One of the milder symptoms of venous disease shows up as spider veins which are small, visible, dilated blood vessels. They appear just under the skin surface as red, purplish, or blue veins. There are many health conditions that cause spider veins including diabetes, pregnancy, and circulation problems.
Treating Spider Veins
Often these typically are more of a cosmetic nuisance, but they can be a sign of venous disease that may require monitoring or treatment. For example, spider veins may be caused by venous hypertension within underlying varicose veins. Dr. Medina and his clinical team can treat these cosmetically with sclerotherapy or laser treatment, both are simple non-invasive procedures. You and your Triangle Vein Clinic provider will discuss treatment options and which is best for you.
