Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they are typically smaller, more numerous, and branch out to look like the legs of a spider. They’re thin, blue and anything but attractive. The unsightly appearance can cause self-confidence issues for anyone suffering from spider veins in Los Angeles, especially when heading to the beach or looking to wear your favorite pair of shorts. By taking a multi-disciplinary approach to spider veins treatment, our entire team is known for its ability to rid patients of unsightly and painful spider and varicose veins.
In addition to being an issue of appearance, spider veins also carry certain health risks. Legs with varicose veins are more likely to feel fatigued or uncomfortable. Long-term health problems that may result include blood clots, poor circulation, deep vein thrombosis, and swelling. If you suffer from any of these effects, our treatment plans can relieve your discomfort and change your life for the better.
There are many different causes of spider veins, the most common of which is genetics. However, there are some lifestyle choices that can make spider and varicose veins more likely. For instance, being significantly overweight, or simply having a job where you stand most of the day can lead to a much greater risk. Other possible causes include pregnancy, use of birth control pills, menopause, puberty, or hormone medication. The risk of spider veins also increases as you get older.
