There is no doubt that the face is one of the worst-affected parts of the body when it comes to aging. From lines and wrinkles to sagging skin and loss of volume, signs of facial aging can be profound and frustrating. One common concern for men and women when it comes to their faces is the development of spider veins. These dark red, blue, and purple lines can detract from a person’s natural beauty and make patients look older than they actually are. Fortunately, modern cosmetic treatments finally provide the opportunity to rid yourself of spider veins and achieve the smooth, even, stunning complexion you’ve always wanted. Board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter and the award-winning team at Xage Medical Spa are proud to offer spider vein removal in Provo, UT to help men and women feel more comfortable, beautiful, and confident than ever.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins, which commonly occur on the legs, thighs, and face, are actually broken or damaged blood vessels. These branching veins can appear as dark red, purple, or blue lines just underneath the skin’s surface, making them highly visible and difficult to conceal.

What causes spider veins?

For some men and women, spider veins may not have an obvious cause. In other cases, certain genetic or lifestyle factors may be at least partially responsible for spider veins. Some of the most common causes and risk factors for spider veins include:

  • Obesity/pressure
  • Trauma
  • Sun exposure
  • Skin damage
  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy

How are spider veins treated?

There are several available treatments for spider vein removal in Provo, UT. Many patients can benefit from the convenience of laser vein removal for facial spider veins. During this treatment, which can take about 20 – 40 minutes and is made more comfortable with the application of a topical numbing agent, patients will receive gentle yet effective pulses of energy to the veins. This laser energy will force the veins to collapse, dramatically reducing their appearance.

How long does laser vein removal last?

While the results of laser spider vein removal may take several weeks to fully develop, the outcome can be stunning. Treated veins will be destroyed, but the appearance of new spider veins on the face is a possibility. If you develop additional facial spider veins, subsequent laser treatment can be performed to restore your smooth, even complexion.

Is there an alternative to laser vein removal for spider veins?

Dr. Porter is proud to also offer sclerotherapy as another solution for reducing or eliminating the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins on the face, legs, and other parts of the body. While minimally invasive sclerotherapy injections are certainly capable of producing compelling results, some patients prefer the noninvasive nature of laser vein removal.
