Problem veins, such as varicose veins and spider veins, can be painful and unpleasant.
These veins are the result of venous insufficiency – that is, the inability of some veins to pump efficiently enough. Veins have to work hard, against gravity, to return blood to your heart. Over time, they can become irritated, bloated and discolored.
Risk factors for problem veins include:
- Age: The risk of developing vein issues grows for both men and women as they get older
- Pregnancy: Pregnancy raises circulatory demands, which can sometimes weaken veins
- Genetics: A family history of vein conditions makes developing them much more likely
- Weight: Overweight people are somewhat more likely to have problem veins than others
- Activities: Standing or sitting for long periods of time can cause circulatory problems
Sarapy Clinic offers (sclerotheraphy) laser vein treatment in San Diego to remove unsightly spider veins from all parts of the body, including facial veins, and large blue leg veins. Our sophisticated laser is designed to eliminate varicosities and spider veins both safely and effectively. It is performed in the doctor’s office by a highly qualified registered nurse or doctor.
Laser Vein Treatment: A Proven, Modern Approach to Problem Veins
Although there have been many types of treatments for vein problems over the years, laser vein therapy is the most effective available today. Laser treatment allows a precise pulse of energy to be introduced into the targeted vein. This causes it to collapse and seal shut on its own.
Laser can treat veins anywhere in the body in just one short visit to the doctor.
Laser is safe and effective no matter whether you have large leg veins, facial veins or other veins you are concerned about. Using the state-of-the-art Cutera Coolglide laser treatment, blood in the vein coagulates, destroying it quickly.
After treatment, the body quickly reabsorbs the vein and reroutes blood flow. Overall circulatory health is not affected by treating one or even several veins.
How Does Laser Vein Therapy Compare to Traditional Sclerotherapy?
If you’ve been considering treatment options, you might have heard of sclerotherapy. This is a traditional approach to problem vein removal that has been used for many years. A chemical is injected into the target vein that irritates the blood vessel, causing it to collapse.
Although both treatments can be effective, laser vein treatment is suitable for a wider range of patients. It is safe, fast and less likely to produce side effects. While there are many different approaches to conventional sclerotherapy, laser treatment can be used on virtually any vein.
Coolglide Vein Treatment by Cutera
The Cutera CoolGlide laser treatment delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vein which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past. No more painful injections!
