Spider veins are those small bursts of purple or red veins that look like spider webs. These veins are very small and extremely close to the surface of the skin. Therefore, they are often seen, causing a great deal of embarrassment. Because they are most often found on the upper legs or calves, you may feel limited by them in what you can wear or where you can go. You may not want to wear shorts anymore and may stay away from the beach or pool in the summer. With simple spider vein treatment options, not only can you relieve your embarrassment, but you can also decrease negative symptoms that these problematic veins can cause. We invite you to learn more about some of the top reasons why you should consider seeking treatment for your spider veins, or telangiectasias.
Although some spider veins cause no discomfort at all, others may bring about negative symptoms, especially as the spider veins multiply and enlarge. Some may even turn into varicose veins over time and may lead to blood pooling in your lower extremities. This can produce a tired, achy feeling in your feet and legs, which may make it difficult to sit or stand for long periods. You may also experience itchy skin over the problem areas.
Prevent Future Problems
As mentioned, spider veins can worsen over time, creating increasing negative symptoms. They may indicate an overall problem with your veins and may prove that the valves in your veins do not work well. When the valves do not close, they can lead to blood backing up in the legs, pain and burning, leg cramps and ankle swelling. You may even have restless legs at night. By treating spider veins when you first begin to notice them, you can eliminate the possibility of future problems.
