SKIN CONCERN:

Spider Veins

These vascular appearances are networks of blue, red, or purple veins that can either be inherited or caused by hormonal changes.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are a result of blood vessels dilation typically on the face or legs. They appear as small red or purple veins that twist and turn, resembling spider webs as the name implies. These veins generally measure around 0.5 and 1 millimetre in diameter that lie close to the skin’s surface.

What causes Spider Veins?

These vascular appearances can occur for a variety of reasons, and one of the primary causes is genetics. Hormonal changes during transformational body changes such as pregnancy, puberty, and menopause can also cause these. Other than that, changes in weather and outdoor activities that can cause extreme changes in pressure can lead to the bursting of blood vessels. Age also plays a determining factor, with elderly people being more prone to this condition. These are much more likely to affect women than men.

DID YOU KNOW?

This skin concern commonly affects women, with about 50-55% suffering from this condition.

If you would like to seek help with any vascular changes or superficial veins in your skin, please speak to our laser specialists and medical doctor at Cosmetic Medical Clinic.
