Specialized Spider Vein Treatment – Get rid of spider veins safely and effectively
Are you looking for specialized spider vein treatment? Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels that are visible through the skin. They are usually visible on legs and face and their name comes from the resemblance with a spider web.
Usually, spider veins are blue, red or purple veins which are harmless, as they don’t cause pain. Sometimes, they can be an indication of underlying venous disease. Anyhow, they are abnormal veins that should be treated, and you can get rid of spider veins safely and effectively.
What causes spider veins?
Spider veins form when the small blood vessels near the surface of the skin, known as capillaries, become dilated and visible through the skin. The dilation of these tiny blood vessels is usually caused by a combination of factors, including weakened vein walls, increased pressure within the blood vessels, and impaired blood flow.
Heredity is a major risk factor for spider veins. They usually run in families, and if your parents or grandparents had them, you may be at a higher risk of developing them as well. Genetic factors can influence the development of spider veins by affecting the strength and elasticity of vein walls, making them more prone to damage.
Spider veins vs varicose veins
If you wonder: “Are spider veins and varicose veins the same?”, the answer is no. Spider veins occur when vessels cluster close to the skin, and they are a pure cosmetic problem. On the other hand, varicose veins are caused by venous reflux, they are painful and they look like a twisted, bulged vein. The fact is that a third to a half of patients with spider veins have underlying varicose veins, even if they do not have symptoms.
Specialized Spider Vein Treatment options
Several specialized spider vein treatments are available, and the good news is they are minimally invasive and fast. You can get rid of spider veins safely and effectively if you choose a professional. Unfortunately, spider veins treatment at home is not possible. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most commonly used and effective treatments for spider veins:
Microsclerotherapy and foam sclerotherapy
The technique commonly used to treat thread veins is microsclerotherapy, which is a walk-in/walk-out procedure. It involves injecting a medicine into the affected veins, causing them to be destroyed and gradually disappear over time. This procedure is effective in treating thread veins and can help individuals achieve smoother, clearer skin. No anesthetic is required for microsclerotherapy and foam sclerotherapy, and you can go back to your daily activities right after.
Seek professional medical advice
It is crucial to consult with a qualified healthcare professional for proper evaluation and recommendation of the most appropriate specialized spider vein treatment option. Some cosmetics and aesthetic clinics address spider veins, but they focus on improving the appearance, not the real medical condition.
A healthcare professional will assess your individual condition, medical history, and preferences to determine the most effective treatment approach for you. Moreover, if hidden varicose veins are the real cause of your spider veins, a cosmetic treatment won’t be useful in the long term.
Medical treatments for varicose veins focus on addressing the underlying medical condition that causes the veins to appear and may involve more invasive procedures.
