Swimsuit season is coming, and if you’re like most people, then you probably want to look your best on the beach.
You may have been exercising faithfully to sculpt a bikini-ready body, but sometimes it’s not enough to make you feel confident.
Many people suffer from problems such as unsightly spider veins on the legs, which can cause insecurity when their legs are exposed.
Fortunately, spider veins don’t have to mean covering up all summer! Get beautiful legs again with these simple treatments for targeting spider veins.
What are Spider Veins and Why Do They Occur?
Spider veins are enlarged blood vessels underneath the skin that appear as purple or red lines, sometimes connected in a “web” pattern. While typically not harmful, spider veins can be distressing to those who suffer from them. The causes of spider veins are still unknown, but there could be a genetic or hormonal link to their formation.
Laser Vein Removal
This effective treatment uses a laser beam to target the vessels directly and break down visible blood, which is then reabsorbed by the body in the weeks following the procedure. Typically, at least two laser treatments are needed, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Minor swelling, redness, and bruising are normal side effects.
While laser therapy is the preferred spider vein removal method, sclerotherapy may be an appropriate treatment in some cases. Sclerotherapy involves injecting solution into the area of the veins. This treatment is inexpensive, but is more painful and requires multiple sessions.
The Bad News
Unfortunately, while the above treatments can treat existing spider veins, and improve them up to 70% or so, they can’t help prevent new ones from forming. However, that is no reason to decide against the treatment. Marked improvement in existing spider veins can prove to be a great confidence booster.
Leg veins usually require more than one treatment so if you’re interested in getting sexy legs without spider veins for the summer, start looking into treatments right away. It’s important to select a provider who has extensive experience with the procedures so you can see the best results possible.
