The safest and most reliable Spider Vein Removal treatment you will find in Falls Church is at Laser Smooth Solutions. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but smaller. They are located closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins and are frequently red or blue in color.
They may resemble spider webs, hence their name, and are commonly found on the legs and face. Some of them can cover a relatively large area of the skin and be embarrassing. Weak or damaged valves in the veins are the cause of this condition. The heart pumps oxygen and nutrient filled blood to the entire body through the arteries and the veins are responsible for carrying the blood back to the heart. When you squeeze your leg muscles, the veins push blood against the flow of gravity, back to the heart.
As the blood moves up your legs, valves found on veins act as one-way flaps to keep blood from flowing backward. When the valves are weak, blood tends to leak back into the veins. Backed-up blood swells them up, and the veins then become varicose, or spider veins. Hormonal changes due to puberty, menopause or pregnancy may also increase the risk of getting spider veins, as well as taking birth control pills and other estrogen or progesterone medications. The amount of blood found inside your body drastically increases during pregnancy. This blood augmentation leads to enlarged veins and as the growing uterus places additional pressure on them, spider veins may occur.
Exposure to the sun is one of the most common cause of spider veins occurring on the nose or cheeks of mostly fair-skinned people. Sitting or standing for extended periods of time prevent your veins from pumping blood to your heart as efficiently as if you were moving. Sitting with your legs crossed significantly worsens the issue. Heredity also plays a part in suffering from this condition. Family members suffering from vein problems will increase your risk of developing spider veins.
