At Nuance Aesthetics in Utah, we can address all of those tiny veins on your body that make you appear older than you are and that make you want to hide your skin. You may dress a certain way to cover veins on your legs, avoiding skirts, shorts and swimsuits. You may also take a great deal of time to cover up visible veins on your face with makeup. Instead of struggling with this insecurity, experience great freedom with spider vein treatment at our clinic.
Spider veins may not pose any physical symptoms nor harm the body, yet they are much more than minor inconveniences. The cosmetic concerns that come along with them are enough to send you on a desperate search for solutions. These veins are tiny and occur in circular, web-like patterns most of the time. They are most often red, blue or purple depending on the size of the affected vein. Although they are small, they are very visible on the skin, especially on those with very fair skin. They can be caused by genetics, lifestyle or disease. For example, if your parents dealt with them, you have a high likelihood of being affected by them as well. In addition, if you spend a great deal of your time standing each day or if you cross your legs frequently, you may see spider veins pop up on your legs.
You may have tried compression stockings for spider veins, or you may have tried to lose weight or walk more frequently during the day. While this can decrease the chance of more spider veins appearing on the legs, it does nothing to treat visible veins on your face and typically does not get rid of the visible veins that you already have. Instead, you need a specialty spider vein treatment that specifically targets these veins, helping them to fade from the surface of your skin.
We offer different treatments at Nuance Aesthetics that may be right for you depending on your symptoms and on the size of your visible veins. One of the most popular treatments for larger veins is sclerotherapy, which uses an injection of a special agent into the problematic veins to kill the veins, causing them to fade from sight gradually. We also offer laser therapy, which can be particularly effective for very narrow spider veins.
