4 Things to Know About Spider Veins Before Treatment

With the summer months here it looks like its time to bust out your favorite skirts and short-shorts. But for many women (and men!), that means having to deal with those awful, unsightly spider veins or varicose veins – leaving many women in need of immediate leg vein treatment. While they are similar in nature, these leg veins are characterized by slight differences in their appearance that distinguish them from one another. Varicose veins are twisted up, blue, blood vessels, that are not only visible from outside the skin, but create a raised impression above it as well. According to Dr. Eric Treiber MD and his team at Treiber Dermatology, spider veins, while similar, are much smaller blood vessels, often grouped closely together, appearing as a spider web – hence the name, spider veins. These abnormal veins are a result of certain vascular issues which develop when the valves and walls of the veins weaken over time. As these veins begin to degenerate, blood flow will slow, and will start to pool up. As the blood continuously pools over time, it will increase the pressure on the already weakened veins – causing them to enlarge and protrude through the skin’s surface. In the case of varicose veins, they will be especially prominent, in both look and feel – while spider veins, appear as a network of slim, bluish-red veins, much less prominent. While these issues might be mostly cosmetic, they can be a sign of some greater health concern, in addition to causing certain symptoms on their own. For those suffering from these issues, Dr. Eric Treiber MD of Treiber Dermatology offers patients a number of different options for leg vein treatment – but mainly we recommend patients undergo Sclerotherapy. Before you undergo your leg vein treatment, here are a few important facts to know about varicose veins and spider veins.

They Are Extremely Common

While it may not be talked about often in the aesthetic enhancement world, these leg vein issues are extremely common – in both women and men! Studies have shown that approximately 60% of all women, and 40-45% of all men, suffer from some form of vascular leg issues, in the US alone. And there is more than a 50% chance that you will be affected by varicose veins past the age of 50.

Not Just a Cosmetic Issue

At Treiber Dermatology, Dr. Eric Treiber MD and his team specialize in all manner of aesthetic enhancement and correction – offering a number of different leg vein treatment options. Many patients suffering from varicose veins will often complain of heaviness, swelling, discomfort, and even pain in the legs. In addition, they can cause mobility issues in the legs, and over time, patients may even develop dangerous blood clots, and non-healing bruises and sores.

Causes & Risk Factors for Vascular Issues

Despite how common they are, there are a lot of risk factors that can drastically increase your chances of acquiring both varicose veins or spider veins. Some of these factors include:

  • Genetics – Vascular issues are hereditary.
  • Gender – Women are far more likely to develop them then men.
  • Weight – Those who are overweight have a much higher chance of acquiring them.
  • Pregnancy & Hormones – Pregnant women, and those women taking birth control pills and other medication that affects your hormones, are far more likely to suffer from them.
Lifestyle Changes That May Help

When it comes to leg vein treatment, Dr. Eric Treiber MD will often recommend that his patients make a number of different lifestyle changes, before they undergo something more invasive that may have side effects. Some of these lifestyle changes include:

  • Exercise to Improve Circulation
  • Avoid Overly Tight Pants
  • Weight Loss
  • Avoid Sitting or Standing for Long Periods Without Breaks
