Spider veins are clusters of visible red or blue veins that typically show up on the legs. Spider veins can develop for any number of reasons, but they are more likely to develop with age or during pregnancy. While there is not much we can do to get rid of spider veins on our own, medical advances have allowed spider vein removal to become easier than ever before. We are proud to offer Vasculaze from InMode at the Center for Women’s Health. To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact our office to schedule an initial consultation with us in Oxford, NC.
Why Do Spider Veins Form?
While the exact reason varies from person to person, spider veins mainly form when the valves in the veins become faulty, and blood begins to pool within them instead of circulating properly. This forces them to enlarge and become visible on the skin.
Spider veins are usually not a health concern, but they can have an unwanted impact on one’s appearance. They also commonly bring with them itching and a dull, throbbing pain, which can both lead to significant discomfort throughout the day. Untreated spider veins run the risk of becoming varicose, which can lead to some serious health concerns.
