Spider Veins

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are damaged blood vessels that run close to the surface of your skin. Spider veins can develop anywhere on your body, but they most often appear on the face and legs.

You may be more likely to develop spider veins if you spend a lot of time on your feet or if you’re overweight or obese. You may also be at greater risk if spider veins are present in other members of your family.

Spider veins don’t usually affect your health, but you may not like how they look. The team at Bella-Sana Med Spa offers a solution that can get rid of your spider veins for good.

What is the Cutera xeo laser system?

The Cutera xeo laser system is one of the most advanced aesthetic tools available. The laser energy created by the system destroys the spider vein without causing any damage to the surface of your skin. The Cutera xeo laser can be used on all skin types and, despite its power, is a pain-free solution to your aesthetic concerns.

What can I expect during laser treatment of my spider veins?

During treatment, your specialist at Bella-Sana Med Spa places the laser wand over your spider vein and the energy created destroys the blood vessel without causing any pain. In most cases, the spider vein disappears immediately. Larger or wider spider veins may take multiple appointments and up to three months to completely go away.

There’s no downtime following laser therapy for spider veins, so you can resume your usual everyday activities following your session. Your specialist recommends you protect the treated area from the sun by using sunblock daily and covering up with clothing, sunglasses, or a wide-brimmed hat.

How many laser treatments do I need?

Your specialist at Bella-Sana Med Spa determines the number of treatments you need based the extent of your spider veins and your aesthetic goals. You may need up to three laser treatment sessions in 3-4 week intervals to get the best results. But once the spider veins are treated, they won’t come back, leaving your skin clear and flawless.
