Leg and Facial Vein Treatment

Effective leg and facial vein treatment available in Calgary, AB

Blood vessels on the face are difficult to conceal with makeup, and veins on legs can be uncomfortable as well as unattractive. Many people simply want them gone. The team at Vanguard Medical & Aesthetic Clinic brings contemporary and time-tested leg and facial vein treatment options to patients across the Calgary, AB area.

What causes visible veins?

The circulatory system contains about 100,000 miles of arteries, veins, and capillaries. Veins are designed to carry de-oxygenated blood back to the heart. Veins range in size from one millimeter in diameter up to 1.5 centimeters. Veins have a series of one-way valves that help to keep blood flowing toward the heart. Over time, these valves tend to work less efficiently. Blood backflows, pooling in veins. This stretches vein walls and pushes blood vessels closer to the surface of the skin.

Visible leg veins may result from pregnancy, excess weight, or prolonged sitting or standing. Veins often appear on the face from sun exposure (which thins skin), or as a symptom of rosacea. Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are contributing factors, as well as certain medications.

Facial vein removal

Spider veins on face are treated effectively with a vascular laser therapy. Light is absorbed by pigments in blood, heating the vein and destroying it. Blood flow is channeled to deeper, healthy veins, while treated ones shrink and dissolve. Red veins on face can usually be eliminated with several sessions, spaced about a month apart.

There is essentially no downtime associated with thread vein removal on the face, but you may experience some temporary redness or slight swelling.

Varicose veins treatments

Laser vein treatment is also appropriate for small visible blood vessels on legs. Larger varicose veins may require surgical intervention, although most procedures are now minimally invasive.
