What causes spider veins?

When a patient's blood pressure begins to increase, it can often lead to varicose, or spider, veins. The blood in these veins near the surface of the skin slowly becomes weakened or damaged, which allows blood to collect in them rather than continue on its way to the heart. These visible veins are often frustrating and distracting from physical appearance. Talk to your provider at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics to learn more about the root cause of your veins and how to treat them.

  • Prolonged standing or sitting: Jobs or activities that involve prolonged periods of standing or sitting can put excess pressure.
  • Obesity: Any added weight places pressure on your veins and can contribute to their weakening and damage.

Spider Veins FAQ

Should I get laser vein removal or sclerotherapy?
Treatments with laser vein removal can help veins of all types and sizes. Based on your needs, a laser treatment might work better than sclerotherapy depending on your goals. Laser vein therapy works well on certain veins; however, depending on your needs, you might prefer sclerotherapy, which uses a solution that is injected directly into the vein. Veins often respond well to laser vein treatments; however, if the vein is large and bulging, surgery might be recommended. We will work with you to determine your treatment method based on your specific concerns and goals.

What happens if spider veins are left untreated?
Typically, when spider veins are not treated, excess blood will begin to seep into the tissues of the leg. This often causes swelling and inflammation that can be painful. In addition, hyperpigmentation usually begins to occur around the area of the veins.

Can varicose veins be a sign of a larger health problem?
In most cases, spider veins are not considered a serious issue. However, if you begin to notice severe and continuous pain and swelling in the legs or a heavy and/or achy feeling in your legs, we recommend scheduling an appointment with us so we can take a closer look.
