About Spider Vein Removal Therapy
Unsightly leg veins can be commonly seen on both men and women. These become prominent on the surface of the skin when they get enlarged and dilated, and hence, they are also known as surface veins. These can vary in size and colour, from the tiny red spider veins to thicker, blue varicose veins.
Spider veins are used to refer to the smaller, thread-like blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin. They can be red, blue or purple. They can be commonly seen on thighs, feet, and ankles and even on the face at times. They are unsightly and could even be misconstrued for being bruises. While spider veins are mostly harmless, they can at times cause pain, aches and a burning sensation, especially if you have been standing for a long time.
Varicose veins, on the other hand, are larger, blue coloured veins that occur on the surface of the skin, triggered by tired or heavy legs. These are often the result of some deeper vein issues, and are said to cause health issues like aching, cramping, swelling and throbbing. In severe cases, these veins can form unappealing bulges on the skin, and are even said to cause some ulcers or ruptures. They are usually found on the legs and thighs. While they can occur at any age, they aggravate with age are more common among older people.
