Spider veins (also called telangiectasias) are collections of small blood vessels that have developed close to the skins surface. Common areas to be effected by spider veins are the face and legs. They are often red, blue or purple in colour.
In the past, vein treatments have been the domain of surgeons or vein specialists. Laser Me & Beauty offer spider vein treatments utilising the GentleMax Pro, a leading laser device that is suitable for all skin types.
Also called telangiectasia, they are tiny enlarged veins, that are red/ purple or blue/ green colour. Often misunderstood and described as veins that have broken or blocked, they are in fact enlarged veins. While they are not a concern that requires medical attention, they can be unsightly and are often a cause for embarrassment.
Surgical vein removal or injections are not necessary to remove or reduce spider veins. Laser devices like the GentleMax Pro from Syneron-Candela are leading the way in the removal of spider veins. If you are looking for an effective non-surgical option to remove your unwanted facial veins or leg veins in Shoalhaven, Laser Me & Beauty have a solution that can happen in your lunch break utilising the latest laser technology.

How do spider veins appear?
The reason(s) that spider veins form are not known, we have seen reasons such as age, sun exposure and pressure on the vein walls from events such as pregnancy, weight gain and hormonal changes, breast feeding and menopause as contributing factors. A common skin condition called Rosacea, commonly leads to spider veins forming.

Will my veins come back?
Once Laser Me & Beauty have reduced the appearance of your facial or leg veins, most customers will remain clear for over a year after 1-3 treatments, four weeks apart. Due to the nature of your veins and deterioration through ageing or sun exposure for example, maintenance treatments are usually needed between 6 and 18 months.
