What causes Spider veins?
Spider veins are called so because they resemble the web of a spider.
Spider veins can occur in the legs when the valves inside the veins stop working properly. Veins carry blood back to the heart. They contain a one-way valve that closes once the blood passes through it which prevents blood from flowing backward.
The blood may struggle to flow in the correct direction if this valve weakens or becomes damaged. It can begin to pool inside the vein. This can cause a bulge in the vein that branches out as time passes and results in spider veins.
Increased pressure or sun damage can cause tiny blood vessels to burst which results in the appearance of spider veins on the face.
Spider Vein Treatment
The procedure for the spider vein treatment is as follows:
- A physical examination is done by the doctor to see if there is any kind of swelling in the area of your body where the spider veins are present.
- If there is any kind of pain and discomfort in the area, it is recommended that you explain it to your doctor.
- An ultrasound test is done to see if the valves of your veins are normally functioning or if there is a blood clot.
- A non-invasive test is performed where a technician uses a transducer against the affected area of the body.
- In this test, the transducer, which is about the size of a bar of soap, transmits images of the veins of your legs or face to the monitor.
- A less invasive surgery is then performed.
- Fortunately, no hospital stay with a long, uncomfortable recovery is required and the surgery is done on an outpatient basis.
The practice of self-care like exercises, losing weight, Leg exercises, Avoiding movement of legs and avoiding tight clothes can ease pain and avoid it from getting worse.
What can be done if you have a severe form of spider veins?
In some rare cases, the veins get extreme. They can be treated by various methods:
In this, a solution or foam is injected into small or medium-sized veins that scars them and closes those veins
- Foam Sclerotherapy
In this, larger veins are injected with the solution which leads to its sealing
- Laser Treatment
This procedure involves using new technology in laser treatments. In this, strong bursts of light are sent onto the vein which makes them disappear slowly. No needles or incisions are needed
- Vein stripping
This procedure involves tying off a vein before it joins a deep vein and removing it through small incisions. Vein stripping will not affect the circulation of blood in the area as the circulation of the blood in the leg is taken care of by the deeper veins.
- Catheter -assisted procedure using laser
It is preferred for larger spider veins. In this procedure, the doctor inserts a thin tube, known as a catheter, into a larger vein and heats the tip of the tube using laser treatment. The tube is then removed from the vein. The heat causes the vein to collapse and shut.
- Endoscopic vein surgery
In some advanced cases, there are leg ulcers present. In these cases, when no other treatment works, endoscopic vein surgery is performed. The surgeon uses a thin video camera to locate these nerves and removes them by performing small incisions. It is an outpatient process.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy
Smaller spider veins are removed by a series of tiny skin punctures. Only the part of the body that are pricked are numbed in this process. It is an outpatient process. The scarring is minimal.
