Do you have a red or purplish patch on your leg that may look like a bruise but never goes away? This “bruise” may actually be a condition called matting, a cluster of extremely fine spider veins grouped together in a network. They usually appear on the inner or outer thighs and are common in people with extensive surface veins or in overweight people with poor muscle tone. At Totality, we utilize Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat these areas of matting.
