Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels that are close to your skin. Because of their proximity to the surface, they may look blue or red. Spider veins are usually asymptomatic, but occasionally, they may cause leg discomfort and itchiness. Individuals with spider veins may be embarrassed by the appearance of their veins and suffer from discomfort from their venous disease. At Precision Medical Specialists, our venous disease specialist, Dr. Mario Rueda, offers advanced options in spider veins treatment to remove spider veins for better aesthetics and health at our medical center in Wellington, FL.

What Causes Spider Veins?

There are several factors that can make you more likely to develop spider veins: teachers, healthcare workers and other professionals that spend most of their time standing are affected more frequently. Family history, use of oral contraceptives, weight gain and pregnancy are risk factors associated with the development of spider veins. Spider veins are typically diagnosed by physical examination alone. In some cases, Dr. Rueda may order an ultrasound to rule out any other, more serious conditions.

If your spider veins are not bothering you or causing discomfort, no treatment is needed. However, if you would prefer them removed, we can inject your veins with a special solution to create scar tissue that will remove those vessels. It may also be worthwhile to check your legs for deeper venous insufficiency, as this may lead to recurrent spider veins.
