Spider Veins

Innova Wellness Spa can treat unwanted spider veins (also known as telangiectasias) without resorting to surgery.

According to the American College of Phlebology, 80 million people in the US suffer from venous insufficiency. Varicose veins affect 1 out of 2 people who are over age 50. Spider veins and reticular veins are milder forms of varicose veins. Typically, our patients seek treatment from us because they do not like the appearance of their leg veins, but they can also cause some aching or heaviness in the legs.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

There are multiple risk factors for varicose veins including:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Gender (varicose veins are much more common in females)
  • Physical inactivity

Non-surgical Varicose Vein Solutions

At Innova Wellness Spa, we offer 2 options for treatment of varicose veins: Sclerotherapy and Endovascular Laser Therapy with the Cutera xeo®. Your consulting provider will perform a detailed exam and offer a recommendation for the best treatment modality to address your individual needs.

Sclerotherapy

A trained provider will locate the spider vein and inject a detergent solution with a very small needle that will close the vein. The solution causes minimal discomfort that resolves immediately. Initially, your veins may look worse because your veins will become darker in color, but this is expected and resolves within approximately 3 months. There is no down time, but you will be given instructions to ensure that you achieve optimal results. 3 sessions are necessary to achieve up to 80% results.

How Cutera xeo® Works

An intense, focused beam of light treats the varicose vein in question. This laser heat damages the vein, causing it to collapse. Internal scar tissue closes the vein, which then loses its blood source and dies. The dead vein is absorbed by the body’s natural biological process.

Cutera xeo® Benefits

  • Customizable for personalized service
  • No downtime
  • No needles
  • No anesthesia

Sessions are spaced 4-8 weeks apart for optimum impact. The procedure is most effective when the skin has not been recently tanned and isn’t exposed to direct sunlight for extended amounts of time.

Are You a Good Candidate for Vein Treatment?

Candidates for vein treatment at Innova are:

  • In good health, without a history of heart disease or healing impairments
  • Have spider or reticular veins visible on legs
  • Does not have any blood disorders or history of blood clots
  • Is not pregnant

When Should I Be Referred to a Specialist?

During your consultation visit, if we determine that you likely have severe venous disease, you will be referred to a vascular specialist. It is very important to be seen by a specialist to prevent potentially dangerous complications of venous disease, such as ulceration and infection. These conditions typically arise after many years of untreated disease.
