There is plenty that you can do to improve your overall appearance. Sometimes plastic surgery will be best for you and your needs. Other times you can rely on non-surgical treatments to help enhance your overall appearance. When it comes to spider veins, generally a non-surgical treatment will be best suited to meet your needs. Here our team and the Staten Island plastic surgeon want to provide some of the benefits of spider vein removal.

Spider veins are those thin red or blue veins or bundles of veins that form near the surface of  the skin. Spider veins usually affect women and are seen on the legs and the face. Spider veins are in some ways similar to varicose veins, but spider veins are usually painless. Some of the most common causes of spider veins are:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged standing or sitting

It is possible to prevent spider veins from occurring in some cases. For instance, if you have to sit or stand up for long periods of time at your job, be sure to take breaks and go for short walks or sit down. Exercise is also key in preventing the formation of spider veins. If you cannot stop the spider veins from occurring, then Staten Island spider vein removal is the best option. This includes special injection treatments, laser treatments, and other therapies.

The biggest benefit to removing spider veins is that you will look better and will be free from those unsightly clusters of veins. This means you will likely feel less self-conscious in public and may feel less restricted in terms of your clothing options.
