Laser Spider Vein Treatment

Right outside of Washington, D.C., Jamachi Plastic Surgery and Medi-Spa in Silver Spring, MD offers Laser Spider Vein Treatment to treat red, blue or purple spider veins on your legs.

Instead of using sclerotherapy, an injection that causes the vein to collapse and fade from view, Jamachi treats spider veins using the laser method. In this method, an intense beam of light is directed at the spider vein, which obliterates it through the skin. Typically, two or more sessions are needed to obtain the desired results.

It is estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.

A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal shifts
  • Weight gain
  • Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing

In some women, spider veins become noticeable in their early 20s. For others, the veins may not become obvious until they reach their 40s. Men get spider veins, too. However, usually they are concealed by hair growth on the leg.

At the cornerstone of Dr. Onyewu’s approach is creating an individualized treatment to meet your specific circumstances and goals. This customized approach will help you achieve the appearance you desire.
