Laser Spider Vein Treatment Orange County
What causes spider veins?
There is no direct cause for spider veins, but there are a number of factors that can make them more likely to develop, including heredity and prolonged sitting or standing. Hormonal changes and weight gain are also risk factors. Pregnancy is a common risk factor since it brings along hormonal shifts and weight gain – and spider veins often remain even after pregnancy is over.
What is the treatment like?
During the treatment, our our state-of-the-art Excel laser is delivered to the target area. The blood vessels under your skin will absorb the laser, which cause the vein walls to collapse and seal. This can result in your veins becoming less visible over time.
Our laser spider vein treatment in Orange County typically only takes about 15 minutes. The treatment should not be painful, but you will feel what is comparable to small pinches on your skin.
Following the treatment, your skin might be slightly swollen and red at the treatment area.
During your consultation, one of our medical professionals can give you an even better idea of what to expect based on your situation.
