Many people feel a bit embarrassed about their spider veins. If you are one of the many, consider our laser vein removal treatment. The laser breaks unsightly veins down resulting in an overall improved skin tone. Get rid of your varicose and spider veins with Lumenis Splendor X™ laser vein removal treatments – it’s an easy, non-invasive treatment and swift recovery process.
What is Lumenis Splendor X Laser Vein Removal?
Lumenis Spendor X™ laser vein removal machines are relatively new. They were first introduced by Lumenis; a company that specializes in minimally invasive clinical solutions for the surgical, ophthalmology, and aesthetics market.
The vein removal machine has a large power output of 250w. It has an impressive vein removal rate for nearly everyone.
The energy emitted by the Splendor X™ is selectively absorbed by the red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood vessel. The heat energy from the laser essentially damages the broken blood vessel so that your body stops using it. The blood diverts to other, healthier veins.
Once the laser has damaged the varicose vein, it gets broken down and reabsorbed into the body by surrounding tissue. Thus, it is no longer visible. After one or two weeks, the vein will disappear as if it was never there.

What is laser vein removal for?
The most popular use for laser vein removal is for spider veins. Spider veins are web-like networks of thin red lines of blood vessels that appear on your legs, thighs, and face. Aside from being aesthetically displeasing, spider veins are usually harmless, although some women experience aching, pain, or a burning sensation felt around spider vein areas.
Causes of spider veins can be heredity, but they may also result from certain occupations or activities that require extensive periods of sitting or standing. Other causes include pregnancy, hormonal shifts or weight fluctuations.
Varicose veins are a common problem, though not everyone is a candidate for Lumenis SpendorX™ laser vein spider removal treatments. We will discuss if laser therapy is right for you, or refer you back to your doctor who may want to remove the vein altogether.
