Spider Veins
Spider veins are small red, purple or blue veins, pathologically stretched, which are distinctly visible beneath the epidermis. They are often found on the legs and face. Their diameter varies from 0.1 mm to 1 mm and may appear as single or as large vein formations.

Spider veins are created due to increased pressure in small veins, near the epidermis, resulting in prolongation. Spider veins, like varicose veins, are much more common in women and their frequency increases with age. Factors contributing to the appearance of spider veins in patients with genetic predisposition are: hormonal factors (pregnancy, adolescence, menopause, contraceptive pills, menopause hormone therapy), long standing or sitting, lack of physical exercise, and obesity.
Spider veins affect more than 4 out of 10 adults, both men and women, and the proportion increases in people with cellulite and of course with normal aging. They often appear on the face and thighs of women and men, especially during periods of hormonal disorders, and may appear in the cervix, sternum, legs, ankles and any other part of the body.

Heredity and hormonal changes, such as menstruation and menopause, are the main causes that lead to the appearance of spider veins. Often, "broken" vessels are presented for the first time during pregnancy and remain, to a lesser extent, postpartum or occurring during labor. Prolonged stomach, smoking and obesity burden the condition, as is the continued sedentary life as blood is not circulating properly.

Extreme exposure to sunlight plays a catalysing role, especially with regard to light-colored skins. Infrared (UV) radiation causes premature photoaging, resulting in weakening of the supporting structure of the vessels. Of course, spider veins can also be the result of rosacea, corticosteroid use, pregnancy, menopause, estrogen therapy or various autoimmune diseases. In some cases, the appearance of spider veins may be responsible for a sudden pull as is often the case with waxing, tweezing, thread or epilating machinery.

At Dermatology & Cosmetics Lab, specialised dermatologists and plastic surgeons apply the most modern methods of reducing and eliminating spider veins such as Fractional Laser, Sclerotherapy, Ng-YAD Laser.
