Many people have a condition called spider veins. The condition is quite unsightly and fairly common. Spider veins are actually named after the web of blue and red veins that they consist of. You can get them as you age, and they usually appear on the legs.
They’re superficial, dilated blood vessels, and they’re very similar to varicose veins. The difference is that spider veins occur closer to the skin. A lot of people get spider veins directly behind the knee, but they can appear almost anywhere.
In one study, about 84 percent of a group of 1,566 individuals had spider veins, which shows how common the condition really is. The cause of the condition is increased pressure within the veins.
It’s believed that heredity is some of the cause of spider veins, but doctors don’t really know of any other causes. The good news is that spider veins can be treated.
What Is Photo Rejuvenation?
A procedure called photo rejuvenation is one of the most affordable and effective ways to treat spider veins. By removing the skin imperfections that cause embarrassment, it can restore a youthful appearance.
Photo rejuvenation uses a nonsurgical approach. During the procedure, gentle yet intense pulses of light emitted from the device pass focused energy into the skin. The intense light targets pigmented and vascular lesions, unwanted vessels such as spider veins, sun spots, and many of the conditions that are the result of aging.
The Benefits of Photo Rejuvenation
For starters, the procedure demands very minimal downtime, so immediately after the procedure, you can continue your daily activities.
Another benefit is the speed of photo rejuvenation treatment sessions. The treatments are fast and easy. There is also very minimal risk of infection and scarring. The procedure can treat your legs, arms, hands, chest, neck or face. Results vary depending on the severity of the condition.
How Much Time Is Required For Treatment?
A typical treatment session can take 30 minutes. It really just depends on the overall size of the target area. A lot of patients see great results after only one or two treatments.
