Also called telangiectasias, spider veins are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They’re caused by increased pressure in the veins, which can be a result of standing for long periods. For this reason, people in certain fields such as nursing and teaching are often more susceptible to developing spider veins. However, they may also be hereditary. Spider veins are often blue, red, or purple, and have the appearance of a spiderweb, which is how they got their name. They’re most often found on the face and legs.
Vascular lesions could non-invasively be removed using the appropriate laser platform which is specialized t this type of treatment.
