For those who suffer from spider veins or broken capillaries (especially on the face or legs) it’s important to understand the source and cause of the condition. For the most part, spider veins and broken capillaries appear close to the skin’s surface – they are easily identifiable in red or blue colour and appear as “spider webs” or “tree branches”. Wherever they appear, they are unattractive, and laser treatment could be an effective option. Getting laser treatments for spider veins can provide noticeable improvement quite quickly, and with long-term results.
Spider veins develop when the capillary walls dilate. This could be caused by poor circulation, obesity, pregnancy, and even an inactive lifestyle. Broken capillaries are those tiny blood vessels that appear on the surface of the skin. These can be caused by several factors – skin irritation, body inflammation, and sometimes over-exposure to the sun. While there is a medical link between spider veins and broken capillaries, skin care specialists will typically address the issues in a similar way. For many, laser treatments for spider veins may be the best approach.
Professional laser treatments for spider veins
Laser treatments have proven to be very effective in addressing facial veins, leg veins, and broken capillaries. The good news is that laser treatment requires no downtime, while offering visible results even after a few treatments. At IGBeauty Studio, laser technicians use the Lumenis® M22™ technology, and have successfully treated a wide range of skin conditions – from varicose veins, to reticular veins, to spider veins, to broken capillaries.
How does the Lumenis M22 make spider veins disappear?
Lumenis® M22™ is truly an innovative approach, using light energy to make veins “disappear”.
The laser heats up blood vessels, closes the vein wall, and thus eliminates the appearance of the vein. Laser treatments for spider veins are very precise, as they impact a selected blood vessel, without touching any surrounding skin. For the professionals, Lumenis® M22™ is the ideal for spider veins, rosacea, birthmarks, ruby points, and angiomas.
Spider vein laser treatment is safe & non-invasive
Lumenis® M22™ is FDA and Health Canada approved, and effective for most skin types, including dark skin. For many clients, improvements are almost immediate, with optimum results after a few weeks.
Laser vein treatments with the Nd: YAG laser
The Nd: YAG laser is capable of producing near-infrared waves that penetrate deep into the skin. This technology makes use of a high intensity lamp, and a laser amplifier, to target specific areas of the skin. In short, the treatment heats up the deep skin tissues, and therefore impacts larger blood vessels and vascular lesions. In this way, deeper vascular lesions can be treated – like leg veins, telangiectasia, and hemangioma.
Nd:Yag Technology: How does it work?
With Nd: YAG, laser energy is converted into heat that penetrates skin tissue. The laser treats both deep tissue and shallow tissue, and serves to stimulate the natural regeneration of collagen. In combination with the Lumenis® M22™ technology, Nd: YAG provides treatment versatility with a host of skin conditions. Having minimal side effects, these laser treatments for spider veins are an effective and long lasting option.
