Are you self conscious about veins that lie near the surface of your skin? Do you wish to seek information from a specialist? Surface veins i.e. spider veins are reoccurring problems individuals have with aging, heredity, and in some cases hormonal changes. According to American College of Phlebology, spider veins affect nearly one in three women and one in five men. Although, spider veins are a common condition, cosmetically speaking, they are an eye sore, and can easily be treated with noninvasive procedures depending on your circumstance.
Causes of Spider Veins
Spider veins occur due to the stretching of veins that lie near the surface of the skin. Once the veins become stretched, they contain extra amounts of blood, which makes them more visible. Because spider veins may not always be solely a cosmetic concern, there is always the possibility that there are underlying conditions affecting your circulation.
An ultrasound may be performed at your initial consult to ensure your spider veins are simply a cosmetic issue. Visual Sclerotherapy, with the use of a vein light or magnifying lens, is a procedure performed to treat spider veins.
