Spider veins are a common cosmetic issue that can cause many people to feel self-conscious about their appearance. They are small, thin, purplish or red veins that appear on the skin’s surface, often on the legs and feet. Despite their delicate appearance, spider veins can be difficult to get rid of. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of these veins and restore the skin. Texas Surgical Dermatology, led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides spider vein treatment to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small, threadlike veins that appear just beneath the surface of the skin. They can appear as a single line or as a web-like pattern and can range in color from red to purple. They are caused by increased pressure on the veins and can be found most often on the legs and feet.
Although spider veins are usually harmless, they can be unsightly and many people feel self-conscious about them. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of these veins.
Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins can be treated in a variety of ways, all of which are simple and effective. These procedures are typically performed in an outpatient setting and take only a few minutes to complete. Most people feel little to no discomfort during the procedure and can resume their normal activities almost immediately afterward.
The results of spider vein treatment are usually visible within a few weeks, and most people will experience a significant reduction in the appearance of their spider veins.
Are Results Permanent?
The results of spider vein treatment are usually permanent, but they can vary from person to person. In some cases, the veins may reappear over time, while in others they may remain gone for years.
The results of spider vein treatment are not guaranteed, and some people may not experience the desired results. It is also possible that the veins may reappear after treatment is complete, although this is usually not the case.
It is also important to keep in mind that spider vein treatment does not prevent new spider veins from forming. To reduce the risk of new spider veins appearing, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, avoid standing for long periods of time, and wear compression stockings when necessary.
