Leg veins, also known as spider veins, may appear based on a variety of factors – genetics, estrogen, and possibly progesterone are thought to play a role in the development of this cosmetic condition. Spider veins tend to appear more frequently in women and are particularly common in women who are pregnant, taking oral contraceptives, or receiving hormone-replacement therapy.
Getting rid of spider veins is safe and easy at SKIN 101. Quanta EVO Light is one of the most versatile laser systems on the market! It features Alexandrite 755 nm, Nd:YAG 1064 nm, and Nd:YAG 532 nm laser wavelengths. This wavelength combination allows the laser to create a synergistic effect during treatment.
It uses intense pulsed light (IPL), to target problem vessels. In the months following your treatment, the spots will fade as new skin replaces the darkened skin and the body naturally disposes of the visible veins.
As the laser goes to work, your skin is also simultaneously cooled, thanks to the EVO’s chilling technology. Treatment times are short, effective, and easy on most patients.
