Unsightly, But Are They A Sign of A Deeper Problem?
Spider veins are usually just an unsightly annoyance — we’ve all seen those small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin that can appear as red, blue or even purple threads. But even though spider veins appear harmless, they can indicate that larger veins beneath the surface are not functioning properly.
Spider veins may be hereditary or may result from a problem in the circulatory system. Most spider veins appear between the ages of 18 and 35. They typically develop on your legs, but it’s not uncommon to have them on your face, chest and other areas of your body. When you come to Vein Institute of Connecticut, our doctors will do a thorough screening to make sure you have no medical cause for these unsightly little veins.
As with varicose veins, spider veins cannot be prevented. There are, however, several measures you can take to minimize spider veins and also speed recovery after treatment. The answer can be as simple as exercise or a few sclerotherapy sessions to make your spider veins disappear.
