There are three different types of veins running through your body but when the valves and walls of these veins become thin and damaged, blood flow is affected. As blood begins to pool in your veins, they will dilate and spider and varicose veins will start to form.
Some of the most common causes of spider and varicose veins include genetics, sun exposure, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations or activities that require prolonged periods of standing and sitting.
Spider veins can occur on both the face and the legs, while varicose veins are more commonly found on the legs. When left untreated, these veins can really start to affect your self-confidence and in some cases, varicose veins can even lead to complications such as swelling, pain, bruising and even ulceration.
Fortunately, sclerotherapy sessions at Clinica Lase make it possible to safely and effectively reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins, leaving you with a renewed sense of confidence.
