Spider veins are super common, and although they don’t pose any serious health risks, many people want to remove them for cosmetic reasons.
Spider veins found on the legs occur when the valves in veins stop working properly.
Valves prevent the back flow of blood, so when these valves are damaged or weakened, the blood often doesn’t flow in the right direction. This can lead to pooling inside the vein, and after a while, this can become visible under the skin as the vein enlarges, resulting in spider veins.
One the other hand, spider veins on the face are often caused by the bursting of small blood vessels, potentially due to sun damage or pressure on the skin.
Such visible veins used to be treated with surgery, but the development of laser technology has abolished the need to go under the knife.
When the laser is applied to the area, the pigment in the blood is targeted and the vessel is warmed to redirect blood flow without harming the skin or tissues. Usually a few weeks after the treatment, the body reabsorbs the vein and it’s no longer visible!
