What is Spider Vein Treatment?
In some women, spider veins–those small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles–become noticeable at a young age. For others, the veins may not become obvious until much later. A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:
- Hormonal shifts
- Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
- Weight fluctuation
There are effective, safe and relatively painless methods available for reducing spider veins.
Spider vein treatment is a good option if you:
- Are bothered by spider veins anywhere on your body
- Are committed to following your plastic surgeon's prescribed course of treatment
- Have a positive outlook and realistic goals for your spider vein treatment
