Do you spend time trying to cover up your spider veins? Are you self-conscious about how your bare legs look? Do you dream of a time when you can wear your favourite shorts, dress or skirt without having to worry about exposing spider or varicose veins? You may think they’ll never go away. But our talented Toronto medispa team can help turn those dreams into reality.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are those small clusters of blue, purple and even red veins that appear on the skin. They are usually found on the thighs, calves and ankles. This makes them very noticeable during the warmer months and can cause many women a lot of anxiety and doubt about their beauty and appearance.
Spider veins can become noticeable at any age, even as young as 30. For others, they may not become noticeable until much later in life. But the impact to your beauty and appearance can be significant.
There are several factors that can contribute to the increase in spider veins. The Elements Wellness and Medispa team finds that the increase in spider veins experienced by their Toronto clients is often caused by:
- Heredity factors
- Activities that require long periods of sitting or standing
- Hormonal shifts
- Significant weight fluctuation
- Sun exposure
Regardless of the cause or the age when you’re noticing an increase in spider veins, Elements Wellness and Medispa has a solution that can reduce their appearance. Our team is dedicated to helping you regain that youthful look and the confidence in your beauty.
Reducing the Appearance of Your Spider Veins
As we look towards spring and summer in Toronto, now is the perfect time to address those pesky varicose or spider veins. Don’t let these small flaws impact your beauty, confidence or willingness to flaunt your legs.
At Elements – one of Toronto’s premier wellness and medical spas – our experienced technicians use sclerotherapy to treat spider veins on the legs and face. Depending on the veins being targeted, our medispa team will use Sclerodex® or Tromboject®. These two injectable solutions are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of spider veins. When injected into the targeted vein, they cause the vein wall to collapse, stick together, close and fade away.
Sclerodex® is often used on smaller spider veins. This process involves the injection of a salt solution into the targeted spider veins using a very small needle. This relatively painless process actually irritates the blood vessel lining. This causes it to swell, stick together and the blood to clot. The blood vessels will turn into scar tissue and disappear over time.
Our Tromboject® injection – which follows a similar process – is typically used on the larger blue and purple veins. It can also be mixed with saline and air to create a foam solution. This versatile injectable works great on larger, more noticeable varicose and spider veins that cause a lot of anxiety for men and women alike.
You may also notice small collections of red veins that almost look like blemishes. For these cases, our Toronto medispa team will use an Intensed Pulse Light (IPL) treatment. Because of their size, these smaller, red capillaries cannot be treated with the injectables outlined above. Our experienced team uses the IPL process to destroy the capillaries and excess blood that has leaked into the skin. By controlling the pulses of light, we can treat the spider veins successfully without affecting the surrounding tissue. The result is a beautiful, youthful and glowing appearance.
Under the watchful eye of Elements Wellness and Medispa’s Medical Director Dr. Ali Adibfar, these treatments typically take 15 to 30 minutes at our Yorkville, Toronto clinic. This can fluctuate depending on the number of veins being treated and the treatment process recommended by the medispa team. During the initial consultation process, we’ll map out the veins on your body to ensure we effectively address the areas of concern. This allows our Toronto medispa team to identity the appropriate treatment, duration and number of treatments required to deliver amazing results you can be proud of.
