Veins - Legs
Spider veins, also known as reticular veins or roadmap veins, are very tiny superficial blood vessels that increase in size over time and commonly occur on the legs. Spider veins are inherited, and may represent a more serious underlying abnormal vein circulation problem. Standing for long periods of time and standing on hard surfaces such as cement will often exacerbate a preexisting condition.
Spider veins always become more abundant and more unsightly if not corrected. The progestin hormone in women during pregnancy and menses tends to weaken veins and cause them to show in the skin more frequently than in men. Leg veins are genetic and found on approximately 70% of females and 40% of males.
ClearScan YAG is a safe and effective procedure that uses laser technology (Nd:YAG crystal) to permanently reduce or remove unwanted hair. It can also treat vein and vascular conditions, including leg veins and spider veins, broken capillaries, port-wine stains, warts, and toenail fungus.
