Vein Treatments Q & A

Do I need a vein treatment? 

You may need a nonsurgical vein treatment if you have spider veins or vascular lesions that cause you pain or keep you from looking your best. 

Cataleya Aesthetics is proud to offer multiple noninvasive methods for improving your overall appearance and diminishing vascular blemishes. Vein treatments may also lower your health risk for conditions like varicose veins.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are a cosmetic symptom of vascular damage. The spider-like veins that you notice on your legs occur when small, one-way valves inside of your veins become weak. This weakening can cause blood to accumulate. Over time, this causes those veins to bulge.

Spider veins are generally benign but could worsen and develop into a more severe condition called varicose veins. Varicose veins are bulging, unsightly, and uncomfortable. Vein treatments may prevent the progression of your spider veins and help you avoid pain and discomfort.

What are vascular lesions? 

Vascular lesions are birthmarks. They cause permanent discoloration, uneven skin color, and blemishes that can make you uncomfortable with you appearance. While some birthmarks fade with time, many do not and may profoundly impact your confidence. 

Different types of vascular lesions include: 

  • Angiomas
  • Hemangiomas
  • Telangiectasia
  • Port-wine stains

Vein treatments, such as Inmode Lumecca® intense pulse light therapy and Vasculaze® laser vein treatment, can diminish the appearance of your spider veins and vascular lesions. 

What is Vasculaze laser vein treatment? 

Vasculaze is a laser treatment that provides noninvasive treatment of spider veins and vascular lesions. It uses focused light energy to collapse blood veins and capillaries that cause your blemishes.

Once the problematic vessels collapse, the tissue reabsorbs into the body, blood reroutes to healthier veins, and the unwanted, bulging veins fade away. 

Vasculaze treatments are useful for the face, décolleté, arms, upper thighs, back of thighs, and the lower legs. Typically, you can see optimal results after three or more sessions. Because the treatment utilizes the body's ability to heal itself, it takes time to see results. 

Vasculaze treatments only last a few seconds, and most patients are in and out of the office quickly. Recovery time is significantly less than with surgical vein treatments, but you may have to restrict activity for several days.
