Spider veins are small, thin veins that is red/purple in colour and that you can see it just under the surface of your skin. They are named so because they remind us of spider webs, and are also sometimes described as looking like marble patterns.

What Causes Spider Veins? 

Spider veins in the leg, hand, and face are caused by unhealthy valves inside feeder veins, allowing blood to flow backwards instead of upwards toward the heart. Some of this backed-up blood can lead to non-functional veins that appear below the surface of the skin as spider veins. 

The Treatment

We at GLOJAS, our patients seek for this treatment for cosmetic improvement. Our method to reduce/remove spider veins is by using the latest laser technology. The laser transmits photons that are absorbed by the blood cells in the veins. This will generate heat that destroys the blood vessel. The damaged vein shrinks and eventually dissolves over time. Hence, there are minimum number of sessions are required. 

Benefits of GLOJAS Laser Spider Veins Removal

  • Minimizes any bruising or irritation of the surrounding skin.
  • The number of treatments depend on the quantity, color and size of the veins being treated, typically 2 – 4 sessions.
  • Feels like a mild to moderate stinging sensation. A cool air blow device will be used to minimize discomfort and protect the skin.
