Leg Veins Treatment

Clearing visible leg veins is a frequent concern for many women and also some men as well.

Although their appearance can span most any age and gender, leg veins appear more frequently in mature women.

Leg veins are also referred to as leg spider veins and the technical term for this is telengectasia.

These annoying and noticeable veins are located just beneath the skin surface and are usually mostly blue or purplish in color.

Leg veins can be linear, branched or in spider shaped pattern and can also appear on almost any part of the body, but are most prominent on the legs and around the thigh and ankle areas.

These should not be confused with vericose veins, which appear as large and protuding blue veins which are most likely best addressed by consulting a qualified medical practitioner that specializes in surgical techniques for the treatment of varicose veins.

Causes of Leg Vein Appearance

The causes for the appearance of leg veins are not precisely known but the potential factors likely responsible for their presence may be as follows:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged standing or sitting
  • Trauma
  • Sun exposure
  • Tight clothing

There can be many causes of spider veins or other superficial veins including heredity, pregnancy, excess weight, aging, and sun-exposure.

Clearing Leg Veins with Laser Treatments

Surgery is no longer necessary with the introduction of a new and advanced laser based treatment. There is minimum to no discomfort with the laser treatments.

It is a simple procedure and requires no pre treatment preparation. Very mild burning and swelling is reported at the treatment site which is resolved within a few hours following the treatment.

All normal activities can be resumed following the treatment though very strenuous exercise should be avoided. Direct sun exposure for prolonged period of time for 24-48 hours following the treatment is not recommended.

Frequently asked questions?

Is this treatment safe for me?

Leg Vein Clearance is safe and effective for all skin colours and skin types. A red aiming beam helps to ensure absolute accuracy for safe treatment.

What should I expect following treatment?

Immediately following your treatment the vessel may darken, shrink or disappear. The skin surrounding the treatment area may turn pink and become slightly swollen for the following 24 hours.

How many treatments will I need?

While for some people one treatment is enough, it may require more than one treatment to achieve full clearance of your leg veins.

Will my treatment hurt?

The energy is delivered in a smooth, gentle pulse to protect you from a sharp rise in temperature; the hand piece has a cooled tip which is in contact with the skin to reduce the amount of heat felt from the laser. These smooth pulse delivery and active contact cooling allow for the most comfortable leg vein treatment available. Mild pain may be experienced, but it is not recommended to take pain relief medication without consulting your technician first.

Why should I use laser therapy instead of sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is am excellent treatment for leg vein clearance, but injections can be costly and painful. Laser treatment at Laser Genesis is needle-free, less painful and results in less bruising than sclerotherapy.

Is this treatment permanent?

Like many other leg vein removal procedures, the permanency of laser leg vein clearance cannot be guaranteed. Some individuals have what are called feeder veins which fork off of the main blood pathways and feed these smaller superficial veins. When this is the case, treatment of spider veins will clear them on a temporary basis but they will reform or refill as the feeder vein is still supplying blood to the area. Surgery is usually the only option for permanent treatment in these cases. Many individuals will, however, experience permanent leg vein clearance as a result of our laser treatments.
