What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are enlarged capillaries that are purple and red which have become more superficial and visible than normal. Spider veins are primarily seen on the thighs, calves, ankles, and face, but can appear elsewhere on the body as well. These branchlike veins are common in both women and men of varying ages.

Spider veins are usually caused by damage to small blood vessels. A number of other factors can also contribute to the formation of spider veins including:

  • Genetic or hereditary factors
  • Skin trauma
  • Weight fluctuation
  • Inflammatory disease
  • Blood pressure variations
  • Sun exposure and damage
  • Hormonal changes and pregnancy
  • Aging, especially middle and older age
  • Jobs that require long periods of standing

Our advanced laser therapy gently, effectively, and permanently eliminates spider veins on the face and body. For effective spider vein removal in or near San Luis Obispo County, contact our clinic today.

Are Spider Veins and Varicose Veins the Same?

Spider veins are different from varicose veins. Spider veins tend to be smaller and more superficial while varicose veins are deeper and larger and often protrude from the skin causing a noticeable bulge. Because varicose veins are larger deeper into the skin, they typically require different treatments. The laser treatment that eliminates spider veins is superficial and minimally invasive.

Are Spider Veins Painful?

Spider veins are not typically painful to the touch. They also do not cause health problems themselves. However, many people find them to be cosmetically unattractive, and a signifier of advanced age, which is why many of our patients opt to remove them with spider vein treatments at our San Luis Obispo County office.

How Does Spider Vein Removal Work?

The laser apparatus targets spider veins by detecting blood pigment (specifically, hemoglobin). Then, the laser delivers targeted heat to destroy these capillaries. It also stimulates your skin to form new collagen and elastin, which allows the skin to heal and regrow. Since the laser only targets the red and purple blood pigments, it does not affect other skin or body cells.
