Spider Veins Q & A

What are spider veins?

Veins are the blood vessels in your body that deliver blood to your heart. Spider veins are small veins that are visible below the surface of your skin. Spider veins form thin webs or branches under your skin and often appear to be blue, purple, or red.

Spider veins form when veins suffer damage. While they don’t typically cause pain, they can be unsightly. They are similar to varicose veins, but not as large or textured. 

If you find yourself covering up because you’re embarrassed about spider veins, it’s time to find out what your treatment options are.

What causes spider veins?

Your veins get damaged and become spider veins when the valves in the vessels allow blood to flow backward. The valves in blood vessels can weaken and blood can pool in your veins, creating spider veins.

Some common risk factors of spider veins include:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Obesity
  • Family history
  • Standing for long periods of time
  • Hormone changes
  • History of blood clots

If you’re a woman, you’re more likely to get spider veins than a man. Hormonal changes that occur with taking birth control, being pregnant, or going through menopause increase your risk for spider veins.

How are spider veins treated?

Spider veins are often a cosmetic concern, and there are a number of treatment options for getting rid of them. Some conservative methods help prevent and treat spider veins. You can increase your activity level and work toward a healthy weight to help keep your veins healthy.

Cosmetic procedures also address spider veins. ThreeForMe laser treatment uses heat energy to treat unsightly spider veins. 

Laser energy permanently damages spider veins, closing off the blood flow. When the damaged vessels are closed, your body eliminates them and spider veins fade from view. 

Cosmetic vein treatment is a safe, minimally invasive method of treating varicose veins. Soon after treatment, your spider veins disappear and you have smoother, younger-looking skin.
