A lot of people experience the discomfort and embarrassment associated with varicose veins, spider veins and other vascular lesions.
Tangled up in telangiectasia
Telangiectasia is a long word to describe small clusters of broken blood vessels. Also known as spider veins, they’re the ones you usually find on your face and other areas on your upper body. The annoying red blood vessels can form during pregnancy or when you suffer from viral infections.
Telangiectasia can also be a sign of a more serious condition like liver disease, so it’s important to get them checked out by a doctor.
What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are the swollen, twisted and raised veins that you can see under the surface of your skin. You’re most likely to develop them on your legs and they can cause mild or moderate pain. Varicose veins are usually larger than spider veins and the bigger they are, the more complex the treatment will be. If your varicose veins are causing you significant or increasing pain, see your doctor.
What are the factors that can put you at risk of developing vascular abnormalities?
• High blood pressure
• Sun exposure
• Old age
• Gender (sadly, women are more susceptible than men)
• Regular inactivity
• Hormones (pregnancy, puberty, and menopause)
• Contraceptive pills
• Wearing excessively tight clothing
How can I cure my vascular lesions/spider veins/telangiectasia?
The best cure on the market is laser therapy. It is great for spider veins and is effective on small varicose veins. It can be performed with a variety of lasers and IPLs, including the Candela GentleYAG and the Palomar StarLux. When used over a period of time with adequate follow up treatments, laser therapy has a high success rate at reducing the appearance of unsightly veins.
Other tips for keeping your vascular abnormalities at bay:
• Avoid high heels when possible.
• Stay fit and maintain a healthy exercise routine
• Try not to sit down for long periods of time and take regular breaks if your job or study requires it.
