Spider veins are red, purple or blue twisted vessels that are visible under the skin, and while they aren’t typically a medical concern, they can become a serious cosmetic worry. If you’re starting to notice spider veins—and want to get rid of them—let the experts at Anders Dermatology help!
What are Spider Veins
Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body, but typically are found on the face and legs. They usually aren’t painful, but they can be unsightly, having a negative effect on a patient’s confidence.
So, what causes them? There isn’t always an exact reason for why people develop spider veins. Sitting or standing for long periods of time, obesity or even starting a new medication can trigger their formation. Often, though, spider veins are a result of genetics caused by a history of blood clots or circulation issues, leaving you with little control of eliminating them.
Small lifestyle changes like switching medications or wearing compression stockings can sometimes help alleviate spider veins, and promoting healthy blood circulation can prevent the development of additional spider veins. Remember, though, it’s important to discuss any major lifestyle changes with your doctor before making decisions. And, if you notice that your spider veins are becoming uncomfortable or painful, be sure to see a professional immediately to ensure there isn’t a larger medical concern.
If, however, your spider veins are just a cosmetic concern, there is a comfortable and effective spider vein treatment option to help you!
The Power of Excel V
The Excel V is the most advanced aesthetic technology, combining two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns like spider veins. This effective spider vein treatment targets the veins with laser energy, safely destroying and absorbing the veins without harming the surrounding treatment area.
While one treatment is sometimes sufficient, larger areas or more serious conditions may need multiple treatment sessions. Anders Dermatology will develop a customized treatment plan with you that will ensure the top results.
