Have you ever looked down at your legs and discovered an alarming trending growing up and down your calves? Purplish, red-ish, nagging, nightmares, steadily, becoming your new reality, the dreaded varicose and spider veins.
Telangiectasias, or more often referred to as, “spider veins” are likely to be found on the legs, thighs and ankles of men and women. Women are generally affected more because of homonal changes and pregnancy. However, these creep-crawlies can appear anywhere. While some studies may attribute it to various factors, these visible blood vessels are more often hereditary in nature and painful at times.
Varicose veins tend to bulge out and have more of a blue, or green-ish, color to them. While both types of veins can be painful and definitely unsightly there is a remedy for to get rid of them called sclerotherapy. Sometimes sclerotherapy is combined with laser vein treatment, especially for the very tiny spider veins that are difficult to get a needle into to treat.
