Sciton Laser Vein Treatment in St. Louis

Problems with unsightly spider veins and varicose veins can leave you feeling self-conscious about your face or legs and may cause pain or irritation. Sciton laser vein treatment at Renaissance Plastic Surgery in St. Louis can finally help you rid yourself of those bothersome spider veins in as little as fifteen minutes.

What are Spider and Varicose Veins?

Spider veins can be found in the legs or may appear as facial veins, especially around the nose. Spider veins are typically flat and usually a dark reddish-blue color. They are called spider veins because they often resemble a web-like shape. Spider veins may also be treated with an injectable treatment known as sclerotherapy.

Varicose veins are often found on the legs and appear swollen or enlarged and raised. Many times, people suffering from varicose veins have pain or burning in their legs.

Where do the veins come from?

The cause of spider veins is not fully known; however, it has been linked to factors including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Jobs that require standing for long periods of time (nurse, salesperson, professor)

These veins are the result of restricted blood flow that causes blood to pool and swell in the vein.

How Sciton Laser Vein Treatment Works

Our expertly-trained, registered nurse aestheticians use the Sciton laser vein treatment to improve the appearance of leg and facial veins.

A laser is used to penetrate the skin, targeting the problem veins beneath the surface of the skin. The vein is safely heated, causing it to dissolve or collapse. Complete treatment of the vein may require more than one visit.

Most patients are able to resume normal activity fairly soon after their procedure. The appearance of the treated veins will gradually improve during the next month or so. Depending on the location of your varicose veins, we may provide you with special compression stockings or socks to help minimize swelling.
