Spider Veins Q & A

Northpoint Aesthetics

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are smaller, red, blue, and purple blood vessels that twist and turn and are easy to see through your skin. They’re most common on the face and legs.

Spider veins can be differentiated from varicose veins because they’re smaller and thinner and usually fan out, resembling spider legs.

Spider and varicose veins are usually caused or influenced by various factors, including:

  • Obesity
  • Genetics
  • Trauma or injury to the skin
  • Excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays
  • Certain medications including some oral contraception
  • Occupations involving standing for long periods of time
  • Hormonal influences during pregnancy, puberty, or menopause

What is Cutera XEO®?

The Cutera XEO® is an all-in-one advanced aesthetics laser system that’s customizable with an array of configuration possibilities. Dr. Ciocchetti uses the Cutera XEO system to get rid of spider veins and give her patients a smoother, even skin tone.

The laser delivers short pulses of energy directly over the vein. The blood vessels absorb the energy and begin to heat up, melting away the vein wall until it collapses. Your body then naturally disposes of the collapsed vein.

The veins aren’t a necessary part of your circulation process, so removing them is harmless. Following your laser vein removal treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise and try to rest, preferably with your legs elevated. 

The treatments typically take about half an hour and don’t require anesthesia. For safety reasons, your skin is cooled by a continuous cooling mechanism. Some veins may require multiple treatments and even ongoing maintenance.

What are the benefits of Cutera XEO® and laser removal of spider veins?

The primary reason people opt for laser removal of spider veins is cosmetic, to improve the appearance of their skin.

Cutera XEO can be customized for each patient to treat a range of skin problems and provide both corrective and maintenance treatments.

It’s safe, quick, and efficient. Ask about package programs and how they can benefit you on your journey to smooth, spider vein-free skin.
