What are Spider Veins

Spider veins, medically known as telangiectasia, are tiny, visible blood vessels that appear just below the skin's surface. Resembling delicate tree branches or spider webs, they can display a spectrum of colors from red to blue or purple, most commonly on the legs and face. While these veins are primarily a cosmetic concern, affecting one's self-esteem, they are not typically harmful.

What Causes Spider Veins

Spider veins can appear at any stage of life but often emerge as we age or during hormonal milestones such as pregnancy, with women being particularly susceptible. Hereditary factors, extended periods of standing or sitting, or even past trauma to the area can contribute to their development.

Types of Treatments for Spider Veins

Laser therapy stands out as a preferred method for those looking to diminish spider veins. With precision, the laser emits concentrated light to collapse the unwanted vein, which is then naturally absorbed by the body. Treatments are brief, typically between 15 to 30 minutes, and for best results, a series of 2 to 5 sessions may be recommended. Post-treatment, some may experience temporary redness or swelling, but you can expect to resume daily activities immediately with this safe and efficient procedure.

How much does a spider vein treatment cost in Chicago?
The cost of a spider vein treatment depends on a couple of factors, such as the severity of the spider veins and number of treatments required. Please schedule a consultation with our team at Impressions, as we are more than happy to discuss the best treatment strategy for you.
How painful is spider vein treatment?
Spider vein treatment is generally well tolerated, and discomfort is minimal. Laser therapy involves using laser energy, and patients have described the sensation as similar to a mild snapping of a rubber band against the skin. This mild discomfort is short-lived and localized to the treatment area. After the treatment, you may experience some redness and swelling, which resolve within a few days. If you have any concerns about pain or discomfort during the treatment, we are here to discuss your expectations and any potential pain management strategies. Your comfort is a top priority for us.
How long do spider vein treatment results last?
Our safe and effective treatment provides long-lasting results. The treated veins gradually fade over time until they disappear completely. Laser therapy cannot prevent the appearance of new spider veins, so practicing good skin care and addressing any underlying risk factors is also essential.
