spider-veins-who-what-where-when-and-whyEveryone knows a wrinkle is the effect of aging on our skin. Spider veins are the wrinkles to our vascular system. Your skin, the largest organ in your body, has an enormous network of blood vessels just below the surface. In a perfect scenario, these microscopic vessels are naked to the eye. When they become enlarged, blood pools in them thus becoming visible as red, blue, or purple lines on the skin – or spider veins.

Proper diagnosis of spider veins, and any vein disease, is critical to effective treatment. At Premier Vein Clinic, during your initial consultation, one of our Premier Vein Clinic surgeons will examine your legs and veins while you are standing. Ultrasound technology is frequently used as a diagnostic test to gain a better understanding of blood flow in deeper veins. Sclerotherapy and laser therapy are often common approaches to treat spider veins. Ridding spider veins takes patience as it can take months for spider veins to be absorbed and fade away following a successful treatment. The good news is – when treated and cared for properly, spider veins rarely come back.
