Spider veins can appear on your legs, face, or other parts of your body, leaving many feeling self-conscious with the “webbed” appearance to their affected areas of skin. Spider vein treatments target these tiny vessels and damage them so your body can naturally eliminate them. You can achieve spider vein clearance on the skin on your face, legs, or anywhere else spider veins occur with the help of a vein specialist, such as Dr. Robert Cutchen.
What are Spider Veins?
Usually cosmetic in nature, spider veins appear as red, blue, or purple threads just under the skin. They form when the pressure inside the smallest veins in the body causes them to stretch and thin. Spider veins are usually less than 1 mm in diameter and have a branched or web-like appearance. They often form in clusters, and clusters around the ankles can suggest a deeper venous problem, so it’s important to consult with a vein specialist over a dermatologist or med spa that offers sclerotherapy or laser treatments for spider veins.
