From the harmful rays of the sun to pollution, your skin is being exposed to damage every day. One of the most troubling and difficult to hide issues for many people is spider veins. These stubborn veins can appear on your legs but are also quite common on the face. Because the reddish, purple veins are very hard to hide, you might be wondering if there is a way to get rid of them for good. In Culver City and the surrounding areas, Viridex Skin Therapy Radio Frequency treatment provides the perfect solution to remove spider veins from your legs and face.
What are Spider Veins?
Simply put, spider veins are damaged veins. In most cases, they are more unattractive than they are dangerous. They have a blue, purple, or red appearance that can vary from thin lines to “webs” or “branches.” In most cases, people seeking treatment for spider veins are looking for a cosmetic solution.
Spider Veins vs. Varicose Veins
Many people are unclear about the difference between spider veins and varicose veins. Although both are medical conditions called venous insufficiency, they differ in symptoms and severity.
Unlike spider veins, varicose veins are large and deep with a lumpy or twisted appearance. They also have symptoms not common to spider veins including:
- Swelling of the legs or ankles
- An achy or heavy feeling in the legs
If you feel your symptoms are more likely varicose veins you should speak to a doctor as they can increase the risk for blood clots and circulation problems.
What Causes Spider Veins?
When spider veins appear on your legs, it means the valves inside the veins have stopped functioning properly. If the valve that carries blood to the heart weakens or is damaged, the blood can’t flow which causes blood to pool in the veins. This makes the veins appear more prominent.
If you have spider veins on your face, this is caused when tiny blood vessels burst due to increased pressure. Sun damage can also cause spider veins to appear.
What is Viridex Skin Therapy Radio Frequency Treatment?
Viridex Skin Therapy Radio Frequency treatment uses vibration and heat to destroy spider veins. High signals of radio frequency are applied using a small needle to cause vibrations and increase temperature. The heat and vibrations trigger coagulation and the vein disappears.
The increase in temperature does not cause damage to the surrounding tissue. The treatment itself is relatively painless and provides immediate results.
Treatment is ideal as there is no need for compression stockings or bandages. It is also suitable for all skin types and can be done at any time of year.
