Most of us recall seeing little blue or red veins on our parents’ or grandparents’ legs when we were children. While they might have seemed strange back then, they become a normal part of life as we get older. In fact, people can start developing these veins as early as their 20s or 30s.

Spider veins are a common issue that affects more than 50% of the population. While mostly painless, these veins can be a big cosmetic concern for some patients.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins, otherwise known as thread veins, are a particularly troublesome condition, as they typically manifest in the legs and face. While spider veins usually don’t cause any pain, they can negatively impact a patient’s aesthetic.

These veins are usually blue or red in color and develop near the skin’s surface. They appear as swollen, twisted, stretched out, or kinked-up blood vessels. They are most commonly present on the thigh or calves of legs and face and resemble the appearance of spider veins.

At La Fontaine Aesthetics, we offer spider vein treatment in Denver from our award-winning, board-certified physician with the help of a warm and approachable staff dedicated to excellent service and patient comfort. The center is a luxurious private clinic and includes a full array of advanced diagnostic technologies, with four laser systems, including one for endovenous ablation therapy, to help ensure that the patient’s condition is accurately identified, and the treatment plan developed to produce the optimal outcome.

What causes spider veins?

  • Obesity

    Being heavier puts an exorbitant amount of pressure on the veins

  • Age

    While this condition doesn’t only affect older patients, it is known to progress over time. This can be largely attributed to the atrophying of vein valves over time. As a result, the blood stops flowing properly, and the veins fill up with blood.

  • Pregnancy

    During pregnancy, the volume of blood in the body nearly doubles. This can enlarge the veins and lead to spider veins.

  • Genetics

    As with many conditions, a family history of spider veins is a good indicator that one will develop them.

  • Sedentary lifestyle

    The act of sitting or standing causes stagnation of the blood in certain areas, ultimately leading to spider veins.

  • Gender

    Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and menopause increase the likelihood of developing spider veins.

What does the procedure entail?

Patients can get back to their normal activities immediately following the procedure. However, there might be some mild bruising and discomfort around the treated area. It is recommended that patients wait at least seven-to-ten days before engaging in vigorous exercise.

Standard laser therapy

This laser sends out a strong burst of light energy onto the vein. The light causes the vein to close and blood is naturally rerouted to another vein system. Over time, the vain being treated fades and is reabsorbed by the body. Laser vein therapy is typically the most effective treatment for smaller veins and spider veins.

Endovenous ablation therapy

This treatment is usually better for bigger veins, but it can be useful for spider veins as well. The process involves inserting a thin laser or radio wave emitting tube under the skin around the vein with a very small incision. The laser or radio wave changes the composition of the vein so that it closes and disappears over time. Patients will be numbed around the vein and most people feel only the slight pinch of the injection. After the procedure, the patient’s leg will be wrapped, and they can return home after treatment.

What is the recovery process like?

Laser Vein Treatment is a new type of technology that can achieve fantastic results without requiring surgery. At La Fontaine, several treatment options for spider vein treatment in Denver are offered:
