Spider & Varicose Cosmetic Surgery Treatments
Do you suffer from unsightly or even painful varicose veins?
If so, there are many cosmetic procedure options that can greatly diminish the effects of spider or varicose veins and even rid you of them altogether. It’s often been thought that these veins are an unfortunate occurrence that you just have to live with.
With modern technology, however, this is no longer the case.
With the help of an experienced cosmetic surgeon, you can discover a treatment plan that will rid you of your visible veins. Whether you’re plagued by discomfort or low self-confidence because of these veins, you don’t have to accept them for the rest of your life.
The following treatments are successfully used at Moein Surgical Arts to treat spider and varicose veins:
Are Those Blue Veins on Your Legs Really Spider Veins?
Are you unsure that what you suffer from is truly spider or varicose veins? Let’s discuss.
If you have visibly blue or painful veins anywhere on your body, it’s likely that you suffer from either spider veins or varicose veins. These veins are a product of damage to the vein caused by heredity, obesity, or direct trauma to the area. When these veins become damaged, they will show through the surface of the skin and can either be cosmetically discouraging or even painful.
Do You Suffer from Spider Veins or Varicose Veins: How to Tell the Difference
While the terms are often used interchangeably, they are in fact two separate conditions. If you are simply bothered by the looks of your veins they are likely spider veins. If your veins cause you physical discomfort, they are likely varicose veins.
Spider Veins –
Spider veins will be your cosmetically bothersome veins. They typically do not cause pain and can range in color, showing through your skin as red, blue, or purple blood vessels. Most commonly, people experience spider veins on their legs but can have them on other parts of the body as well.
These twisted blood vessels can present themselves for a number of reasons and the exact cause isn’t often known, but there are leading factors. It is more common to experience them following pregnancy, or as you age, and it’s not uncommon for more to appear over time.
Varicose Veins –
These will be the visible veins that actually cause you pain or discomfort. You will often experience an aching pain in the veins due to the damage they have experienced. While they again are most common in the legs, veins anywhere on your body can become varicose veins.
Varicose veins will be the more serious of the two ailments, with an underlying condition or a more serious problem being the cause of damaged veins. These can be things like blood clots or an infection and they should always be examined by a medical professional to accurately rule out any worrisome condition.
Why Should You Treat Your Spider or Varicose Veins?
While the main ailment associated with spider and varicose veins is simply cosmetic, that’s not reason enough to leave them untreated. Resolving an issue like spider veins can bring you increased confidence in your body and yourself, allowing you to live life the way you’d like to.
No more choosing pants over shorts, even though it’s 80° outside. No more feeling self-conscious about your body because you’re unhappy with the visible veins that are a sudden part of your aging skin.
By choosing to treat your spider veins, you’re making a conscious decision to take control of your body. By choosing to treat your varicose veins, you’re choosing to stop living in pain and discomfort, and perhaps to stop living in compression garments that dull the ache.
While cosmetically you will see some relief, treating these veins is actually helping to reverse the damage that has been caused to them. Your treatments can also slow or prevent your development of more spider or varicose veins in the future, making it a win-win across the board.

If you fail to do your research or find yourself at a provider without vein treatment experience, you will likely spend more time and money in the long run opting for an alternative treatment with a different provider.
