Spider Veins in Washington, DC
Dr. Yousefi offers spider vein treatment for patients in Washington, DC, Arlington, Vienna, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Spider veins are caused by swollen and dilated small veins under the skin. When the pressure inside the vein increases enough to overcome normal resistance of the vein wall, spider veins appear. They are red-purple in color; appear in the thighs, legs, and ankles; and most frequently affect women of childbearing age and older. No matter your age or gender, spider veins can be embarrassing and unsightly.
Dr. Yousefi and his staff offer techniques for removal so you can feel comfortable revealing your beautiful skin.
How Is Spider Vein Removal Performed?
Special types of lasers are used to treat small spider veins. A highly concentrated beam of light energy is targeted to the affected tissue, with special precision and care taken not to harm the surrounding tissue. Laser treatments have been used for a variety of medical concerns during the past several years, and they are continuously showing their safety and effectiveness.
The number of treatments required will be determined during your consultation and depends on the size of the vein and your body’s ability to heal. Treatment time lasts from 15 to 30 minutes. During the procedure, the laser’s heat damages the vein walls and causes the body to induce a healing process. Once healed, the veins shrink and become less visible or, in optimal results, disappear altogether. Some of the spider veins that are a little bigger can be removed by injection just like a varicose vein.
What Can I Expect After Spider Vein Treatment?
Generally, there are no side effects, but swelling and minor bruising can occur. Due to only mild discomfort associated with the treatment, normal activities may be resumed immediately. It is also advised to limit sun exposure to minimize the risk of complications.
