What are spider veins and why should they be removed?
Spider veins appear as small, annoying, bluish or reddish, venous dilations of the vessels on the legs. They can be seen clearly on the surface of the skin, fan-like or sinuous. Spider veins get their name from their resemblance to birch twigs, which used to be tied together to make brooms.
Spider veins can be a genetically determined, purely cosmetic problem, but usually a weakness of the venous system also shows itself in the form of Varicose veins.
Since they do not disappear on their own, spider veins should be removed.
Spider veins causes
Spider veins are caused by the valves in the veins no longer closing completely, resulting in a build-up of blood in the leg veins. Due to this increased pressure, the vascular walls of the veins expand over time and then become visible.
The most common causes of spider veins are usually high blood pressure or obesity. The development of spider veins is promoted by hormone preparations (the pill), pregnancies, lack of exercise and professions that require a lot of standing.
Since spider veins can also be the first pathological changes in the veins, the entire venous system should be examined before treatment. This can detect varicose veins or a dysfunction of the deep veins, which should also be treated. The examination is carried out by means of a painless ultrasound examination.
Removing spider veins with a laser
Fine, superficial spider veins can be treated with special lasers.
The focused light of the laser heats the red blood pigment and penetrates the dilated vessels. This closes the dilated vessels and the body gradually breaks them down. Depending on the size of the spider veins, an average of two to three treatments are necessary for a perfect result. After the spider vein laser treatment, you should avoid sun, heat and saunas for a few days.
