Defyne Med Spa offers laser vein therapy to treat both varicose and spider veins. These abnormal veins are caused by venous reflux, which occurs when blood backflows, pooling and creating swelling and weakening. Spider and varicose veins may occur due to heredity, pregnancy, changes in hormones, weight gain, or from engaging in activities that require long periods of standing.
We can treat these abnormal veins with either a procedure known as sclerotherapy or with lasers. In some cases, both techniques may be used to achieve the best results. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a chemical solution into an abnormal vein, collapsing the vein to be absorbed by the body. Laser treatments utilize a small, handheld laser device that administers laser energy directly to the damaged vein to destroy it.
