Easily visible, spider veins can be blue, red, or purple in appearance, and twist and turn underneath the skin’s surface. There are safe and effective spider vein treatments, whether you’re experiencing them on the face or the legs. For facial spider veins, the V-Beam laser is used. For leg spider veins, a solution is injected into each spider vein. In a short period of time, the solution causes the damaged vein to ease back into the body and fade from view, often without a trace, restoring the skin to its normal, healthy appearance.
What Are Spider Vein Injections?
Spider veins injections are known as “sclerotherapy.” Dr. Wechsler will use a tiny needle to inject a medication called a sclerosant into your spider veins. This medicine causes the walls of the vein to safely stick together. Over time, the vein dissolves and is reabsorbed by the body. This process can take several treatments for a complete result. Sclerotherapy is only mildly uncomfortable and perfectly safe when performed by a trained professional like Dr. Wechsler.
What Is the V-Beam Laser?
If you’re getting a facial vein treatment, Dr. Wechsler will use the V-Beam laser. The V-Beam’s vascular laser targets hemoglobin, the protein found in red blood cells. Skin cells in the designated treatment area are left undamaged, leading to a clearer, glowing appeal.* During treatment, the laser sends light pulses to the troublesome blood vessels, breaking them down and allowing them to be reabsorbed into the body. The deterioration of these blood vessels will reduce the appearance of the targeted skin blemishes.
