They can affect people of different ages, genders, and ethnicities.
Spider veins can be treated using several options including lasers, intense pulsed light (IPL), and Sclerotherapy. You can schedule a consultation with Fountain of Youth MedSpa, and we will determine which treatment is the most suitable for you. In some cases, a combination of solutions may be required.
If you’ve never heard of Asclera before, now is a great time to learn more about a truly innovative treatment for varicose veins and other unsightly leg veins. Asclera is a prescription medicine that’s used in sclerotherapy (the actual treatment of spider veins) to reduce the appearance of leg veins. Asclera diminishes the appearance of varicose veins by irritating the vein walls, which causes them to close. This prevents blood from flowing through the veins, thus eliminating the bulging appearance of spider veins. It also works to eliminate the discoloration that’s so commonly associated with spider veins.
Asclera injections are incredibly safe to use, with FDA approval, and provide instant results. There’s also no pain associated with these injections, which means downtime is virtually nonexistent. In fact, you can pop into the Fountain of Youth Medical Spa during your lunch hour, treat your varicose veins, and walk out with gorgeous vein-free legs.
IPL Treatment for Spider Veins
IPL is a non-invasive remedy for spider veins. IPL involves the application of controlled pulses of light that selectively target and damage these superficial veins. After treatment patients can expect minor redness and itching, but this will be short-lived. There is no downtime, so patients can resume regular activities after treatment.
Treatment sessions last for about 30 minutes on average, and for best results patients may require 2-4 sessions. However this will depend on the size, as well as the number of veins that need to be treated.
