What causes spider veins to appear?
Spider veins occur when valves in your veins that allow blood to flow back to your heart become defective, causing the blood to flow backward and pool inside the vein. Consequently, the blood vessel walls weaken, which creates a cluster of tiny blood vessels close to the skin’s surface. Certain risk factors that often lead to the potential development of spider veins in people include:
- A history of blood clots
- Birth control use
- Conditions that cause increased abdominal pressure, including constipation, cysts, or tumors
- Family history of spider veins
- Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause
- Jobs such as that of factory workers, hairstylists, nurses, or teachers, which require prolonged periods of standing
- Postmenopausal hormonal replacement therapy
Do I have spider veins?
Spider veins are small, red, blue, or purple veins that appear just underneath the surface of the skin and resemble a spider web, which is why they are called spider veins. If you have spider veins, you might experience some discomfort in the affected area, but they are generally not too painful. That said, they should be treated because they could develop into painful varicose veins, and eventually varicose disease. They often appear on the legs, chest, or face.
How long does it take for spider veins to go away after treatment?
Normally, spider veins gradually disappear after treatment. Depending on the extent of your spider veins, they should go away in about two to six weeks following treatment for most methods. However, at Colorado Laser and Vein, our renowned method of procedure removes spider veins instantly!
How are spider veins treated?
At Colorado Laser and Vein, sclerotherapy is the primary treatment of spider veins of the legs. This is cutting-edge technology, that is proven to achieve the best possible results and remove spider veins instantly. This involves using a microneedle to inject the veins with FDA approved solution Sotradecol® or Polydocanol®. This will cause the vein to close and disappear over a period of several months. Sclerotherapy is an effective and proven treatment option for spider veins on many parts of the body. Sclerotherapy has been used to effectively remove both spider and varicose veins for many years.
