Located in Delta, British Columbia, Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre is led by Dr. Marcia Fleming and registered nurse Jennifer Sutherland. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how to remove your unappealing leg veins for good.
What Causes Visible Leg Veins?
When the body maintains proper circulation, the veins in the legs are either only slightly visible under the surface or not visible at all. However, when blood circulation from the feet back up to the heart is inefficient, blood can begin to pool in the veins, causing them to bulge and become highly visible underneath the skin.
Spider and varicose veins can also develop as a result of:
- Excessive sitting or standing
- Hormone changes
While having spider and varicose leg veins are common conditions affecting roughly half of both men and women, these vascular conditions are not often resolved on their own and can even get worse if left untreated. Having your leg veins properly assessed and treated at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre can help you begin your journey to clearer, more appealing legs.
How are Leg Veins Treated?
We commonly utilize laser vein removal and sclerotherapy to treat leg veins. Spider veins on the nose and face are typically treated using different methods. During your consultation with our medical team, we will evaluate your unique vascular condition and help you determine which treatment is best for eliminating your leg veins.
Laser Vein Removal
Although this procedure is commonly used to treat spider veins on the face, in some cases our IPL Photorejuvenation or VBeam laser treatments can be used on the legs as well. These two options use light and laser energy to gently heat the affected veins underneath the skin, causing them to close and form scar tissue that is eventually removed by the body over time.
One of the most popular treatments for safe and effective removal of leg veins, sclerotherapy involves a series of simple injections of medicated solution into the veins. This solution causes the vein walls to stick together, closing them and causing the blood to reroute through healthy veins. The treated veins are eventually removed by the body through natural processes and replaced by healthy tissue.
