Veins

Veins

Vascular lesions, including spider veins can form due to a backup of blood for a number of reasons including aging, sun exposure, pregnancy and hormonal changes as well as certain types of injuries.

Some patients will respond better than others and the number of treatments for each vessel may depend on the darkness and size of the vessel as well as the amount of activity the patient undergoes post-treatment. Vessels treated on the legs have a higher tendency to resurface, as the blood pressure tends to be higher. After treatment, a rust-colored staining of adjacent skin tissue, called hemosiderin, may appear from the breakdown of hemoglobin and will subside over the course of 3-4 weeks.
