Vein Therapy; for broken capillaries and spider veins
Unwanted veins are enlarged, dilated or broken veins that are visible through the skin. They can occur anywhere on the body, and are caused by various factors, including age, sun damage, pregnancy, and genetics.
At SoLux Med Spa in Chicago, different medical techniques are used to erase or remove unwanted veins, depending on the specific needs of the patient. Schedule a consultation to determine the best treatment for you.
EVLT™ - EndoVenous Laser Treatment
EVLT™, or endovenous laser treatment, is currently one of the best available techniques for eliminating varicose veins. Often considered the “gold standard” in vein therapy, a session usually takes less than thirty minutes and is minimally invasive. Laser energy is directed to the problem veins, which respond by shrinking and sealing off. The body redirects blood flow from the damaged veins to healthier ones, and the sealed veins are absorbed. EVLT™ has high success rate and most patients are able to resume typical activities within days.
