Spider Veins

Spider Veins

Spider Veins: What Are They? 

Telangiectasias (commonly known as "spider veins") are dilated or broken blood vessels located near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes. They often appear as fine pink or red thread-like lines, which temporarily whiten when pressed.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins occur when blood pools in veins near the surface of the skin. In some cases spider veins are hereditary, but the appearance is influenced by body mass, various trauma to the area of appearance, and hormone irregularity. In many cases, the exact cause is not known.

Who Can Experience Spider Veins?

Anyone can develop spider veins, although this type of vascular inflammation is more likely to affect people as they mature. Spider veins are much more common among women; more than half of women will develop them. Spider veins tend to increase with age and commonly appear or become more visible during pregnancy.

What Are The Most Effective Treatments?

  • We Recommend:
    • Nd: Yag 1064 Laser Vascular Treatment
  • The Benefits:
    • Laser: Light targets the underlying vascular feeding system, which is important for ensuring the long-term efficacy of the treatment. This process is safe, as other healthy veins supply blood to the treated area and the body’s immune system clears away the treated tissue, similar to how it would respond to a bruise. Following treatment, it’s beneficial to wear compression socks and prepare for bruising and subtle surface scratching that lasts 2-6 weeks.
