Spider Veins Q & A

What are spider veins?

Spider veins, or telangiectasia, are small areas of dilated red or blue blood vessels visible through the surface of your skin. They often have a webbed appearance, similar to that of a spider web.

According to researchers, as many as 84% of people have spider veins, which usually appear on your legs. Spider veins can also appear on other areas of your body, including your face.

While spider veins are not usually painful or present a medical problem, they can be unsightly. If you’re troubled by the appearance of spider veins, some treatments can eliminate them or make them far less noticeable.

What causes spider veins?

Medical experts believe that some people have a hereditary likelihood of developing spider veins. If you have a close relative who has these areas of dilated blood vessels, you may also encounter spider veins, especially as you age.

Increased pressure in your legs can also cause spider veins. Men and women who spend a great deal of time on their feet have a higher risk of spider veins. Sun exposure can cause spider veins on your face, especially around your cheeks and nose.

What are the treatment options for spider veins?

At Cleveland Family Health, Marian uses the TempSure™ Envi radiofrequency system to treat spider veins. This technology provides precisely controlled heat in the deeper layers of your skin. The system offers continuous temperature monitoring, allowing Marian to adjust the system as needed.

A 300-watt generator delivers powerful energy, while Temperature Logic Control tracks treatment time and temperature to prevent discomfort while achieving impressive results.

When the dilated veins are heated to a certain temperature, the vein wall tissues are damaged. That prompts your body to create scar tissue, which effectively closes the vein and prevents blood flow. Your body eventually absorbs the scar tissue, and the vessels are no longer visible through the surface of your skin.

Treatments are brief, and there is no need for extensive recovery time. Most people choose to return to work or complete their normal daily tasks after their appointment.
