How to get rid of spider veins?

Self-love spans a wide spectrum that also includes your appearance. After all, it’s important to look as beautiful as you feel.

But what if your beauty is impeded by spider veins? Spider veins are small clusters of interconnected veins that are visible from underneath the skin. They are basically a byproduct of poor blood flow. 

While they do not bulge out like varicose veins, they aren’t very flattering and may cause mild discomfort. 

If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of spider veins, we’re about to introduce the most effective solution!  We are excited to be introducing the Cynosure Elite IQ system that will help with spider veins.

Common Causes of Spider Veins

What causes spider veins? 

Spider veins are products of malfunctioning valves in feeder veins. When this occurs, blood flows backwards instead of upwards towards the heart. As a result, some of the pooled blood leads to non-functional veins that appear as red or purple veins underneath the skin’s surface. 

Malfunctioning valves in feeder veins can be caused by the following factors: 

  • Hormonal influences such as puberty, pregnancy, or menopause 
  • Obesity
  • The use of birth control pills 
  • A history of blood clots 
  • Postmenopausal hormone replacement 
  • Hereditary aspects  
  • Conditions that increase pressure in the abdomen (e.g. tumours, constipation, and tight-fitting garments such as girdles)
  • Occupations that require a lot of sitting or standing for extended periods of time, such as factory workers, teachers, hair stylists, makeup artists, nurses, cashiers, store clerks, and carpenters. 

How to Get Rid of Spider Veins with Cynosure Elite IQ system

The discomfort and unsightly appearance brought about by spider veins can be alleviated by getting regular physical activity, eating healthy food, losing weight in case of obesity, avoiding prolonged periods of standing, wearing compression stockings, and elevating your legs a few minutes per day. 

However, if you want to see more instant results, you can supplement your efforts by getting Cynosure Elite IQ system. If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of spider veins, this revolutionary treatment is the solution you’ve been looking for. 

Cynosure Elite + System is a multi-application procedure that delivers power and precision to eliminate spider veins, facial redness, and rosacea.

Cynosure Elite IQ System: How It Works

Rather than going under the knife to achieve your beauty goals, Cynosure Elite IQ System offers a non-invasive and non-surgical solution for getting rid of spider veins. 

The procedure is driven by a laser handpiece that emits light energy onto your skin. Consequently, the laser gets absorbed by the blood within the targeted vein while leaving the surrounding skin unscathed. 

Once the blood absorbs the light energy, the vein heats up, causing the vessel lining to constrict and ultimately fade from view. As a result, your arms or legs will be clear, beautiful, and free from the hassle of spider veins. 

No incisions, no discomfort, and no lengthy recovery period—just phenomenal long-lasting results within a 30-minute session.
