What are spider veins?
Spider veins are small dilated blood vessels that occur close to the skin, and are usually found near the nostrils, on the tip of the nose, in front of the ears and sometimes on the cheeks. But they can develop anywhere on the body. As we age, 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. This is a cosmetic concern that does not include symptoms or medical risks.
What causes spider veins?
Spider veins in the leg, hand and face are caused by unhealthy valves inside feeder veins. As a result, blood flows backwards instead of upwards toward the heart. Some of this backed-up blood can lead to non-functional, “dead end” veins that appear underneath the surface of the skin as spider veins.
Despite the lack of health risk involved, many people wish to remove their unsightly spider veins. If you have tolerated this condition for years, we can provide a non-invasive, non-surgical treatments.
