Any vein may become varicose, however, this condition exists most often in the legs and feet
Spider veins are thin and threadlike and are usually less than 1-mm in diameter. They lie close to the skin’s surface, are typically red or purple in color and are “web-like” in appearance. Varicose veins are the blue or purplish enlarged veins that look as though they are twisted or bulging out of the leg. Any vein in your body may become varicose, however, this condition exists most often in the legs and feet. Like spider veins, varicose veins are caused by abnormal blood flow and can be attributed to a hereditary weakness in the structure of the vein, leading to valve malfunction.
Though genetics is the main cause, any condition or activity that puts pressure on the veins can contribute to their development, such as obesity, age and trauma. Most men and women with cosmetic spider veins are symptom- free while varicose veins can be a painful and progressive medical condition if left untreated. You can learn through your diagnostic screening at our Westchester cosmetic surgery center, if your vein issues are an initial sign of a more serious underlying vascular condition.
Some of our most popular procedures are:
- Sclerotherapy – A minimally-invasive, in-office treatment designed to diminish the appearance of spider veins by injecting a mild solution into any spider veins that are visible to the naked eye, causing them to collapse.
- Westchester Laser Treatments – SkinCenter’s vascular laser will minimize the redness and discoloration associated with cosmetic spider veins to improve your leg’s appearance. This no downtime procedure works by delivering an intense but gentle burst of yellow light into the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermal layer of the skin. These vessels are coagulated and then reabsorbed by the body during the normal healing process.
- VNUS Closure – Also known as Radiofrequency ablation, this minimally invasive surgical procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and seal the affected vein/s closed. Because there is no cutting involved, it avoids trauma to the limb and offers an effective alternative to major vein surgery.
Some veins that need to be treated are below the surface of the skin and can be injected safely with the aid of ultrasound imaging assistance.
The best news is that if your leg vein problem is the result of an underlying medical condition, many insurance companies will cover the costs of diagnosis and treatment.
