A New Treatment for Spider Veins

spider veinsYou are not alone if you have Spider Veins on your ankles, calves, thighs and even on the face.

Millions of people in the world suffer from spider veins.

The medical term is telangiectasias and the layman’s terminology of “spider veins” refers to the appearance of a spider web.

Fine branch-like shapes or fine, separate lines radiate from a dark central core.  These veins can be red, blue or purple in colour.

Why do you get spider veins?

Many different causes from being on your feet or extended periods of time – or even sitting.

Weight gain in general or from pregnancy or it may even be caused by genetics or a medication.

The great news is that these spider veins can be treated easily and quickly. Dr. Ebrahim is excited to announce her newest treatment for Spider Veins on the face and also on the legs.

Known as Pellevé, this treatment gently heats the skin tissue with a radio wave frequency.

The Pellevé treatment tip provides a steady deep warming with optimal temperature which targets the subdermal junction to allow delivery of heat to the dermis, subcutaneous tissue and deeper structures.

It offers a safe, customizable, easy to perform, reproducible and well tolerated non surgical treatment for spider veins.
