What Are Spider Veins?
Many people have a misunderstanding when it comes to spider veins and think the term is interchangeable with visible veins. Visible veins are normal functioning veins close to the skin's surface. However, there are important distinctions between spider veins and visible veins. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but spider veins are smaller and close to the skin's surface. While varicose veins can be deeper and appear as flesh-toned, red, or blue ropey twists, spider veins are smaller and look more like a web, hence the term “spider.” Spider veins most commonly occur on the legs and face (due to Rosacea). These veins are visible, red or purple in color, and can present symptoms of pain, aching, burning, and swelling.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins can develop for several reasons, including:
- Hormonal changes
- Venous conditions, such as weak valves, can occur with age
What Is the Treatment for Spider Veins?
In most cases, spider veins are simply a cosmetic issue. While not a health risk, they can be a source of anxiety or embarrassment, especially when very noticeable or dark. We offer spider vein treatment with sclerotherapy to help patients feel better about their appearance.
Vein & Body Specialists Reviews
Not enough thank you’s in the world for the treatment I’ve received over the year for my vein issues. Dr West and staff have been so helpful and so kind every time I walk through the door. My legs are not only feeling better but looking so much better!! I’m amazed at the rather simple procedures to rid me of these ugly and painful varicose veins! Highly recommend this office
Very nice place to be treated for varicose veins and other personal enhancement issues. Everyone is very nice and helpful. I have just started going here, but it seems like I will be happy I picked Vein and Body!
I have been here for Coolsculpting treatments and for treatments on my varicose veins. I am extremely pleased with the practice, the staff and my overall experience. I definitely recommend them!
