What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are similar to and often associated with underlying varicose veins. There are, however, some major differences between these two vein disorders. Spider veins are smaller in size, beginning as tiny red capillaries that lie close to the surface of the skin. These are easily visible. They are most commonly found on the thighs, calves, and ankles. They are generally only a cosmetic concern. However, they can cause physical symptoms ranging from aching, heaviness and itchiness, to night cramps.
Spider Vein Treatment
Not all spider veins require treatment, particularly if they are not causing physical symptoms. Some people decide to have them removed for cosmetic reasons. Treating these veins early may prevent worsening symptoms associated with venous reflux disease.
Dr. Richard Fox, Dr. Akin Beckley and the Boulder Vein Center vein therapy team will customize your treatment with Sclerotherapy, VeinGogh and/or Compression Stockings.
