What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are enlarged blood vessels that have developed close to the skin’s surface. Spider veins, which are also called telangiectasias, are often found in the facial area and around the legs. They are red, blue, and purple in coloring, and can resemble a spider web in appearance.
How Does CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy Work?
Traditionally, spider vein therapy has been performed by process of sclerotherapy, which involves a series of injections. However, CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy uses state-of-the-art, non-invasive technology, which provides the same desired effect without the pain.
CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy emits pulses of light energy, which, when targeting the affected area, causes blood to coagulate within the vessel, eventually resulting in the vessel itself being absorbed by the body.
What Areas Can Be Targeted?
The CoolGlide is safe and effective when used on almost any area of the body. Even more-sensitive areas like the nose and cheeks may safely be treated with CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy.
What Does CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy Feel Like?
CoolGlide treatments are non-invasive and relatively painless. However, you may feel a slight stinging sensation in the treatment area.
Will I Need More Than One Session?
It really depends on a case-by-case basis. For more pronounced cases, the treatment works best when performed in a series of two or more treatments, spaced a week or so apart. Our team will be able to give you a more specific time-frame during your initial consultation.
What Is The Recovery Time?
You may experience bruising in the targeted area after treatment. This is normal and should fade within a week. You can resume light duties immediately after the treatment, but are advised to refrain from strenuous activity for the following 24 hours.
What Are The Benefits Of CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy?
Many people find that the appearance of spider veins significantly affects their self-esteem. Though the veins themselves aren’t uncommon, they most definitely aren’t welcome. CoolGlide Spider Vein Therapy is used to treat this condition, resulting in increased self-esteem and confidence.
