For several years now professional cosmetic skin care has consistently grown in popularity. With more of the general public able to spend their hard-earned cash on cosmetic treatments now, many people have been able to focus more of their attention on physical characteristics that they can alter. As patients look for more ways to address any skin problems they suffer from, it’s important for practice owners to ensure that they can properly address the conditions patients want to be treated. An example of one such treatment is spider vein reduction.
Why Patients Would Want Spider Vein Treatments
“Spider veins” are an uncomfortable and often unsightly condition for those who have to live with it. Spider veins, which are similar to varicose veins, often create visible spider web-like patterns on a patient’s skin. In a society that puts a high emphasis on flawless skin, living with spider veins can be rather frustrating for those afflicted by them.
Though the condition is only an aesthetic issue that can sometimes be controlled with support stockings, therapeutic injections, and even lifestyle changes, many patients would prefer to treat and remove their spider veins altogether, if possible. This makes perfect sense considering that many patients have found that addressing their skin blemishes can directly impact their self-confidence and ability to enjoy their life – especially during the summer months when people are often dressed in bathing suits, dresses, shorts, and tank tops.
Considering Spider Vein Treatments For Your Clients
Whether you already offer spider vein treatments or you’re considering doing so, we encourage you to take a moment to evaluate the way in which you do so. Given that the #1 way to treat spider veins is by medical laser, your practice likely relies on a medical laser to carry out the procedure. If so, it’s a good idea to examine the laser and consider whether or not it’s the best option for your treatments. This is particularly true if the laser does not use the latest treatment technology, and even more so if your practice uses an older, multiple-part laser that is likely to overheat your patient’s skin.
A good rule of thumb is that if you can rattle off a lengthy list of potential treatment side effects related to using your medical laser, you need to consider upgrading your practice’s treatment tools. Newer technologies, unlike those in older medical lasers, are designed to be versatile and safe, allowing practitioners to easily treat a variety of patients and conditions while minimizing the risk of patients suffering from side effects. In fact, modern medical lasers are often considered to be virtually pain-free, minimally-invasive procedures that don’t require any downtime or general anesthesia when used.
