Spider veins are a bothersome condition that can afflict people of all ages. While many people undergo treatments like sclerotherapy to get rid of spider veins, others prefer an entirely non-invasive way to eliminate these red, blue, or purple, web-like veins. You can ease the appearance of spider veins and avoid invasive treatments by undergoing IPL photorejuvenation for spider vein removal.
IPL photorejuvenation is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that incorporates the use of high intensity light. It targets specific areas and can be used to treat large patches of skin or smaller areas. It is popular with patients because it leaves behind clear, smooth and healthy-looking skin.
Along with leaving behind clear and healthy skin, IPL photorejuvenation is also fast to recover from and is relatively simple. Patients say that the pulses of light when applied to the skin feel like being snapped with a rubber band. This procedure is also fast and provides long-lasting results. It is one of the most effective ways to treat spider veins today.
The IPL photorejuvenation procedure is performed in the comfort of our office in Delta or Burnaby. It does not require that you check into the hospital or surgical center for treatment. The pulses of light target the spider veins beneath the skin and encourage the production of collagen. It also causes the veins to collapse and to be reabsorbed by the body.
You may have to undergo multiple treatment sessions before your spider veins are eliminated entirely. However, you should see visible improvements in two to three sessions.
IPL photorejuvenation is a simple and safe treatment for spider veins and comes with few side effects. However, like all medical procedures, it isn’t the right option for everybody. Complications are highest in patients who suffer from health conditions. This is one of the reasons why it’s so important to consult with our experts before deciding on your own that this treatment can work for you.
During a consultation at Delta Laser & Skin Care Centre, our specialist can advise you if you can undergo IPL photorejuvenation for your spider veins or if you should undergo another treatment.
