Spider Veins




Spider Veins Are Treated Non-Surgically At Elite Medspa In Frisco, Texas

Age, pregnancy, and heredity play a large part in the development of spider veins. Elite MedSpa offers laser treatment and sclerotherapy to eliminate unsightly spider veins. Sheila Calderon, M.D., treats spider veins on the face as well as port wine stains, anglomas and rosacea with a laser. She uses a state-of-the-art laser specifically designed to vaporize these facial veins.

1064 Yag Laser, Varilite Laser and 810 Diode Lasers can all treat spider veins of different widths, colors and depth. These lasers deliver pulses of light energy, which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessels. The laser treats facial veins with an intense, but gentle, burst of light that passes harmlessly through the skin and is absorbed by the spider vein. The light produced by the laser generates heat within the vessel, destroying it without causing injury to surrounding tissue.

The laser is excellent for sensitive patients and for some veins that have been resistant to other treatments. Usually only one or two treatments are necessary. There is minimal pain and no bruising.

In addition to the laser, Dr. Calderon can also treat unwanted spider veins with the latest sclerotherapy techniques.

A newly introduced procedure called “foam sclerotherapy” can work more effectively in reducing the appearance of unsightly varicose and spider veins.

For years, sclerotherapy has enhanced the appearance and self-confidence of millions of individuals with varicose and spider veins.

During the treatment a mild “sclerosing” agent is introduced into the incompetent vein where it irritates the wall and eventually causes it to collapse. The body then naturally expels the vein from the body while blood is redirected through other healthy veins.

Several sclerotherapy sessions are involved for optimal results, and after each treatment the veins get lighter and lighter, and the skin will appear younger, clearer and healthier looking.

Now, with foam sclerotherapy, the sclerosing agent is suspended in microbubbles before it is injected. This actually helps displace existing stagnant blood within a vein allowing the full effect of the medication to penetrate the vein walls. Also, because foam has a greater surface area than liquid is causes faster shrinkage of the damaged veins.

Each treatment is done on an outpatient basis, and patients can return to normal activities immediately.

Dr. Calderon states, “Many people can’t get over the change in their legs and are thrilled to be able to wear shorts in the spring and summer.”
