Spider Vein Treatment in Boca Raton, FL
Spider veins are not typically painful, but they can be unsightly, causing a lot of anxiety when they are visible. Daniel Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, uses spider vein laser treatment to diminish and even eliminate the appearance of spider veins on people living in Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding communities.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are the tiny reddish-purple veins that appear just below the surface of the skin. Just like varicose veins, they are caused when the blood tries to flow backwards due to weak valves in the veins. When it happens, the veins swell and rise to the surface. Spider veins are not a health hazard or painful – they are simply a nuisance to have.
How are Spider Veins Treated?
There are several ways to treat spider veins, including laser technology and sclerotherapy. Dr. Man frequently uses the Sciton laser. This spider vein laser treatment is effective at treating even the smallest skin imperfections, including spider veins. With laser treatments, the surrounding healthy skin is left undamaged. Once complete, the skin is vein-free, smooth and radiant.
Is Spider Vein Laser Treatment Right for Me?
If you have noticeable spider veins on your legs and hesitate wearing shorts or skirts, spider vein laser treatment may be right for you. The best thing to do is first have a checkup with your family practitioner to make sure you have no underlying condition. Once clear, you can work with Dr. Man to have your spider veins erased for good.
How Involved is Spider Vein Laser Treatment?
With spider vein laser treatment, laser energy directs energy to the spider veins. This closes the veins and causes them to collapse. Once it collapses and there is no blood passing through it, the body absorbs the vein, and the blood is redirected to other veins. The veins do not come back; however, new spider veins can develop. It may take several treatments to achieve the look you want.
How is the Recovery from Spider Vein Laser Treatment?
There is no real recovery from spider vein laser treatment. It is important to walk immediately following the treatment to maintain blood flow. Results are not fully visible for a few weeks until the veins are absorbed. If several treatments are recommended, they are typically scheduled several weeks apart.
How Much Does Spider Vein Laser Treatment Cost?
The cost for spider vein laser treatment varies with each patient depending on the number of treatments performed and the extent of the area where spider veins are located. Dr. Man discusses the cost during a consultation in addition to the payment and financing options.
What Do I Do Next?
If you are considering spider vein laser treatment, we recommend you schedule a consultation with Dr. Man. He evaluates your skin, as well as your overall health and medical history. Once he finishes his evaluation, he makes a recommendation as to whether spider vein laser treatment or another treatment is the best option for you.
