Spider Veins/Broken Capillaries


Diagnosis

Surface capillaries, also known as spider veins, form near the surface of the skin on the legs for a number of reasons: pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, medications, genetics and standing or sitting for long stretches of time. Age and sun exposure can also cause spider veins on the cheeks or nose of fair-skinned people. SkinSpeaks offers a variety of treatments to can get rid of spider veins and stray capillaries on the legs, face and hands.

Treatments

Laser Therapy

Lasers are used for spider veins on the face, which are often too small to "scler." Instead, the light from the laser targets and coagulates the problem blood vessels while leaving the surrounding skin unchanged. The number of treatments needed to produce the desired results varies depending on the type and location of the blood vessel.
