Spider Vein Treatment
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are those tiny purple and red blood vessels most commonly found on the ankles, thighs or lower legs of both men and women. More common in women, spider veins may be triggered by pregnancy or hormonal variations. Non-symptomatic spider veins may be found on the face and chest as well as the legs. Although surface veins are mainly a cosmetic problem, they can also be an indication of more serious vein disease deep below the surface. Some symptoms that accompany spider veins include itching, restless leg, minor aches and pains, discomfort, swelling, tingling and even heaviness. If left untreated, these symptoms only get worse over time.
Facial veins are dilated and broken capillaries, or blood vessels, in the face which can occur due to sun exposure, aging, trauma and genetics. Commonly affected are the nose, forehead and the cheeks. Most men and women can become self-conscious about these veins. Southern Beauty Aesthetics offers treatments to help correct these veins, which includes sclerotherapy and Spectrum's Long Pulse Lag Laser.
