Schedule a consultation online or by phone today to learn more and to begin a path toward clear skin.
Your veins are the portion of your circulatory system that carries deoxygenated blood back to your heart. They are one-way vessels, and that singular direction is possible due to a series of tiny valves within each vein.
These valves prevent blood from flowing backward in your veins. When one or more of these valves become damaged, blood will pool in the affected area. That causes your veins to enlarge, often making them visible through the surface of your skin.
Spider veins can occur in many areas of your body, but they are most common on your face and legs. They appear as a small cluster of fine lines branching out in a circle, similar to a spider’s web. Spider veins can be red, blue, or purple in color.
It’s possible to have just one cluster of spider veins or several in different areas of your body. They are usually small, but when several are close together they can mar the appearance of your skin.
Left untreated spider veins will usually not resolve themselves. Your body will simply re-route your blood to nearby healthy veins, so spider veins are not harmful or uncomfortable.
Radiofrequency treatments are a great way to address spider veins. The TempSure Envi system uses radiofrequency energy to heat the vein walls. This creates a coagulation effect, essentially causing the vessel walls to collapse.
Your body then absorbs the destroyed tissue and old blood and processes that debris through your lymphatic system.
It takes time for your body to rid itself of the treated vein walls and accumulated blood. Expect to see your spider veins becoming less visible in the weeks following your treatment. After a couple of months, you’ll see the full results and can decide if additional treatment is needed to fully clear the area.
Everyone’s body reacts a bit differently to TempSure Envi treatments, but your practitioner can estimate the number of treatments you’ll need during your initial consultation. Call or visit the online booking page today to get started.
