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. Varicose veins are caused by abnormal blood flow. Varicose veins can be attributed to a hereditary weakness in the structure of the vein, leading to valve malfunction.
It’s true that genetics is the main cause of spider and varicose veins. However, any condition or activity that puts pressure on the veins can contribute to their development. This includes obesity, age and trauma. Most men and women with cosmetic spider veins are symptom- free. 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. Sclerotherapy works 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 XEO Vascular laser treatment for vascular lesions addresses non-bulging veins such as broken capillaries and spider veins. XEO Vascular is a fast, non-invasive, no-downtime procedure that works to effectively treat vascular lesions on the face and body.
- VNUS Closure – Also known as Radiofrequency ablation. This minimally invasive surgical procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat and seal the affected veins closed. Due to the absence of cutting, trauma to the limb is avoided. Offering 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.
