Our experienced vein specialists know how to get rid of spider veins effectively with as few side effects and interruptions to your daily life as possible.
What Are Spider Veins? Are Spider Veins Dangerous?
Spider veins are small blood vessels that twist and turn just under the skin’s surface, typically in the legs and face. Spider veins are usually red or blue and, while initially only a cosmetic issue, if left untreated they can become a more serious vein condition that may lead to dermatitis, aching, and skin ulcers.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Several things may lead a person to develop spider veins on the legs, face, or elsewhere around the body. These causes include obesity, a hereditary history of spider veins during pregnancy, puberty, menopause, or other hormonal changes. The frequency at which spider veins develop also increases with age, and women are more likely to have spider veins than men.
When looking at general lifestyle factors, occupations with a lot of standing, such as nurses, hairstylists, and teachers are at a higher risk of developing spider veins on legs.
Spider Veins on Legs
Spider veins on thighs and lower legs appear swollen and twisted, which can understandably make people feel self-conscious. The best vein doctors use sclerotherapy in Melbourne as a fast and effective way of removing spider veins and improving overall leg appearance.
Spider Veins on Face
Our vein doctors also treat spider veins on the face that form when capillaries become dilated, whether it’s from natural aging processes, sun-damaged skin, or poor blood circulation. Broken blood vessels and spider veins may occur at any age, but as women get older, they are especially susceptible to spider veins on both the legs and face.
Spider Veins Treatment at Vein Care Melbourne
At Vein Care, we provide the most comprehensive spider vein treatment Melbourne has to offer. There is no reason that someone should have to suffer from spider veins anymore, as we offer a range of treatments proven to be effective in spider vein removal.
Sclerotherapy is often recommended for spider vein removal as it is easy and fast. It involves injecting a specially made detergent directly into the vein, which causes the vein walls to collapse over a gradual period of time.
Many of our patients choose to get sclerotherapy as it is an outpatient procedure with no anaesthetic requirements and you can leave within several hours. Most patients can expect to see visible results in just a few weeks.
Microsclerotherapy is also used for spider vein removal thanks to its speed and effectiveness for patients. It is very similar to sclerotherapy, except it is specialised for spider veins.
Lifestyle changes are often recommended alongside microsclerotherapy or sclerotherapy for effective spider vein treatment. To assess which lifestyle changes may help reduce the recurrence of spider veins, it is important to consult with our specialised medical staff. We may offer a treatment plan that includes a number of things, such as diet, exercise, and skin hygiene changes.
