Spider veins are small caliber flat red or purple veins that may occur in isolation or in clusters at the site of a minor trauma or randomly. Varicose veins are bulging, larger caliber veins that are found in over 25% of women and over 15% of men. Besides being unsightly, varicose veins can make legs feel heavy, achy and tired well before the day is done. Varicose veins are usually a symptom of underlying larger vein dysfunction. Without treatment, complications such as permanent leg swelling, skin changes, skin discolouration and ulcers can occur.
While spider veins and larger varicose veins are considered a chronic condition, there are several treatment options to help control and decrease their appearance and improve symptoms. Contact U Cosmetic to get your legs feeling and looking their best.
