What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are typically located on the skin surface of the legs, and are characterized by dark, reddish veins. They are caused by the blood flowing through the veins attempting to return to the surface, causing the veins to swell and become visible. Although they are generally harmless, they can be unpleasant to look at, particularly if the veins are large.
In addition to eliminating the appearance of spider veins, treatments provide other benefits including:
- Quick procedure
- No pain or discomfort
- Minimum number of treatments No downtime or recovery Permanent results
What to expect after
Following spider vein treatment, there is no recovery period, and you may resume your normal daily activities. It is advised to walk after treatment to facilitate blood circulation through the newly established veins and to aid in the healing process.
