Spider veins are commonly associated with aging and excessive sun damage. They most often occur on the face, but can occur elsewhere, notably the feet, ankles, and upper thigh. One of the treatment options employed by Dr. Vanek and his staff is the Sciton® BBL™. The BBL™ uses a specific wavelength of light energy to target and heat the top dermal layers. The heating triggers the body’s natural healing response: the production of new collagen. The new collagen helps rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. Surface veins, like spider veins are also heated, disrupted and eliminated, reducing their appearance.
