What are spider veins?
What is the main cause of spider veins?
Spider veins are usually caused by a condition called venous insufficiency, which makes it hard for the veins to work properly. It happens when the valves in the veins wear out or are damaged. These valves make sure that blood moves smoothly towards the heart and stops blood from going backwards. When the valves don’t work right, blood can pool or move backward. This raises the pressure inside the veins. Spider veins happen when the increased pressure causes the veins to get bigger and twist. Venous insufficiency and spider veins can be caused by many things, like genetics, age, gender, long periods of standing or sitting, being overweight, and being in the sun. Even though these things increase the chance of getting spider veins, they may not necessarily cause them to happen.
What is the best treatment for spider veins?
Spider veins can be treated in different ways, depending on how bad they are, if they are caused by venous insufficiency, and how healthy the person is generally. It’s important to remember that each person is different and that the choice of treatment should be made after a full evaluation. Here are some of the most popular ways to treat spider veins:
- Laser therapy: Concentrated light energy is used to target and get rid of spider veins. The laser heats the veins and seals them off, so they slowly go away. This method doesn’t hurt anyone and is usually well-tolerated. It may take more than one session to get all of the blood out of the lines.
- IPL treatment: High-intensity light pulses are used in IPL therapy to target and get rid of spider veins. The light energy is taken in by the blood vessels, which causes the blood vessels to get bigger and then fade away. IPL treatment may work well on smaller spider veins, but it may take more than one session to get the best results.
