Sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time
- Being overweight or obese
- Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause
- Growing older
- Hormone replacement therapy or the use of birth control pills
- A history of blood clots
- Congenital factors
Trust Your Spider Veins to a Specialist
At Marcus Medical, we specialize in permanently removing unsightly spider veins – restoring clear, smooth and beautiful skin. As such, we are proud to offer our discerning clients the following treatment options for among the best spider vein removal Los Angeles has available:
Laser Vein Treatment
The ideal option for small to medium-sized spider veins, our minimally invasive and virtually pain-free laser vein treatment works by sending strong pulses of light directly into the veins without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. The blood vessels absorb the light, causing the veins to shrink and eventually disappear completely.
At Marcus Medical, we use sclerotherapy for larger spider veins. During the procedure, we will inject a specialized solution directly into the vein using an ultra fine needle. Once inside, the solution will irritate the blood vessels forming the vein, causing a blood clot to form. The blood clot then turns into a scar tissue that gradually fades away over time, eliminating the vein for good.
What to Expect After Your Spider Vein Treatment
There is virtually no downtime associated with our spider vein treatments at Marcus Medical. Whether you choose to undergo sclerotherapy or laser vein treatment, you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after your procedure.
There may be some mild swelling and bruising in the treatment area, though it will subside gradually over time. Although strenuous exercise should be avoided, you are encouraged to walk around soon after the procedure to promote your body’s natural healing process.
You will also be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and minimize sun exposure to ensure an optimal result. Once you have fully healed from among the best spider vein removal Los Angeles has available, your veins will be permanently eliminated – and you’ll love your smooth and youthful new look.
