Spider Veins

Spider Veins

If you have red, blue or purple vessels that are smaller, and can also twist and turn, there are chances that you are having spider veins. Harmless in nature, spider veins can mostly be noticed on the face and legs and are clearly noticeable through the skin.

According to dermatology experts, spider veins can be caused by a number of factors, including the following:

  • Genetic factors
  • Occupational factors – jobs that require you to stand for a long time, including nursing, hair styling, teaching and working in a factory.
  • Obesity
  • Hormonal changes
  • Use of certain medicines
  • Tumors and constipation
  • Trauma or injury to the skin

According to Dr. Shumaila, spider veins grow more in women than in men and they keep growing with the increase in age.

The Dermalase offers several treatment options to get you rid of your spider veins; one of the best treatment options being the user of laser beams. The procedure involves the sending of powerful laser beams into the vein, as a result of which the vein gradually disappears. This is a completely non-invasive treatment method. However, the blood vessels may not disappear completely, but may become invisible with the passage of time.

Normally, more than one laser treatment sessions may be required after every 6 to 12 weeks to treat spider veins. The number of sessions would be recommended by Dr. Shumaila after careful examination of your individual spider veins case.
