Spider veins are thin damaged blood vessels that are visible just under the skin’s surface. They typically appear on the legs as a tangle of red, blue or purple. As well as commonly causing people to feel self-conscious, spider veins can be more than simply a cosmetic complaint. While many people believe that vein treatments are largely for aesthetic purposes, there can also be a range of health benefits associated with spider vein removal. This article details potential health improvements from having spider vein treatment in Atlanta.
Decrease Aches and Pains
Although spider veins don’t cause physical discomfort for many people, some individuals may experience aches and pains. Some may also suffer from itching, burning, throbbing or cramping. Treating the spider veins can help to resolve any associated unpleasant sensations.
Spider veins may cause low self-esteem or a lack of self-confidence in people. Negative feelings are often worse in warmer months, when individuals may feel reluctant to wear shorter clothes or enjoy time at the seaside. Treating spider veins can help to improve an individual’s mental health.
Vein issues may cause swelling in the lower parts of the body. Removing spider veins can often help to reduce swollen legs, ankles and feet. This is typically more comfortable for an individual.
Prevent Further Damage
Spider veins may indicate an underlying problem related to venous insufficiency. If left untreated, especially for a long period of time, spider veins may worsen into greater problems with the veins in the leg. They may lead to the larger and more visible varicose veins, which are generally more painful and uncomfortable. Additionally, varicose veins may lead to bleeding, ulcers and potentially deadly blood clots. Spider vein removal treatments can prevent more serious health issues from developing and reduce the risk of further damage to the veins. Essentially, early treatment of spider veins is highly recommended.
Improve Blood Flow
Spider veins are damaged veins. In essence, they cannot carry blood around the body effectively. Vein treatments reroute blood so as to enhance flow and make sure that blood returns to the heart from the legs as efficiently as possible.
