Some women experience spider and varicose veins at different ages. While many women start noticing spider veins at an early age, you may just now be seeing them appear. The veins can present themselves in clusters of red, blue or purple, and they might show up on the thighs, calves, and ankles. These veins are typically small and can be caused by hormones, genetics, excessive sitting or standing, pregnancy or weight gain and weight loss. Varicose veins are veins that have become abnormally thick and knotty. These veins are genetic and get worse with age.
Why feel insecure about your legs when there is something you can do about it? Spider and varicose veins can typically not be prevented, but they can be treated. With laser treatment for veins, a laser is used to damage the vein in the affected area. Scar tissue forms and closes the vein. After losing blood from being closed off, the vein dies and will most likely disappear.
There are different types of laser treatments available depending on the size of your veins. Simple laser treatments are used for spider veins and small varicose veins. For larger varicose veins, endovenous laser treatment is the best option. A laser fiber is passed through a small tube into the vein. This treatment is far less painful than other treatments where the veins are stripped away, and with the laser treatment you will need less recovery time. The outcome of both treatments is very successful. Simple laser treatment has been used over the past 20 years and is safe and effective. Endovenous laser treatment is 94 percent effective.

After a consultation, treatment on your veins can happen within weeks. After treatment and recovery, you will be on your way to feeling more confident about your legs. Laser treatment can allow for less painful treatment options and a faster recovery time.
