Vein Treatments Spider veins are a reality for millions of Americans. Luckily, these unsightly problems can be treated. When the valves in your veins weaken or malfunction, this causes the blood that normally flows toward your heart to collect in the valve areas. The result of this are veins – raised, often bruise-colored, cord-like bulges in the legs – or spider veins, which literally look like blue or red spiders just below the skin's surface, and can appear in the face as well as the legs.
Many factors can cause spider veins including: *Blood flow during pregnancy *Exposure to the sun on fair skin *Heredity *Obesity *Standing for long periods of time
While it is possible to avoid most causes of veins and spider veins, we often see patients for whom professional treatment is unavoidable. Dr. Kris Reddy, board certified plastic surgeon, can care for leg and face veins with either laser vein treatments or sclerotherapy.
