Broadband Light Treatment for Spider Veins

 

Spider veins are small, visible blood vessels close to the surface of the skin with a web-like or branching appearance. BBT works for spider veins through a process called selective photothermolysis, which involves using specific wavelengths of light to target and heat the blood vessels while sparing the surrounding skin tissue.

How Does Broadband Light Eliminate Spider Veins?

  • The BBT device emits a broad spectrum of light, including multiple wavelengths. The wavelengths used are selected based on the absorption characteristics of hemoglobin, the pigment in blood vessels. Hemoglobin absorbs light energy, converting it into heat.
  • The targeted spider veins absorb the light energy more effectively than the surrounding skin due to the higher concentration of hemoglobin in the blood vessels. This leads to the heating of the blood vessels.
  • The heat generated by the absorbed light causes the blood within the spider veins to coagulate or clot. Over time, the coagulated blood is gradually absorbed by the body and the spider veins fade or become less visible.
  • BBT for spider veins usually requires multiple treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions needed varies depending on factors such as the size and number of spider veins being treated.

Is Broadband Light the Best Treatment for Spider Veins?

Broadband light is extremely effective at treating unwanted spider veins. Broadband light is most effective for eliminating smaller spider veins. Larger or deeper spider veins may be more receptive to other treatments offered by Mequon Vein.
