Spider veins can make people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their legs. While the jury is still out on what precisely causes spider veins, most of the medical community agrees that spider veins can be influenced by genetics, hormonal changes (like what occurs with pregnancy), and weight gain.
Spider veins occur when a blood vessel becomes diluted by excess or trapped blood. They form in a similar way to a varicose vein; however, these veins tend to be smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. Although spider veins are incredibly common, they can still be a major source of frustration and embarrassment for men and women alike.
Fortunately, there’s a new treatment available at Medicetics that can help minimize the appearance of spider veins – and it’s called the Excel V laser treatment!
Medicetics (with locations in London and Cirencester) is one of two UK clinics to offer this revolutionary laser procedure to clients who suffer from spider veins.
Excel V combines two powerful laser wavelengths to effectively treat spider veins in less time than other laser treatments. The laser targets and kills off spider veins that are causing those purple or red marks. Once the vein dies, it’s slowly absorbed by the body, resulting in the fading of the red and purple marks. By the end of treatment sessions, clients will see clearer skin that’s free from visible spider veins.
Best of all? The total treatment time takes only 15 minutes. Most patients start seeing their spider veins start to fade after one or two treatments!
