Unwanted veins and blood vessels may appear anywhere on the body including the face, neck, chest and legs. They may present individually as bright red spots or as multiple red, blue, or purple spider veins. As people age, these veins may even multiply and can sometimes be hard to cover up with makeup or clothing, which can be both embarrassing and frustrating. Spider veins are capillaries near the surface of the skin. Although they are similar in appearance, spider veins differ from varicose veins in that they can be found on various areas throughout the body, and have no significant health concerns. Spider vein treatment in British Columbia can be achieved using lasers that are specifically targeted to treat red or blue blood vessels.
At Cosmedica, we provide multiple light and laser technologies as well as other options for our patients to match the particular type of blood vessels to be treated. These blood vessels can normally be safely and easily treated under dermatologist directed care. Cosmedica offers laser vein removal to treat spider and varicose veins. With this vein removal technique, the veins are sealed instead of ruptured which commonly means no bruising and quick return to daily activities.
If you would like to learn more about spider vein treatment options, please send us an email or call us at (250) 598-3300 or (877) 598-3380. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Mark Lupin understands the significance of patient safety and comfort.
