Spider veins are very similar to varicose veins, but are much smaller and visible due to being closer to the skin’s surface. They are found in women more often than in men, with typical causes being standing or sitting for extended periods of time, a sedentary lifestyle / lack of exercise, obesity and long periods of immobility. Though spider veins aren’t considered to be a medical concern, they can be indicative of a venous insufficiency that can lead to the development of varicose veins – especially if you’re already presenting symptoms such as heaviness in the legs, aches, cramps, restless legs and leg swelling. But in most cases, spider veins are often just an unsightly aesthetic concern. At Mole Check Clinic, we offer spider vein treatment to help minimise the appearance of spider veins.
While there are many surgical spider vein treatment options to remove these veins, they can sometimes seem like an extreme for most people, which is why non surgical spider vein treatment options are often widely favoured. At Mole Check Clinic, we use the Excel V laser for spider vein therapy due to its efficiency in treating the fine red lines on the face, credited to its dual wavelengths of laser technology. The 532nm wavelength is highly absorbed and is best used for treating the superficial veins, while the 1064 nm Nd: YG wavelength offers the strength to treat deeper and darker vascular concerns.
With a spider vein clinic located in North Fitzroy and another on St Kilda Road in Melbourne, Mole Check Clinic offers excellent options when it comes to effective laser treatment for spider veins.
