If you have varicose veins, spider veins, or other vascular abnormalities that detract from the natural beauty of your skin, we have a treatment that can eliminate them permanently and restore uniform, healthy-looking skin. At 360 Wellness Spa in Grand Rapids, MI, we offer vein treatment plans that we customize for each patient. We can use the power of laser light energy to safely eliminate these veins and improve your sense of confidence about the appearance of your skin.
A vein treatment is an in-office professional treatment that can remove unwanted varicose veins, spider veins, visible blood vessels, and vascular abnormalities from the skin. At 360 Wellness Spa, we use the Lutronic™ Clarity™ II laser device to perform vein treatments. This device is known for its ability to safely eliminate redness, visible blood vessels, spider veins, and varicose veins without irritating the skin or requiring downtime.
More than 50 percent of women have spider veins which typically increase in number with the aging process. These veins typically appear just below the skin’s surface and are red, blue, or purple in color. The most common reasons why these veins appear and become more visible are sun damage, poor blood circulation, injury, and hormonal fluctuations. Additionally, some people are more prone to spider veins because of genetics, pregnancy, or the aging process. While these look like veins, they are actually damaged blood vessels below the skin’s surface and typically pose no significant risk to health. While in some cases, spider and varicose veins may cause discomfort, the primary reason for their removal is typically cosmetic.
There are many benefits to beginning a laser vein treatment plan. Visible vessels and varicose and spider veins are unsightly and can make you self-conscious about the appearance of your skin. They can prevent patients from wearing shorts, swimsuits, and dresses or showing their legs altogether, but the good news is there is a treatment that can remove them permanently. You don’t need to hide your legs or use cosmetic products to cover those veins any longer because we offer laser vein treatment plans with the Lutronic™ Clarity™ II laser device that can eliminate them through a simple and safe treatment process. Post-treatment, you’ll no longer have to feel self-conscious about these veins but instead can enjoy a healthy, uniform skin tone, free of unsightly redness, veins, or vascular lesions. Other treatment benefits include the following:
The Lutronic™ Clarity™ II laser device uses high-energy laser light to target varicose veins, spider veins, and visible blood vessels beneath the skin’s surface. The laser’s heat energy shrinks and destroys the vessel, forcing any blood within the vein to relocate to a healthier vessel. Your body will eliminate the damaged vein naturally over time; as it does, you’ll see a gradual improvement in the appearance of your skin. The device is specifically designed to target vessels, redness, veins, and vascular lesions without harming the surrounding skin.
We make every effort to ensure a completely comfortable treatment experience. The Lutronic™ Clarity™ II laser device is known for its ability to safely and comfortably treat different vascular lesions, veins, and redness without harming the surrounding tissue or causing discomfort. The device features a built-in Intelligent Cooling Device™ and hybrid air cooling to ensure patients maintain a comfortable skin temperature during treatment.
Most patients need one to three treatments to effectively eliminate their spider veins and achieve their desired results. Once we evaluate the areas you want to treat, we can give you more details about how many sessions it will take to effectively remove them.
Smaller veins typically disappear faster than larger ones. The best results are typically visible within the first two to three weeks of the initial treatment. Your results will depend on the size and number of veins that you want to treat during your vein treatment plan. We can give you more details about what to expect at your initial consultation.
A laser vein treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes. You can schedule your treatment at the most convenient time and then resume your normal daily activities once it’s over without having to plan around any downtime.
One of the primary benefits of this treatment process is that the results are permanent. Once the Lutronic™ Clarity™ II laser device uses its laser light energy to destroy the damaged veins and blood vessels, the body will naturally remove them, and they’ll gradually disappear and will not return. However, this treatment does not prevent additional spider veins from forming, but there are some steps that you can take to prevent them.
One of the best ways to prevent new spider veins from forming is to exercise regularly to ensure adequate blood flow in the legs. Maintaining a healthy body weight, avoiding restrictive clothing that can prevent healthy circulation, and avoiding excess amounts of sitting or standing will also help prevent new spider veins from forming. A healthy diet, regular activity, and a commitment to a healthy lifestyle can all promote healthy circulation and prevent new spider veins.
If you’ve been feeling self-conscious about your spider veins, a customized treatment plan can make all the difference in the appearance of your skin and your confidence. We can schedule an initial consultation to evaluate the veins you want to remove, confirm your treatment eligibility, and then design your treatment plan accordingly.
