What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins are veins that are damaged or weakened, and become enlarged due to blood getting backed up inside the veins. Once enlarged, they become visible from the skin’s surface. Although they rarely cause pain and are generally harmless, many people choose to treat spider veins in order to maintain clear skin. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer non-surgical laser treatments for addressing spider veins using the Cutera Excel HR laser system.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your spider vein treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?
During spider vein treatment, laser energy is used to damage and close off a vein, cutting off its blood supply. Without blood flow, the vein will shrink and eventually fade from view. The Cutera Excel HR system combines precise laser energy with surface cooling to provide a comfortable spider vein treatment that does not require any anesthetics. During treatment, the laser device will be used to treat the desired spider veins without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue. A spider vein treatment typically takes less than an hour, but the exact duration of treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated.
Is There Downtime After Spider Vein Treatment?
After spider vein treatments, patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after their appointment. Some patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treatment area, but these effects typically fade within a few days.
What Results Can I Expect from Spider Vein Treatment?
After spider vein treatment, the appearance of the treated spider veins will slowly fade as they lose blood flow. Smaller veins will fade faster than larger veins, with some fading immediately after treatment or within just a few days. The treated spider veins are permanently closed, so the treated vein will not return. However, spider vein treatment cannot prevent new spider veins from developing in the future.
