IPL Treatment for Spider Veins

What are spider veins and reticular veins?

Unsightly veins are a common problem for millions of men and women. This problem affects all ethnic groups, of all ages and both genders. Estimates indicate that more than 60% of the adult population suffers from unsightly veins somewhere in the body. Spider veins are the small superficial purple or red veins stretching like a "Star" under the skin. The reticular veins are similar to the spider veins but are just a few mm deeper in the skin. Both spider and reticular veins are linked to increased pressure within the venous system.
Over the years numerous treatments have been developed to treat these veins and today, we have the Intense Pulse Light Therapy (IPL).
Using Pulsed Light technology one can remove unwanted spider veins and numerous skin imperfections using controlled levels of light energy in a pulse fashion.

How does IPL work?

This newer technique of treating spider and reticular veins uses intense, pulsed light that can be used to selectively damage or destroy abnormal veins including small spider veins and small vascular birthmarks. Unlike laser, the intense light therapy is more suited for vascular lesions slightly deeper in the skin. This treatment may be recommended when sclerotherapy or laser therapy does not effectively treat the superficial vein. Two to four treatments may be required depending on the number and size of the lesions.
