Varicose Veins / Spider Veins

Varicose Veins / Spider Veins

Spider Veins are small, red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn, and may look like a tree branch or spider web. They are very easily visible through the skin and are most often seen on the legs and face. Spider veins develop more often in women than in men and are seen more frequently with age.

There are a number of factors that contribute to a person who may get spider veins. These include, heredity, obesity, hormonal, contraceptive pills, hormonal replacement drugs, history of blood clots, occupation (a person who is standing for hours), increased pressure in the abdomen area, trauma or injury to the skin, previous vein surgery and/or sun exposure.

At Bense SurgiSpa, we offer a number of different solutions to spider veins. For the best outcome, combined treatments of injectables, lasers, and light treatments will help to reduce and diminish the spider veins. Treatments are quick and effective with no downtime.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee new veins will not form in the area, so without regular maintenance and follow up appointments, spider veins may return. Your skin care experts will recommend a home skin care regime and follow-up maintenance treatments.

Available Treatments

EVLT™ (Endovenous Laser Treatment)

EVLT™ (Endovenous Laser Treatment) is a minimally invasive ultrasound-guided procedure to treat varicose veins. EVLT™ uses laser energy, a high concentrated beam of light, on the targeted tissue. An optical fibre is precisely inserted into the vein being treated, and laser light shines into the interior of the vein, causing the vein to contract.


Genesis

GENESIS is an innovative laser treatment that treats those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, acne and scarring, excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine-line wrinkles. This procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen by gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface.


Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a photo rejuvenation treatment that can help correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, the signs of aging, hyper pigmentation (brown spots), birthmarks, unsightly small veins, rosacea and other blemishes.


Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy at Bense SurgiSpa. Dr. Michael Bense and Kristine Feaver-Noseworthy are certified phlebologist in both endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) for superficial vein incompetence (SVI) as well as ambulatory phlebectomies for visible large vein removal. We use both sclerotherapy (injection treatments) as well as laser therapies to eliminate these abnormalities.
