Spider Veins are small, red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn, and may look like a tree branch or spider web. They are very easily visible through the skin and are most often seen on the legs and face. Spider veins develop more often in women than in men and are seen more frequently with age.
There are a number of factors that contribute to a person who may get spider veins. These include, heredity, obesity, hormonal, contraceptive pills, hormonal replacement drugs, history of blood clots, occupation (a person who is standing for hours), increased pressure in the abdomen area, trauma or injury to the skin, previous vein surgery and/or sun exposure.
At Bense SurgiSpa, we offer a number of different solutions to spider veins. For the best outcome, combined treatments of injectables, lasers, and light treatments will help to reduce and diminish the spider veins. Treatments are quick and effective with no downtime.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee new veins will not form in the area, so without regular maintenance and follow up appointments, spider veins may return. Your skin care experts will recommend a home skin care regime and follow-up maintenance treatments.
