No More Spider Veins

Spider Vein RemovalWhat Are Spider Veins?

Millions of people are troubled by unattractive spider veins on their faces and legs. It is estimated that more than 75% of females over the age of 18 have spider veins. These red, blue or purple thread-like lines may develop on any part of the body, including the face, but most often appear on the thighs, calves, or buttocks. The condition is associated with increased pressure to the veins.

Are Spider Veins Bad For Your Health?

The spider veins are always superficial to the skin and much smaller than the varicose veins. Because the spider veins are dark and superficial to the skin, they are a major source of embarrassment for most females. These veins are harmless and not associated with any symptoms. The unattractive look of the spider vein is only cosmetic and not an area of concern. While there is no cure for spider veins, laser therapy is one way to get rid of them. If you are experiencing pain, swelling of the feet or fatigue, then the symptoms are not from spider veins.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins are typically caused by abnormal blood flow and weakening of the blood vessel wall. Any condition or activity that places pressure on the veins (like weight gain, prolonged sitting or standing) can contribute to their development. Spider veins increase with age and there is a genetic factor, since spider veins do tend to run in families. In pregnancy, spider veins are quite common and have been associated with an increase in the female sex hormone, estrogen. Estrogen is known to weaken the walls of the veins and may contribute to the development of spider veins. During pregnancy spider veins are most common in the 2nd trimester.

Do Spider Veins Disappear On Their Own?

Unfortunately No…spider veins once they appear generally get worse and do not go away on their own

Laser Treatment For Spider Veins

During laser treatment, a laser is applied to the skin over your spider veins. Laser energy causes your spider veins to shrink. Laser therapy is most effective for small and medium size spider veins. Please call us to schedule your consult to determine what is right for you. Treatments usually do not require sedatives, pain medications, or injections of local anesthetic. An average of three treatments will be required at three-month intervals to produce desired results.
