What are Spider Veins
Spider veins, medically known as telangiectasia, are tiny, visible blood vessels that appear just below the skin's surface. Resembling delicate tree branches or spider webs, they can display a spectrum of colors from red to blue or purple, most commonly on the legs and face. While these veins are primarily a cosmetic concern, affecting one's self-esteem, they are not typically harmful.
What Causes Spider Veins
Spider veins can appear at any stage of life but often emerge as we age or during hormonal milestones such as pregnancy, with women being particularly susceptible. Hereditary factors, extended periods of standing or sitting, or even past trauma to the area can contribute to their development.
Types of Treatments for Spider Veins
Laser therapy stands out as a preferred method for those looking to diminish spider veins. With precision, the laser emits concentrated light to collapse the unwanted vein, which is then naturally absorbed by the body. Treatments are brief, typically between 15 to 30 minutes, and for best results, a series of 2 to 5 sessions may be recommended. Post-treatment, some may experience temporary redness or swelling, but you can expect to resume daily activities immediately with this safe and efficient procedure.
