Remove Spider Veins on Thighs & Spider Veins on Your Face at Skinny Beach

People nowadays can agree on very few things. To find a consensus opinion is akin to finding a lost treasure or hidden artifact. However, when it comes to spider veins, everyone can agree on one thing: they got to go! Luckily, the experts at Skinny Beach in San Diego are ready to remove spider veins on your legs, face and everywhere in between.


What are Spider Veins?

Spider Veins are blood vessels that are easily visible through the skin. These thin blood vessels are usually colored red, blue and purple and occur most often on the face and legs, specifically the thighs. Spider Veins do not have much harm to your health, and removal is usually a purely aesthetic decision.


What Causes Spider Veins?

In most cases, Spider Viens are something that is passed down from your parents. However, there are a few other contributing factors to Spider Veins on the thighs and face. Spider Veins show up as you age and are much more common in men, and can often be the result of being at a job that requires a lot of standing. Some other possible contributing factors include pregnancy, menopause, and birth control pills.


How Does Skinny Beach Treat Spider Veins?

Skinny Beach uses the Quanta Light 4V laser to safely and effectively treat those ugly veins that can appear on faces and legs.  Medically known as spider veins, or “telangiectasias,” these vascular abnormalities are unsightly and often difficult to treat with conventional methods like IPL, and even harder to conceal.  A long-pulsed laser is the most effective technique available to “zap” such vein malformations. Most patients find the procedure comfortable with or without numbing cream.

Spider Vein Removal Questions


How are spider veins removed by laser?

Spider veins, or “telangiectasias” are a common nuisance seen as we age and can occur about the face and legs.  Many people first notice them on the sides or base of the nose, but they can also occur on the cheeks and chin.  Lasers can be used to shatter the veins microscopically, whereby they can be absorbed by the body and eliminated.  This process usually is successful in one to two treatments, but occasionally a third treatment is needed.  

How long does this process take?

Each session takes no longer than one hour, and the overall process can take several months depending on the amount of spider veins present.* Generally, 2 to 6 sessions are needed to see notable results.* These treatments are spaced out 4-6 weeks apart.  Spider veins on the legs that are treated with laser need to be compressed with support garments which are sold or provided to our patients at Skinny Beach.  These are very comfortable and attractive looking medical grade versions of yoga pants!

Is this process painful?

Some patients report a tingling sensation as the laser zaps the affected area, but it should not be painful. Numbing cream is available to reduce discomfort, if any.  A blast of cold air anesthetizes the spider veins, masking any discomfort that might occur.

Why should I get my spider veins removed?

Spider vein removal is purely an aesthetic decision. Most people get them removed because they long for the appearance of smooth legs. Spider veins are rarely serious, but may cause itching or throbbing, which is another reason some people choose to get them removed.  The earlier you treat spider veins the better, as they always worsen and enlarge as you age.  Older spider veins and larger ones are obviously harder to treat.

Are results permanent?

Spider vein removal on the face is often immediate.  Leg spider veins often return, but smaller.  Subsequent treatments finish the job.  Results should be long-lasting assuming patients follow proper aftercare-wearing your stockings and getting more exercise.* After each treatment, you will find that the area will be red and bruised at times. The majority of spider veins disappear after 2-4 months.*
