Why You Should Treat Spider Veins Now

Posted on March 16, 2015 by Ella Fedonenko

Unfortunately for many of you spider veins are a reality. The blue-ish veins are visible through the skin on the legs.

Spider veins can be troubling for many for aesthetic reasons. So right now, while a lot of the U.S. is still wearing pants due to winter weather temperatures, it is a good time to start treating these veins before beach season starts. In addition, treatment usually means patients need to limit their sun exposure for up to two months.

Why do veins become a problem in our legs?

Veins help blood flow upwards, which, as we all know, is a nothing short of a miracle thanks to gravity. Therefore, leg veins are more susceptible to faulty valve functioning. Pressure on the walls of veins will cause stretching and weakening. Eventually, it will reduce the functionality of a vein.

Do women have to worry more about spider veins?

Actually, yes. They are more prone to spider veins. This is due in part to pregnancy. Pregnancy means weight gain and changes in hormones. Yet men can also get abnormal veins, as well.

Other risk factors, besides pregnancy, include obesity/weight gain, leg-related illnesses, aging, prior injuries or prolonged periods of standing. Genetics can also be a factor.

What do spider veins feel like?

Unfortunately, there can be a throbbing feeling. The veins can also produce:

• Rashes and Redness

• Itching

• Inflammation

Everything You Should Know About Unwanted Veins

Posted on March 24, 2014 by Ella Fedonenko

Spider veins and varicose veins affect more than fifty percent of adults, but are more commonly found in women.

Spider veins are bluish, red in color and often look like cords. They can be caused by blood that is collecting because of a break in the vein. Varicose veins are large and raised, due to swollen blood vessels. Both types of veins are sometimes described as looking like tree branches.

There can be many factors that increase the chances of developing spider or varicose veins.
Age- Veins have a higher chance of becoming damaged with age.
Family History and Genetic Predisposition– If family members have varicose veins, it is more likely that varicose veins will occur.
Pregnancy- One of the most common reasons people develop varicose veins is because of pregnancy. This happens because there is much more blood in the body and hormonal changes can cause varicose veins to form as well.
Weight- Being overweight or sedentary lifestyle can cause varicose veins formation.

There are various preventative measures that can be taken to decrease the chances of developing spider or varicose veins. Some of the most effective measures are sitting with the legs uncrossed or avoiding sitting for prolong periods of time. Shoes without heels and compression stockings are one of the few other ways to prevent varicose veins from forming.

In order to remove spider and varicose veins, there are several treatments available. One of the treatment methods is laser vein therapy. The FDA approved YAG laser is one of the most acknowledged ways of treating unwanted varicose veins. The laser focuses a beam of high-intensity light, penetrating the skin. By doing this, a controlled amount of heat is directed to the blood vessels.

Laser vein therapy with the YAG laser is one of the most sought after treatments on the market because of its advanced cooling system. This significantly decreases the discomfort during the procedure.
Laser vein therapy only requires a few short visits and the side effects are minimal.
