Getting Rid of Leg Veins
Unsightly leg veins can cause even the most confident person to dread summer shorts and swimsuits but getting rid of leg veins is actually quite easy.
The good news is that we offer two fast, painless, state-of-the-art, non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments for getting rid of leg veins at our Birmingham, MI Med Spa.
What Causes Leg Veins
The aging process reduces a body’s natural ability to circulate blood, especially in the legs where valves in the veins begin to pump less efficiently. The result is larger and more visibly darker blood vessels that create a backflow of blood, most often appearing on the legs as spider veins or varicose veins. These can appear on the backs of calves and thighs in particular, or around the ankle.
In spite of their unsightly appearance, smaller varicose veins and spider veins aren’t serious threats to a person’s health. Our Birmingham, MI Med Spa can easily get rid of spider veins near the surface of the skin and the treatment area will appear clear and more youthful.
Eliminating Leg Veins with Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy uses a salt-based solution that is often used to treat diseased spider veins or smaller varicose veins in the leg. Once injected, the solution irritates the vein’s lining causing it to gradually collapse and disappear entirely while the body reroutes blood flow to healthy veins during the process.
Eliminating Leg Veins with Ellipse Laser
The Ellipse treatment can be highly focused on smaller leg vessels or veins to deliver a perfectly calculated pulse of laser energy, which heats up the blood in the vein and ultimately collapses the vessel walls. The body’s white blood cells naturally reabsorb the vessel, while the surrounding skin remains completely unaffected.
The Ellipse treatment uses SoftCool™ the latest in cooling techniques that protects the skin surrounding the treatment area and creates a nearly pain–free patient experience when treating smaller vessels. Only mild discomfort may be experienced when getting rid of leg veins that are larger vessels, and the Ellipse treatment has been proven to minimize pain when compared to other Nd:YAG laser treatments.

Dr. Ali in our Birmingham, MI Med Spa will take into consideration an individual’s situation before recommending the best treatment to get rid of leg veins, which may depend on the patient’s medical history, any pre-existing conditions that might preclude using the Ellipse laser treatment, and the size of the patient’s leg vessels. Dr. Ali will discuss other available options including surgical removal of varicose veins in more severe cases.
