What are spider / varicose veins?

Your veins are central to your bodies overall health. They are the mode of transport for your de-oxygenated blood to travel back to your heart from the tissues across your body. Despite this, spider veins do not a play a necessary role in this transportation. Spider veins are redundant veins that have ceased to play a role in the transportation of your blood. These veins have become diluted and the valves are now no longer able to create the steady flow of blood through the vein.

The visibility of these veins occurs as the blood continues to flow into the vein and become strapped there. The blood continues to collect over time, which can cause the vein to bulge. In addition to red or blue lines and bulging, these veins can also put pressure on the surrounding veins and cause poor circulation. Spider and varicose veins can also suggest a larger problem with the functions of your veins.

Why do you have spider veins?

The causes for spider veins is largely debated and unknown, however it appears to commonly occur in relation to your genetics. Mounting evidence suggests that this condition is hereditary and can be passed down through many generations. This condition has also been linked to a number of genetic and non- genetic diseases. In addition, spider veins can also occur in pregnant women, as well as our aging patients. Both pregnancy and aging can put added stress on your veins, which can lead to the development of varicose veins.

How can Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa help you? 

Our committed team is dedicated to helping those suffering from spider or varicose veins. For the majority of our patients, we can address these ineffective veins through a treatment called sclerotherapy. This treatment uses a sclerosing solution, which is injected directly into your vein with the use of an extremely fine needle. This solution causes an irritation in the lining of your vein, which will cause the walls of the valve to swell and stick together.

Ultimately this solution will cause the vein to collapse in on itself and over a few weeks the vein will turn into slight scar tissue. This scar tissue will then fade from view and become unnoticeable. This can be done in one  or more appointments, depending on the size of your veins. This treatment has been providing results since the 1930’s, so you can feel confident with the tried and tested nature of this procedure.
