They're commonly known as spider veins and clinically known as telangiectasias, but no matter what they're called, these small blood vessels visible just underneath your skin can make you look older than you are. Whether on your face, chest, or legs, spider veins can be lightened and in many cases eliminated through the use of spider vein treatments in Glens Falls.
Spider vein removal using laser technology can reduce the appearance of enlarged veins no matter what their cause. Spider veins, which affect mostly women, often develop during pregnancy, after prolonged sitting or standing, after injury, or due to genetics or other vein conditions. To treat spider veins, Dr. Garcia uses an intense pulsed light (IPL) system manufactured by Lumenis®, a global leader in laser and light-based technologies for aesthetic uses.
Dr. Juan Garcia offers plastic surgery at Glens Falls Hospital, Saratoga Hospital, or Saratoga Surgery Center. He also performs minor cosmetic procedures at his office on Park Street in Glens Falls. Request your consultation today.
