Treatments for Spider Veins
Are you tired of legs with veins that look like a wire mesh?
Many men and women have spider veins. Spider veins appear as red spider veins, purple spider veins or even blue spider veins and can appear anywhere on the body including the face, neck, chest and legs.
As people age these veins may multiply and be hard to cover up with make up or clothes and can be both embarrassing and frustrating. Spider veins are small blood vessels, capillaries, that are near the surface of the skin. Spider veins are also known as telangiectasias and are usually connected to larger veins but are not an essential part of them. Spider veins may be inherited, due to weight gain, work that requires constant sitting or standing , medications as well as pregnancy in women.
Spider vein treatment is provided by BC Laser and Skin Care Clinic using lasers for spider veins as well as sclerotherapy. To book an assessment with Dr Shah please call 604 580 2464
Spider veins can also be the symptom of a larger problem of varicose veins and in this case the larger varicose vein is treated as well as the small spider veins.
Spider vein treatments at BC Laser and Skin Care Clinic are non surgical treatments that have no downtime and are quick treatments.
Spider vein treatments include Laser treatments with the VBeam laser as well as ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. Compression stockings are used following treatments to ensure that veins remain collapsed and to ensure that the treatment is successful.
Spider Veins may be prevented by the use of compression stockings , especially in standing or sitting occupations. Compression stockings today can be both functional and look great and are not restricted to looking drab and dull.
