What are Spider Veins?
Medially speaking, spider veins are groups of dilated veins which sit just beneath the surface of the skin, they are smaller than varicose veins and they give the appearance of tree branches or, spider’s webs. These unsightly red or blue veins often occur in men and women above the age of 50 and they are extremely common. It is unusual for these veins to cause any health problems, in some cases however they can cause a burning sensation.
How to Get Rid of Spider Veins?
I found a great clinic to have my spider veins removed last year and after Googling ‘’ and trawling through the pages of results, I finally found the perfect clinic who did a great job on my spider veins. I had a few options in front of me which they discussed at length and if you want to then here is how they can do it.
#1. Laser Treatment
Laser treatment flashes bright bursts of light at the veins over several appointments which cause the veins to slowly fade away, many prefer this option as it is non-invasive and requires no incisions. Laser treatment however, is considered less effective than the more popular, Sclerotherapy method.
During this procedure, the doctor will inject a solution into your veins which essentially scars them which causes the veins to close. This closure of the veins forces the flowing blood to re-route and flow through healthier veins. After just a few short weeks following this process, the veins will begin to disappear and the process if incredibly effective.
You won’t need anesthesia for this treatment and it can actually be done within your doctor’s practice so no need for a hospital appointment. There are some side effects such as itching and swelling but these will go away shortly after your treatment.
Many of us don’t like to show the signs of aging and spider veins are something that many of us will suffer from, thankfully, you can have them removed very easily and very quickly so that you can once again look that little but more youthful.
