What Are Spider Veins?

You may have heard of spider veins, but if you're not sure what they are, then allow us to be your guide! Spider veins are smaller, twisted blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. They may appear as red, purple or blue, and are most commonly found on the face or the legs. You may not be surprised to discover that their name comes from their spiderweb pattern across the skin! They usually occur when blood pools together in veins close to the skin's surface. There are a few conditions that can cause spider veins including obesity and trauma. They are also more common in people over 30 and pregnant women.

How Are Spider Veins Treated?

Spider veins can be treated in a few ways, but one of the most effective and recommended ways is through spider vein removal. This laser treatment will be performed by a professional, and this treatment can be used to treat veins that are smaller than 3mm and are close to the skin's surface. The laser is a strong focused beam of light that causes the spider vein to clot and dry up! This is a less intrusive method of treating spider veins as no injections are required.

Preventing Spider Veins

There are certain changes you can make to your life to attempt to prevent new spider veins and to stop any existing spider veins any worse. It is recommended to wear sun-cream every day, and to make sure you wear protective hats and clothing if you're going to be out in the sun for long periods of time. Also, maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is an essential part of preventing spider veins. It's also a good idea to try and stay active as much as you can. If you have a job that requires you to sit or stand for long periods of time, try to take a walk about every 30 minutes.

What's The Difference Between Spider Veins & Varicose Veins?

Although spider veins and varicose veins are similar conditions, they do have different symptoms to look out for. Spider veins are small thin lines that are usually flat or raised. They are typically red, blue or purple in colour, and can be uncomfortable, but not painful. Varicose veins tend to be much larger and deeper than spider veins. They may also look lumpy, and are usually flesh-coloured or red. You may also experience other symptoms with varicose veins including itching, pain, bleeding, swollen legs or ankles, and an achy or heavy feeling in the legs.
