About Spider Veins

If you’ve noticed dense clusters of reddish or bluish blood vessels on your skin’s surface, you might be dealing with spider veins. Also known as telangiectasis, spider veins are dilated blood vessels that appear just underneath the skin’s surface, and they’re often accompanied by rosacea and redness. Phoenix Skin and Laser performs a thorough evaluation and uses cutting-edge laser technologies to treat spider veins and improve your skin’s texture and complexion.

Causes of Spider Veins

Spider veins are essentially dilated blood vessels on the skin or mucous membranes. While they usually appear on the legs or face, they can also appear anywhere else on the body. Spider veins may occur because of excessive blood accumulation in the deeper veins, which leads to the dilation of small blood vessels on the skin’s surface. But you may also develop spider veins because of sun exposure, aging, genetics, pregnancy, rosacea, and other factors.

IPL Photofacial for Spider Veins

Phoenix Skin and Laser performs a highly personalized spider vein treatment that ensures safe, long-lasting, and reliable results. Our cosmetic providers carefully examine the spider veins, discuss your symptoms, perform a thorough facial assessment, and understand the true root cause of spider veins. We use a cutting-edge IPL (intense pulsed light) device to treat spider veins and restore your skin’s health and aesthetic appearance.

IPL, also known as intense pulsed light, is a non-laser source of light energy that can treat numerous skin problems, including spider veins. During an IPL photofacial, the cosmetic provider delivers a highly-calibrated wavelength of light energy into the spider veins. The light energy heats and then damages the walls of the diseased spider veins, making them eventually shrink and turn into scar tissues absorbed by the body.

IPL photofacial can be performed using multiple wavelengths of light energy. Our cosmetic providers calibrate the treatment to address the spider veins without damaging the superficial skin tissues, ensuring optimal safety and comfort. You might feel the sensation of a hot rubber band snapping on your skin, but it’s tolerable. Over time, as the spider veins shrink and get absorbed by the body, they will fade away from the skin’s surface.
