Improve the appearance of leg veins, quickly and easily!

Posted by on 3 March 2017

 

With the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been experiencing, it’s hard not to think ahead to spring and summer, when we can officially shed our winter coats and start wearing brighter colours and lighter fabrics.

Unfortunately, for some people the warmer weather can be daunting time. Many feel self-conscious wearing shorts or dresses because they are suffering from unsightly leg veins conditions, such as spider veins or reticular veins.

Spider veins are tiny veins that lie close to the skin’s surface, most commonly on the calves, thighs and ankles. Resembling a spider’s web, the veins can be red, blue or purple in colour. Similarly, reticular veins are also found on the legs, but are slightly larger and deeper than spider veins. In some cases, leg veins can cause some discomfort and itchiness.

A common condition

Spider veins and reticular veins are both common – in fact, it is believed that between 30 to 60% of adults experience leg vein conditions.1  Women are more susceptible due to hormonal changes but there are many other factors that contribute to visible leg veins, such as genetics, occupations that require long periods of standing or sitting, and injury.

The good news is that it’s now possible to treat spider and reticular veins quickly and effectively.

Laser light treats leg veins

At Gina’s Spa, we offer non-invasive treatments for the clearing of spider veins and reticular veins - with no incision, minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Gina’s laser technology treats leg veins with superior comfort. Our laser leg vein removal uses pulses of laser light at just the right wavelength to constrict the vessels responsible for leg veins, causing the vein to degenerate and visibly disappear. The laser light passes through the epidermis, only affecting blood vessels, so there is no injury to outer skin. The procedure is quick, lasting approximately 20 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated, and requires little to no recovery time. 

Look forward to the warmer weather 

Spider and reticular veins are common conditions that can be a source of self-consciousness for a large percentage of adults. Contact Gina’s Spa today to learn more about our quick and easy leg vein procedures that will have you looking forward to the spring and summer.
