Vein Therapy Torrance
Vein therapy is done outside of your skin, and it is used to treat spider veins and varicose veins. Varicose veins are painful, large, swollen and protruding veins, while spider veins are usually smaller, superficial and do not cause pain. Both varicose and spider veins usually occur on legs and feet. Both are considered to be cosmetic vein problems, because they are unsightly, uncomfortable and sometimes cause pain and itching. These problematic veins can get in the way of your daily life.
The best way to treat varicose and spider veins is through minimally invasive therapy and lifestyle change. At Skin Works Medical Spa, we offer several treatments for these conditions: Endovenous Ablation, Sclerotherapy and Cutera Laser treatments.
Endovenous Ablation is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency to treat varicose veins and venous reflux. It is used to provide relief to the related symptoms such as pain, itching, swelling, skin irritation and inflammation, but it can also be used for cosmetic purposes. It leaves virtually no scars.
Sclerotherapy effectively treats spider veins and small varicose veins. It works by injecting the chemical solution into a vein. This causes damage to the vein and makes it shrink and eventually disappear. There is little to no downtime after sclerotherapy. Most people return to their normal activities the same day.
The Cutera Laser uses the gentle power of laser to safely and effectively reduce or eliminate the appearance of blood vessels ranging from small spider veins to deep blue reticular veins. It is most commonly used to treat spider veins.
Usually, more than one vein treatment is recommended in order to achieve the best results.
