If you have thin lines on your face and legs that seem to branch off in various directions, many times with jagged turns, you may be developing spider veins. They can appear as lines that seem to be tangled, often looking like a spider web. Their colors may be blue, purple or red.
Spider veins form when the smaller blood vessels, or capillaries, become enlarged. The condition usually happens to those vessels that are near the skin. As a result, they are frequently visible. Because they often appear in bunches, the appearance becomes even more conspicuous. Fortunately, effective treatment methods are available for their removal. While individuals often seek treatment for their own reasons, it is important to note that any reason for wanting spider veins removed is a good reason.
For the most part, spider veins do not produce any symptoms. The effect they have on a person’s life is usually cosmetic in nature only. However, they can sometimes cause symptoms such as burning, itching or aching. In cases like these, those discomforts can be eliminated with laser spider vein removal.
The presence of spider veins can leave many people questioning in their own minds what other people think when they notice them. As a result, individuals with the condition can somehow convince themselves that others see them less favorably because of these visible veins. When it reaches this point, it can negatively impact the affected person’s self-esteem. If you find yourself feeling less confident as a person than you did before the spider veins showed up, you should consider seeking treatment.
Spider veins are more likely to appear when you get older. As a result, you may associate their presence as a sign of aging. Just as wrinkles and age spots can be treated, laser spider vein removal is available to make these spider veins disappear so you can enjoy a more youthful appearance. Even if you develop spider veins at an early age, having them removed can keep you from looking older than you actually are.
Don’t Like Them
It may be that you are still perfectly confident with yourself in spite of the presence of these spider veins. Hopefully, that is the case. The appearance of spider veins does not change who you are. You know that you are just as capable whether you have spider veins or not. You may be interested in having them removed simply because you don’t like them. If so, that is reason enough, and it is one of the most popular reasons why people choose to have them removed
Ease of Treatment
You may elect to have spider veins removed because of the availability of treatments that are easy to administer and can be done without the need for downtime. Unlike many conditions, where you must decide if the potential benefits of the treatment outweigh the risk, spider veins can be removed with minimal risk. This is especially true of laser spider vein removal, which safely and effectively collapses the affected veins without damaging any surrounding tissue.
