When to Consider Spider Vein Removal

Spider veins can form when the blood is no longer flowing through the capillaries in the proper manner. The condition, which is known as venous insufficiency, often causes the veins to enlarge and become visible through the skin. As such, many people seek spider vein removal at our office.

Spider veins fall into the same general category as varicose veins. However, varicose veins are larger and can be more serious as far as threats to your health are concerned. Spider veins normally do not produce symptoms or lead to other health problems. Their impact is limited to one of an aesthetic nature except in rare situations. The appearance impact of spider veins is enough to cause many individuals to suffer self-esteem problems since they can appear on the face. They are often found on the legs and chest as well.

If you happen to be one of those rare individuals who are experiencing symptoms like numbness or tingling because of spider veins, you should go ahead and look for ways to have them removed. The best way to determine your best course of action is to schedule some time with our specialist for an evaluation.

By far, the most common reason for which people consider spider vein removal is to improve the appearance. These veins get their name because they can look like a spider web with strands that are woven together. Their sharp and jagged turns frequently look like the legs of a spider as well.

Spider veins are often red, but they can be blue or purple as well. Because a single vein seldom appears in isolation, their presence is more noticeable. Many people associate their presence with aging since they are more likely to form as the years go by.
