Spider Vein Treatment in Melbourne, FL
Spider veins are small web-like veins that appear on the body and face. Traditional treatments require surgery, but now you can eliminate those unsightly veins without surgery. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers spider vein treatment with the Cutera excel™ HR and Sciton® laser system, as well as other MedSpa services for men and women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins form when the blood backflows and pools inside the veins. Over time, smaller veins swell and burst. The result is a web-like pattern of bluish or purple veins just below the surface of the skin. The veins can appear on the legs, face and other areas of the body. Spider vein laser treatment works by heating and destroying the damaged veins. The blood is rerouted through healthier, intact veins.
Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment
Spider vein treatment with the Cutera excel™ HR laser or Sciton® laser safely and quickly destroys spider veins. No downtime is required. If your legs or arms are treated, Dr. Castellon may recommend that you wear compression garments to help with healing.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins can be a sign of an underlying cardiovascular condition, especially if you also have larger varicose veins. Dr. Mauricio Castellon may recommend that you be evaluated by your primary physician before receiving treatment for your spider veins. Spider veins can develop in people without cardiovascular problems, so most patients are able to receive spider vein laser treatment.
How Does Laser Spider Vein Treatment Work?
Laser energy heats the vein to the point where the vein is permanently destroyed. Your body naturally absorbs the vein, and blood is rerouted through neighboring veins. Dr. Castellon will evaluate the patient and decide which laser treatment, Cutera excel™ HR or Sciton® system is preferred based on their individual needs and treatment areas.
What Should I Expect From Spider Vein Treatment?
The technology behind the Cutera excel™ HR and Sciton® system allows us to precisely target the damaged veins. Applying laser energy to the vein causes it to be destroyed by the heat. You may need multiple treatments to completely destroy the veins. Most patients require two to three treatments scheduled at six-week intervals.
How Long Does It Take to See Results from Spider Vein Treatment?
You will see improvement after just the first treatment. With each session, your spider veins will fade more until they completely disappear.
