FACTS ABOUT SPIDER VEINS

  • Spider Veins are similar to varicose veins but smaller.
  • They are closer to the surface and can appear to look like tree branches or spiderwebs with short, jagged lines.
  • The can be found anywhere on the body but most commonly on the legs and face covering a small or large area.
  • Spider veins can be caused by hormone changes that accompany pregnancy as well as sun exposure and different injuries.
  • 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men living in the United States suffer from vein problems.
  • Being born with weak vein valves increases your risk for developing spider veins
  • Being overweight or obese can put extra pressure on your veins.
  • Sitting or standing for a long time may force your veins to work harder to pump blood to your heart.
  • Spider veins rarely are a serious health problem but can cause your legs to feel uncomfortable at times with an itching or burning feeling.
  • Compression stockings put helpful pressure on your veins.

Laser treatments can effectively treat spider veins. The laser sends very strong bursts of light through the skin onto the veins, this makes the vein slowly fade and disappear. Not all skin types can be treated safely. No needles or incisions are used, but the heat from the laser can be painful. Cooling helps reduce the pain. The treatment itself can last for 15 to 20 minutes and you could need 2-5 treatments depending on the severity.

 

Possible side effects of lasers include, redness or swelling of the skin, discolored skin that will disappear and although rare, burns or scarring from the laser treatment.
