Do you find yourself choosing different clothes or wearing cover up to hide your spider veins? Have you stopped going to the beach, wearing a favorite skirt or hoping that no one notices the small veins on your nose or cheeks? If so, we understand your situation because we’ve treated thousands of patients just like you.
Spider veins are small veins at or near the surface of the skin. They are typically less than 1 mm in diameter and can be blueish or red. They typically appear on the legs or face but can be present on other areas of the body as well. They are differentiated from varicose veins because they are not raised or bumpy and they do not impede circulation because they are superficial in nature.
The cause of spider veins is not completely known, but in many cases the conditions seem to be related to genetics. For example, sometimes identical twins are affected in the same area o fthe body. Other factors that may play a role include hormonal changes, skin disease, and/or sun damage. The appearance of spider veins seems to be a normal part of the aging process.
Spider veins appear in both men and women, but more frequently in women. Female hormonal changes such as puberty, birth control pills, pregnancy and/or hormone replacement therapy may play a role in the development of spider veins.
Spider veins in the legs may also appear after an injury. Spider veins can also occur along with circulatory issues such as large varicose veins. Spider veins that occur on the nose or the cheeks of light skinned individuals may be related to excess sun exposure.
Laser spider vein treatment is very different from the older, more traditional injection treatment – sclerotherapy. With lasers, we do not need to pierce the skin to close off these small spider veins. Rather we are able to close these small veins using heat energy from the lasers. Lasers achieve the same goal of collapsing the spider vein using a different method than injections. Both methods can be effective for treating small veins and our patients choose us because we have the option of using either treatment method
