Pregnancy, weight changes, standing for long periods of time, weak valves, trauma and age can all lead to spider veins on the thighs. They typically start as a small cluster of fine red or purple lines and can spread and enlarge over time. There are two ways to deal with spider veins; 1) cover them up with clothing or full coverage foundation, or 2) laser treatment.

The only way to effectively treat and remove spider veins on the thighs, or anywhere else on the body, is by laser. No other form of treatment can clear visible blood vessels on the skin. We explain the main causes of vascular lesions on the thighs and the leading laser technology to treat them.

What’s The Best Laser For Permanent Hair Removal?

Posted by Andrew on 12-Oct-2017 19:33:14

When products, services and treatments become more mainstream, consumers tend to become more relaxed about the businesses they trust and laser hair removal is no exception as its growth in popularity has surged. Popularity usually goes hand in hand with competitiveness, meaning lower prices and hence cost cutting. Many clinics cut costs by using inferior equipment and lasers purchased overseas, meaning you may be putting yourself under a high-powered device that has not been through the stringent testing and clinical studies that you would expect. 

At the end of the day, a laser is still a laser and has the ability to inflict permanent damage when used incorrectly or by an inexperienced clinic. In this article, we explain why we believe the GentleMax Pro is the best hair removal laser in the world.

Do you suffer from dark patches of pigmentation on your upper lip, across your nose, cheekbones or jawline or on your forehead? If you answered yes, you may have Melasma.
