WEST PALM BEACH, FL, March 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cutaneous laser vein treatment is, as suggested by the name, a laser-based non-invasive method for removing visible, diseased or cosmetically disturbing veins. During the treatment, a laser is applied to the surface of the skin on top of the vein in question, heating the vein and coagulating the blood. This in turn causes the blood vessel to break down and to, eventually, be removed naturally by the body's immune system, thereby causing the vein to disappear.
Who Can Benefit from Cutaneous Laser Vein Treatments?
Laser spider vein removal can help improve a number of conditions, including spider veins (also known as telangiectasias), hemangiomas and cherry hemangiomas, to name a few.
Spider veins are small, twisted, readily visible red, purple or blue veins commonly found on the legs or face. They are more common in women than in men, and the risk of spider veins increases with age. They generally do not cause any symptoms, but may cause itching or burning.
Hemangiomas are technically a type of benign tumor and present as red or purple lesions or nodules on the skin, sometimes with visible blood vessels. They may be present at birth and usually grow and expand over the first few years of a child's life. While they are often harmless and symptomless, the may bleed or cause psychological problems due to the compromised appearance of the skin.
On the other hand, cherry hemangiomas are most commonly found in people aged 30 years or older and present as bright red nodules. Similarly to hemangiomas, they are rarely associated with any symptoms, but may cause distress due to their disturbing appearance.
What Are the Advantages of Cutaneous Laser Vein Treatments?
There are a number of advantages associated with cutaneous laser treatment for spider veins compared to other treatment options, including, first and foremost, that it is non-invasive. Furthermore, patients generally experience very little discomfort, if any, during the procedure. It is quick and you can get back to your daily routine immediately afterwards.
"If the look of spider veins or other blemishes is bothering you, know that help is available," says Dr. Steven Tidwell, M.D. "Cutaneous laser vein treatment is not right for everyone, but it may just be right for you."
