How to Get Rid of Spider Veins

leg and facial veins

Spider veins are red, purple or blue twisted vessels that become visible under the skin—and they’re an extremely common cosmetic concern. While they typically aren’t painful, they can be unsightly and cause patients to feel insecure about their appearance. Luckily, there’s a way to get rid of spider veins and feel better about your skin!

Addressing Leg and Facial Veins

Spider veins can appear on any part of the body, but are typically seen on the face and legs.  Unfortunately, when it comes to these trouble veins, there’s not always an exact reason why they develop. At times, spider veins can become visible on patients who sit or stand for long periods of time or start a new medication—but most often, they’re just a result of genetics. Spider veins do not heal on their own, and special treatment is needed to eliminate their appearance.

Laser Spider Vein Treatment

how to get rid of spider veins

At Anders Dermatology, we prefer treating spider veins with a non-invasive laser called excel V™. This advanced procedure uses precise laser energy to target vascular concerns such as spider veins. Once the veins are targeted by laser energy, they are safely destroyed and absorbed by the body without harming the surrounding treatment area.

Most small vascular concerns can be addressed with one excel V treatment, but more than one session may be necessary for larger areas or more serious conditions.

The Solution to Your Cosmetic Concerns

The excel V laser can treat a wide range of skin imperfections in addition to spider veins such as rosacea, cherry angiomas and pigmented lesions. To find out if this treatment option is right for you, schedule a consultation at Anders Dermatology in Toledo, Ohio, by calling 419.473.3257.
