I have had many facials at different spas – and I can honestly say I have had some not so great experiences. Brianne was amazing and so was the effects of the silk peel!
Last but not least- the girls at the front desk are always smiling and welcoming!!”

Spider veins are small veins which often appear red or blue. They are found much closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. Often spider veins present like spider webs or small trees with tiny branches. Although a spider vein may appear in various places on the body, they most often appear on the legs and on the face.
There are many possible causes for spider veins. Exposure to wind, extreme heat or cold, and sun damage can definitely lead to spider veins or Telangiectasias. In addition to these factors genetic predisposition, aging and hormonal issues can also play a role in the development of spider veins.
Although more prevalent in women, men also are affected with this condition. Often men will present with a series of broken capillaries on their cheeks.
Compression stockings put helpful pressure on your veins. There are 3 kinds of compression stockings: (1) support pantyhose, which offer the least amount of pressure; these also often are not “gradient” or “graduated.” That means they provide pressure all over instead of where it is needed most. (2) Over-the-counter gradient compression hose, which give a little more pressure. They are sold in medical supply and drugstores. (3) Prescription-strength gradient compression hose, which offer the greatest amount of pressure. They are sold in medical supply and drugstores. You need to be fitted for them by someone who has been trained to do this. You must have these stockings before you can have a Sclerotherapy treatment. We can provide you with a prescription for stockings during your consultation.
At Laser It! we offer sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins. A needle is used to inject a liquid chemical into the vein. The chemical causes the vein walls to swell, stick together, and seal shut. This stops the flow of blood, and the vein turns into scar tissue. In a few weeks, the vein should fade. This treatment does not require anesthesia. You can return to normal activity right after treatment. The same vein may need to be treated more than once. Treatments are usually done every 4 to 6 weeks. You may be asked to wear gradient compression stockings after sclerotherapy to help with healing and decrease swelling. This treatment is very effective when done correctly.
Possible side effects include:
