Spider veins got you down? At Beautiful U, we know these vascular blemishes can be a nuisance to our clients. Appearing as thin curvy lines, usually with a slightly red or purple hue, “telangiectasia” or visible veins, are medically recognized. In most cases they don’t have any direct effect or impact on the health of the body. So, other than creeping up and causing an eyesore, they aren’t a warning for concern. Signs of telangiectasia can include spider veins, broken vessels, and vascular lesions/spots. Although they are most commonly found on the face and legs, these pesky buggers can be found anywhere on the body.

Using our Elite MPX Laser System, Beautiful U’s expertly trained Technicians cauterize these lesions to ensure clear, spider vein free skin. The number of treatments required to achieve optimal clearance of these vascular lesions is dependent on the size and diameter of the vessels, therefore a complimentary consultation is required. If you suffer with unsightly spider veins or vascular lesions, contact Beautiful U today.

Post Treatment

  • Discomfort such as swelling, redness, or bruising can be relieved with ice packs or cold compresses and acetaminophen.
  • For larger leg veins, some physicians say the use of compression stockings (30-40 mm Hg Pressure) for up to five days after treatment may increase client comfort and help reduce bruising.

  • You may resume your normal daily activities immediately, but avoid strenuous aerobic exercise until further advised. Walking is encouraged.
