What Are Spider Veins?
Our blood vessels work hard to transfer blood throughout our bodies. Our veins specifically work on moving deoxygenated blood back to the heart so that it can become oxygenated and sent out through the body once again. Veins have little valves that prevent the blood from flowing backward, but when these valves become weak or damaged, the blood can pool in the vein causing the structure and appearance to change resulting in spider veins and varicose veins.
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small surface veins that have been damaged. They commonly appear on the legs or face, and many people find them aesthetically unappealing due to their noticeable blue, red, or purple hue. They can be caused by a variety of factors, such as genetics, excessive sitting or standing, or hormonal changes.
While spider veins don’t bulge or typically cause pain, the presence of spider veins can indicate underlying vein issues, that is why we recommend having a specialist examine your veins to ensure there aren’t any underlying complications.
Our comprehensive spider vein treatment can help Michigan patients with problematic veins. When you visit us for treatment, we take time to understand your goals and vein health to provide a treatment plan designed to revitalize your appearance.
Excel V is a revolutionary system that uses a unique high-powered laser that’s designed to only target blood vessels and pigment with abnormalities to achieve beautiful, even-toned skin. The wide range of conditions that this treatment can address include:
- Facial redness
- Port wine stains
- Leg veins
- Keloid scars
- Sun damage pigmentation, and
- Venous lakes (purple lesions on the lips).
This treatment is noninvasive and nonsurgical which is why our experts highly recommend it. Excel V is not only effective on all skin types but also safe, quick, and easy — a single treatment takes only 10 to30 minutes.
Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, such is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. Excel V treats these conditions by administering a unique high-power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels until they are removed. At the end of treatment, the patient’s natural skin tone and color are restored.
The Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism to minimize discomfort and protect the patient’s skin. Most clients describe feeling a slight stinging sensation during treatment. Following treatment, pain is virtually non-existent, though it’s not uncommon for patients to experience minimal discomfort.

Injections of a sclerosing agent some vessels may need injection therapy of medication to close the spider vein. We use Asclera which is polidocanol and FDA-approved to kill tiny veins. Compression stockings are recommended for two weeks with a form of treatment.
Excel V has been shown effective at treating a number of conditions, including rosacea, telangiectasias, leg veins, port wine stains, and cherry angiomas.
