Feel confident in your own skin again
Inside our veins, we all have valves that keep our blood and vasculature running smoothly. Spider and protruding leg veins indicate damage or weakness in these valves This results in malfunction and prevents the blood from leaving the vein. When this happens, blood pools or backs up inside the vessel causing it to swell and appear closer to the skin, forming what’s known as spider veins.
Particularly with age, many men and women will deal with unsightly leg spider veins, telangiectasia and superficial facial veins. However, through the use of Cutera laser technology, our team can help make those issues a thing of the past by eliminating or lessening their appearance with spider vein treatment in Houston..
