Spider and varicose veins are common conditions prevalent among many adults, women being at the receiving end of it more often than men. These conditions develop close to the surface of the skin imparting an unsightly look. Spider veins are smaller than the varicose veins that look like spider webs and can affect anyone, regardless of age. They can occur in prominent areas like the face and lower legs, which can take a toll on someone’s self-confidence. Spider veins are not as visible as varicose veins since the former can normally be seen under the skin (are in the outer layer of skin between the dermis and epidermis so not that visible).
On the other hand, varicose veins are the larger, raised visible veins that often appear on the thighs, both sides of the calves, or the inside of the legs close to the ankles and feet. Women are twice as likely to be affected with varicose veins especially older women.
Both these conditions- spider veins and varicose veins- commonly occur together since both are caused by similar blood-flow situations. This implies individuals who have varicose veins almost always have spider veins too. However, it must be noted that spider veins do not always turn into varicose veins. Someone with varicose veins might feel heaviness, discomfort or swelling in the legs. On the contrary, spider veins are almost always painless and do not lead to leg swelling or any other health problem. Treatment may be necessary to prevent the conditions from worsening, and also for the legs to appear and feel improved and beautiful.

Why Choose Quality Health Care and Wellness Center for Spider and Varicose Veins Treatments:
Remember spider veins and varicose veins are a very common cosmetic problem (varicose veins aren’t always just a cosmetic problem though) that can impact how women enjoy their lives because of their unsightly appearance. About 50 to 55 percent of women in the United States are affected by spider and varicose veins. It is best to undergo treatment to get rid of them once and for all. If left untreated, varicose veins can worsen and can lead to severe leg swelling and hardening of the skin.
Doctors vouch for the Nd:Yag laser- the current laser of choice for treating leg veins. The laser heats the vein, which causes the vein to collapse and eventually disappear. The Nd:Yag laser is one of the most effective laser treatments for treating leg veins. Then there are more invasive options like vein ligation and stripping surgery.
