What are spider veins?
Spider veins are small dilated blood vessels that occur close to the skin, and are usually found near the nostrils, on the tip of the nose, in front of the ears and sometimes on the cheeks. But they can develop anywhere on the body. As we age, our skin loses volume, the skin becomes more translucent and these blood vessels become more evident. Genetics can play a role and sun damage can exacerbate the condition. This is a cosmetic concern that does not include symptoms or medical risks.
Despite the lack of health risk involved, many people wish to remove their unsightly spider veins. If you have tolerated this condition for years, we can provide a non-invasive, non-surgical solution. Best of all, there is no downtime or long recovery process. This treatment is called Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and it relies on light energy to reduce the appearance of spider veins and other vascular lesions.*
