What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, unneeded veins that we often see on their legs and face, especially as they get older. They are usually purple, blue or red, and can be seen in matts on the surface of the skin. Spider veins can occur in all of us as we age, but are especially know to occur in women during pregnancy. In general, spider veins are not painful or harmful to the body, but many people choose to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.   

Causes of Leg Spider Veins

Spider veins may be caused by hormone changes, pregnancy, prolonged sitting or standing without walking around, genetics and sudden weight changes. But, spider veins can also just happen for reasons we do not know. Sometimes spider veins can be achy or painful. Spider veins on the face are often caused by sun exposure, but people can also just be genetically predisposed to getting them.

How Can I get Rid of Spider Veins?

If you’re struggling with spider veins on your legs, no need to worry! At Aesthetic& Dermatology Center you will come in for an initial consultation with Dr Green to determine how best to treat them. If you have spider veins on the face, you will come in for an initial consultation with Dr Walia.  

Leg spider veins are most often treated with sclerotherapy, using a painless injection material. Facial spider veins are treated with the VBeam pulse dye laser, which is considered the premier laser to eliminate facial veins.
