Q&A

What are spider veins?
Spider veins are thought to be the result of a lesser condition of the same process as varicose veins. Increased vein pressure can cause the little veins, called telangectasias, to form.

 

Spider veins are cosmetic and may not be a significant health or medical issue. These are small red, purple and/or blue tiny veins found on the surface of the skin. They often are found in combination with slightly larger reticular veins, which tend to be green or blue in color.

Spider veins and reticular veins may or may not be associated with significant venous insufficiency, and therefore, require examination by an experienced practitioner before attempting treatment. If there is significant venous insufficiency present, any treatment for the spider or reticular veins is unlikely to provide lasting results. Cosmetic spider veins are treated with sclerotherapy.

 

Could my spider veins be a sign of something more serious?
While in many cases spider veins are a cosmetic issue on the surface of the skin, in others they can be a symptom of more severe vein disease which leads to varicose veins. An ultrasound may be performed to determine if the veins are significant. Symptoms often associated with vein disease include pain, heaviness, swelling, throbbing, itching, restless leg syndrome, cramping, burning and fatigue.

 

In many cases of leg vein disease, abnormalities visible upon the surface of the skin are indicative of a more severe and significant condition below the surface of the skin. Small spider veins at the base of a leg may actually be caused by larger veins higher in the leg that cannot be seen. For this reason, it is extremely important to have an ultrasound to accurately diagnose the severity of your condition.

What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is an injection treatment used to eliminate small to medium size varicose veins and “Spider Veins”.
