Summer is just around the corner in BC. With temperatures already hitting the high 20s and low 30s across much of the province, many are anticipating a long and hot summer.

Are your legs ready for the summer? After months of hibernation, many people can be embarrassed to show off their pale legs. But some people deal with a more serious aesthetic problem on their legs: spider veins.

Spider veins are red or blue jagged veins that lie very close to the skin. They’re called “spider veins” because they often resemble spider webs.

The majority of those who suffer from spider veins are women. Many of these women are embarrassed to wear swimsuits during the summer months as a result of these spider veins.

How Spider Vein Removal Treatment Works

If you’re self-conscious about your spider veins, then there’s an easy solution: thanks to modern cosmetic lasers, you’re just a single treatment away from getting your legs ready for summer in a painless way.

Laser spider vein removal is a simple procedure that involves blasting away the superficial vein from beneath the skin. Some patients choose to receive a cooling spray prior to treatment that produces anesthetic effects on the skin, in which case the procedure is pain-free.

The procedure comes with virtually no risks or side effects. Some patients experience mild swelling in the targeted area, although this swelling typically disappears quickly.

After Treatment, your Spider Veins Are Gone

After your spider vein removal treatment is over, you’ll be able to drive yourself home and return to your daily activities instantly. It’s an easy outpatient procedure that comes with no downtime.

Once treatment is over, your legs will be free of visible spider veins. Some patients will need to return every 8 to 10 months to remove additional spider veins that re-appear over time.

With the help of modern cosmetic laser technology, you can be ready to show off your legs on the dock all summer long. Schedule your treatment today by calling Vancouver’s South Granville Laser Centre at 604-714-4011.
