WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?
Spider veins are small dilated blood vessels that occur close to the skin. They are usually found near the nostrils, on the tip of the nose, in front of the ears and sometimes on the cheeks, but can also develop anywhere on the body. They are not the same as varicose veins, which are bigger blue veins that protrude from the skin and are mainly seen on the legs.
WHY DO THEY DEVELOP?
As we age and our skin loses volume, the skin becomes more translucent and these blood vessels become more evident. Genetics can play a role and sun damage can exacerbate the condition. They are usually easy to camouflage, but sometimes we just want to be rid of them once and for all!
HOW DOES SURFACE MEDICAL ESTHETICS TREAT SPIDER VEINS?
Sclerotherapy is one of the most popular and effective treatments for spider and leg veins. Sclerotherapy is a type of of injection therapy that causes unsightly veins to scar and collapse, forcing blood to re-route through healthier veins. This causes visible spider veins to disappear from the skin in a healthy, natural way. To learn more about sclerotherapy, click here.
