Spider Vein Treatment in Atlanta from Georgia Endovascular

Effective, minimally invasive treatments for spider veins and related symptoms

Spider veins are networks of small, thin blood vessels that can be seen on the skin's surface. They can range in color from red to purple and are usually found on the legs, face, and chest. Spider veins are often considered unsightly and seen as a cosmetic issue.

Spider veins are common due to the natural aging process. As people age, skin elasticity declines, which can cause blood vessels to become more visible.

More than 50% of women will experience a vein disorder like spider veins. While women are more likely to suffer from visible veins due to hormonal changes, it is estimated that around 40-45% of men will also develop spider veins.

Cosmetic spider veins treatment in Atlanta can diminish the appearance of the veins and improve the look of the skin. Treatment options such as sclerotherapy can help reduce the veins' visibility and restore the skin to a more youthful appearance.

Georgia Endovascular connects patients to advanced treatment protocols designed to yield exceptional results with minimal discomfort and inconvenience.

What Are the Symptoms of Spider Veins?

Spider veins are clusters of small, thin blood vessels apparent on the skin. They can range in color from red to purple and are usually found in the shape of a spider web.

Common symptoms of spider veins can include itching, burning, throbbing, or heaviness in the affected area. Sometimes, spider veins may cause an aching or cramping sensation in the legs. Spider veins can also cause swelling in the ankles and feet.

Why Do People Get Spider Veins?

Spider veins can erupt for numerous reasons.

The primary contributor to spider veins is advancing age. However, several other factors can influence their development.

Sun exposure can cause spider veins by damaging the skin's collagen, leading to skin thinning and weakening of the vessel walls. Thin skin makes the veins more visible. 

Additionally, sun exposure can cause an increase in hormone levels, which can also contribute to the development of spider veins.

Venous reflux or backwards flow in larger superficial veins under the skin may lead to high pressure in all of the superficial veins of the legs. This can cause varicose veins and spider veins to form.

Pregnancy can cause spider veins due to hormone spikes, increased blood volume, and additional pressure on the veins.

Other factors that contribute to spider veins include the following

How Can I Prevent Spider Veins?

Maintaining a healthy body mass index and avoiding prolonged standing or sitting can help prevent spider veins. Consistent exercise is also beneficial, as it improves circulation and reduces your risk of spider veins.

Additional steps you can take to prevent spider veins include the following

How Are Spider Veins Treated?

Sclerotherapy is a popular therapy for spider veins. The approach involves injecting a solution into the veins, which causes them to collapse and become less visible. The solution stimulates the body's natural healing process, which helps the veins to dissolve over time.

Sclerotherapy is generally not painful, but patients may feel a mild sting when the solution is injected. Additionally, some patients may experience redness and swelling in the area following the procedure.
