What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are an unsightly cosmetic concern that medical professionals are unsure of their precise cause. It’s speculated that their development is primarily due to weakened or damaged vein valves. Every day, blood is circulating throughout your body. When blood reaches your lower extremities, greater energy output is required to push the blood back up to your heart. This energy output is needed because of gravity’s force, which your blood needs to work against. Your veins consist of valves that help prevent your blood from slipping backward. It’s possible for these valves to become damaged, resulting in a pooling of blood in your veins, which causes them to expand and protrude. The result is spider veins. While medical professionals aren’t certain of the precise cause for spider veins, certain factors can potentially lead to their development, including:
Who is a good Spider Vein candidate?
If you are struggling with your spider veins, you will be an excellent candidate for spider vein treatment at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics. The treatment can be performed on men and women of any skin tone. Your spider vein treatment provider will review your spider veins, medical history and currently prescribed medications during an initial consultation to ensure candidacy. If you are taking blood thinners, you should stop taking them for several weeks before and after your spider vein treatment. It’s also key to have realistic expectations if you are considering the treatment. Spider vein treatment is often performed on the legs, where they are commonly found, but the treatment is also successful at treating broken capillaries found on the face. Consultation is required.

What to Expect
With the Nd:YAG 1064nm laser approach, we use precisely calculated pulses of laser energy, exactly directed to the vessel being treated. This causes the blood inside the vessel to heat up; causing the wall of the vessel to collapse. The vessel is reabsorbed naturally by your white blood cells. The skin surrounding the vessel is not affected by the treatment.
Spider vein treatment with the Lutronic Clarity II is a highly reliable means for ridding your body of the unsightly cosmetic concern. The Lutronic Clarity II laser system utilizes two unique technologies: IntelliTrak Technology and Temperature Sensing. The IntelliTrak Technology ensures that your spider vein removal will be consistent as the energy is delivered at a constant speed, regardless of how quickly your treatment provider moves the handheld laser device. By incorporating the Temperature Sensing technology, your provider will be able to consistently measure your skin’s surface temperature levels, furthering the safety and efficacy of your spider vein treatment.
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments.

BenEfits OF PRP
The stronger and thicker your skin is, the better protected the deeper layers of your skin are from outside irritants. A strong skin barrier also helps to retain moisture. PRP can help promote collagen.
Collagen is essential for tight, firm skin. As you age, your skin starts to sag and become noticeably thin and gaunt. Collagen plumps up the skin. Some people may use a PRP facial to plump up their lips. Others use it to re-contour their cheeks without the need for an invasive medical procedure. Regardless of your skin insecurities, be sure to ask how PRP can help you achieve your ideal aesthetic.
Lines and wrinkles are among the most common reasons people seek a PRP facial. Old skin cells are recycled and new skin cells, collagen, and elastin are formed. The appearance of deeper folds is also diminished as hollow areas of your face are plumped up.
Around the age of 25, your body’s collagen production rate drops drastically. It continues to decline at a significant rate for the rest of your life unless you do something to stimulate it. PRP help promote and grow new, stronger, healthier collagen
