Spider veins can crop up for several reasons. They’re often due to genetics but environmental factors like pregnancy, spending a lot of time on your feet, poor diet, obesity, hormonal changes, inactivity and sun exposure can also play a role. Basically, when you have weak valves that can’t push blood through the vein it creates a traffic jam of sorts. The blood gets stuck leading to the appearance of spider veins.

Laser/IPL treatment is the safest, most natural way to treat these unsightly spider veins. We pass a laser over the vein so that light energy can make its way through the skin. It helps liquefy the coagulated blood that is trapped in the vessel. Your lymphatic system then simply flushes it out.
