Once upon a time, you felt as if you had nothing to hide—at least when it came to your skin. Your smooth legs were unblemished and smooth, and you could pull off any pair of shorts in the world! But now spider veins have taken up residence on your thighs, knees, and ankles, and you have all but given up on ever wearing a cute pair of shorts or a bathing suit ever again. But you’re not alone in your exasperation with spider veins, and that’s why we offer spider vein removal in the form of BBL!
The Cause and Symptoms of Spider Veins
There are a number of different reasons why people develop spider veins. The main cause of spider veins is a malfunctioning valve. Your veins are responsible for carrying blood back to the heart, and when that one-way valve in the vein malfunctions or is damaged, it can lead to blood pooling in the vein and causing a bulging of the vein wall.
Hormones also play a factor in the development of spider veins, and pregnant women often develop spider veins. But they can also be caused by excessive standing or sitting as well as injuries. The fact is that some people are just genetically predisposed to develop spider veins. These intruders can threaten to compromise personal aesthetic and cause a great deal of self-consciousness, which is why it’s a good idea to have them removed.
BBL for Spider Veins
Spider veins are not something that you have to live with! BBL (broadband light) technology is especially effective at removing spider veins. This treatment uses light in order to make your spider veins disappear. Basically, we use specific light wavelengths to destroy the affected vein without affecting any of the surrounding tissue. Once the vein is damaged, it will close up and thus your spider vein will be reabsorbed by your body. This technology can also be geared to tackle and vaporize the melanin that causes a number of other blemishes.
BBL can be used to target the spider veins on your legs, thighs, ankles, and more. The treatment may come with a topical numbing cream to ensure maximum comfort. The process could last from a few minutes to an hour depending on the area and extent being treated. For the best results we recommend multiple treatments spaced out over intervals; we will help you structure a treatment plan that works to accommodate your specific needs and goals.
