Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins, also known as telangiectasia or venulectasias, are a common concern for many people. These tiny red, blue, or purple thread-like veins form a spider web pattern close to the skin’s surface and can appear on various parts of the body, most commonly on the thighs, calves, ankles, or buttocks. Despite having toned legs, spider veins can give an older appearance. Bliss offers a solution to this issue with the GentleMax Pro laser treatment.

How to Prepare for the Treatment

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun for 4-6 weeks before the procedure.
  • Avoid Aspirin and Smoking: Refrain from these at least a week prior.
  • No Tanning: Ensure you don’t have a spray or artificial tan.
  • On the Day: Avoid applying creams, lotions, or moisturizers, and wear comfortable clothing.

The Treatment Process

During the procedure, the technician will use a small handheld device to deliver laser pulses to the treatment area. Some patients describe the sensation as similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Thanks to the dynamic cooling system, any discomfort is minimized. In some cases, a topical anesthetic may be applied. The treatment duration can vary from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated.

Post-Treatment Care

Immediately after the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling similar to a sunburn. This can be alleviated with ice and aloe vera. This sensation typically lasts from a few hours to two days. Post-treatment, avoid extreme heat, sun exposure, and exfoliating or irritating products. If you spend time in the sun, ensure you use plenty of sunscreen. Follow-up appointments should be scheduled 6-8 weeks apart.
