What Causes Spider Veins?

If you are dealing with spider veins, you are not alone. Spider veins are a common health concern that affects mainly older patients. Spider veins are superficial blood vessels that appear closer to the top of the skin. Spider veins can appear anywhere in the body, but typically show up on the legs.

Typically, spider veins are not a cause for concern. Most patients get them removed for cosmetic or medical reasons.  Spider veins can be the result of increased pressure in the veins, sun exposure, or hormones. Research has suggested that spider veins can be hereditary and typically appear as patients age.  Patients with spider veins may also experience:

  • A heavy feeling in the legs
  • Swelling of the legs
  • Fatigue of the legs

Patients may be able to decrease their risk of developing spider veins by relieving pressure in the legs, increase blood circulation in the legs, keeping the legs elevated, or undergoing varicose vein treatment.

Treating Spider Veins in Springboro, OH

  • Laser Treatment for Spider Veins: Laser treatment is considered a noninvasive solution for treating spider veins. Patients will have little to no downtime after their laser treatment. Using a specially designed light, Dr. Sinnathamby highlights the vessels that cause the spider vein. After multiple sessions of laser therapy, the spider veins will begin to fade. The number of sessions will depend on your cosmetic goals and severity of spider veins.
  • Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy is the most common solution for treating spider veins. During Sclerotherapy, a solution is injected into the veins forcing it to collapse. When the vein collapses, it stops the blood flow. Most patients can see an improvement in just a few weeks.
