Telangiectasias, more commonly known as “spider veins” are small blood vessels that are red, purple, and/or blue that twist and turn. They are easily visible through the skin, making them almost impossible to cover up with makeup. They are typically visible on the legs and face. Shore Vascular & Vein Center offers several treatments for unsightly spider veins. One of those treatments in the state-of-the-art Excel V laser. The Excel V laser uses light-based laser energy to immediately destroy the treated veins. It is highly effective in eliminating unsightly veins on the face, legs and body. Treatment duration depends upon the number of veins and areas being treated, but can typically be completed within 30 minutes or less. There is mild to moderate discomfort associated with treatment which lasts only seconds. Mild bruising following treatment is common. It usually resolves within a few weeks. Repeat treatment is generally required to obtain the final results. Not all spider veins are amenable to laser treatment. At Shore Vascular & Vein Center we offer all of the standard treatments. Dr. Gosin will examine your veins and recommend the best treatment for your individual situation at a consultation.
