Spider veins or varicose veins are a network of enlarged, twisted and swollen veins or blood vessels that form on the surface of the skin. This condition is commonly observed in the veins present in the lower areas of the body; mostly the leg region.
This is a medical condition that commonly occurs due to weak veins and valves which cannot create ample pressure to pump the blood back to the heart. This condition may lead to weak legs and the patient may experience pain in their legs after long hours of standing.
For most people, spider veins do not cause any pain, discomfort or symptoms and are just a cosmetic condition. Whereas, for some people, the varicose veins or spider veins can cause discomfort and pain. In some rare cases, varicose veins can lead to serious complications and the patient may need to undergo spider vein removal in Melbourne.

How to get rid of spider veins
Ignorance or prolonging treatment for spider veins’ condition may result in various serious complications, such as blood clots, painful ulcers, and bleeding in some rare cases.
Fortunately, spider veins or varicose veins can be easily diagnosed and detected via visual inspection. The doctor further conducts a physical examination of swelling and the veins. If the patient feels any discomfort, the doctor may ask to describe the experience.
Various treatment methods effectively treat varicose veins or spider veins. Some of which include self-care and the use of compression stockings. However, if the condition is severe or if the swelling is more profound as in the case of varicose veins, then you can undergo sclerotherapy – an effective nonsurgical treatment procedure to reduce the swelling in the veins.
Sclerotherapy treatment procedure is very effective in treating medium and small spider veins or varicose veins. In this procedure, the experienced doctor injects a foam or solution into the affected veins. This solution causes scarring in the veins which lead to their collapse or closure.
The pooled blood in the veins gets rerouted naturally to the healthy veins in the area. This reduces the swelling in the veins. With successive treatment sessions, the swelling in the veins entirely fades away to provide a smooth and even skin texture. This greatly improves the beauty and aesthetic appeal of your legs.
Spider veins are a common condition among people, and they can be effectively treated to make your skin smooth and aesthetically appealing. . If you want to consult a specialist doctor for spider vein removal Melbourne, you must visit Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre Today.
