What Causes Spider Veins to Form?
Spider veins form when blood pools in the small superficial blood vessels close to the surface of your skin. This pooling is typically caused by nearby valves that have become weak and are no longer able to effectively pump blood through the affected vessels.
Several underlying factors can contribute to the formation of spider veins and other vascular lesions, including:
- Physical trauma
- Hormonal changes
Spider veins are more common in women, but they can affect anyone at any point in their lives.
What Is Vasculaze?
Vasculaze is a popular non-surgical and non-invasive laser treatment designed to fade the appearance of spider veins, port wine stains, angiomas, and other vascular lesions.
How Does Vasculaze Work?
The Vasculaze handheld device uses a specialized diode laser to treat vascular lesions. The diode laser emits flashes of light that precisely target the pigmented hemoglobin inside vascular lesions. This pigmented hemoglobin is what gives vascular lesions their blue, red, or purple hue.
By breaking up the pigment, Vasculaze gradually fades the appearance of spider veins and other vascular lesions until they are no longer distinguishable from the surrounding skin.
Where Can You Use Vasculaze?
Vasculaze is safe, versatile, and gentle enough to be used on all of the most common spots for vascular lesions to appear, including your:
We customize Vasculaze treatments to meet your individual needs. This means that we can treat one area or multiple areas, depending on your desired outcome.
Benefits of Vasculaze Spider Vein Treatment
Vasculaze treatment comes with several benefits in addition to the obvious aesthetic ones.
Vasculaze has a very fine tip, which offers a high degree of precision. This allows us to deliver treatment exactly where you need it and to treat vascular lesions of all sizes. Whether you have a network of long spider veins winding down your leg or a single blemish on your face, Vasculaze offers a targeted, effective treatment option.
Quick and Gentle Treatment
Most Vasculaze treatments are finished in a matter of minutes because it only takes a few seconds to treat each vein. It may take a little longer if we’re treating multiple areas or particularly large spider veins.
Treatment with Vasculaze is also super gentle. Unlike other spider vein treatments, we never use any needles or incisions during Vasculaze treatment. Additionally, the pinpoint accuracy of Vasculaze ensures your comfort throughout the session.
Since Vasculaze is completely non-invasive, there’s no need for downtime after your treatment. This feature makes it easy to get in and out of our office without having to take time off work or rearrange the rest of your day.
However, there are some basic post-treatment guidelines you should follow. For example, you should avoid heavy exercise and direct sunlight for about a week after treatment. We will discuss all of these guidelines with you before and after your spider vein treatment.
How Many Vasculaze Treatment Sessions Are Required?
Most people need three to four sessions of Vasculaze to see their desired results. However, the number of treatments you require will depend on the size and severity of the lesions we’re treating. You can expect to see gradual improvements in the appearance of vascular lesions after each treatment session.
Sessions are typically scheduled five to eight weeks apart. This timeline gives your body time to flush out the broken-down pigment and allows us to accurately gauge your treatment progress.
How to Prepare for Vasculaze Spider Vein Treatment
There are a few steps you should take to prepare for your spider vein treatment. First, you should avoid tanning beds or products and excessive direct sunlight in the three to four weeks leading up to treatment.
You should also stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, NSAIDs, and prescription blood thinners, seven to ten days before treatment.
Can Vasculaze Be Combined with Other Treatments?
We can easily combine Vasculaze with several of our non-surgical treatments to address multiple concerns at once. Some of our other popular treatments include:
- Dermal fillers
- Wellness therapy
- Morpheus8 body contouring
- Kybella fat-dissolving injections
If you’re not sure which treatments are right for you, we can help you decide. When you come in for a consultation, we will listen to all of your cosmetic concerns and review your medical history to design the perfect treatment plan for you.
