What You Need to Know About Spider Vein Therapy

From possible causes, signs, and symptoms, to customized treatment options, here’s everything you need to know about spider veins and spider vein therapy.

Spider veins are dilated superficial blood vessels, similar to varicose veins, but smaller and closer to the skin. They often appear as red or blue lines, most often on your legs or your face and while aging is one of the most common culprits of this condition, other causes may include:

  • Hormonal shifts
  • Pregnancy
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Genetics
  • Occupations that require prolonged sitting or standing

While spider veins often come with no symptoms other than an undesirable cosmetic appearance, some people with spider veins may experience:

  • Swelling
  • Heavy or aching feeling in the legs
  • Pain after sitting or standing for too long
  • An itchy rash

6 Tips To Lower Your Risk of Developing Spider Veins

While you might not be able to completely prevent spider veins from appearing, there are some steps you can take to try and lower your risk. This includes:

  • Keep your blood flowing by exercising to increase leg circulation and strengthen your leg muscles.
  • Relieve some pressure by keeping your weight down and avoid standing or sitting for long periods. Experts recommend taking a short walk every 30 minutes.
  • Get support from wearing a lightweight compression stocking. This can go a long way to preventing and managing spider vein symptoms, including swelling.
  • Prop up your feet. Your legs must be elevated higher than your heart for the best effect.
  • Use sunscreen. If you have light skin, sun exposure can lead to spider veins on your cheeks or nose, so make sure to wear sunscreen to minimize any damage!
  • Have any varicose veins treated. Getting any varicose veins you have treated will reduce pressure in the legs and prevent the development of additional spider veins.

V-Beam Laser Therapy For Spider Veins: What You Need to Know

V-Beam Laser therapy is an innovative spider vein treatment option. This pulse-dye laser works by delivering gentle pulses of light into the treatment area, which are then absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels. The blood then coagulates and is reabsorbed into the body as part of the natural healing process.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
