Most people have an unsightly vein or two they wish they could hide, that prevents them from looking as beautiful as they feel on the inside. These include leg veins, broken vessels, and facial spider veins.If you’re feeling self-conscious about your veins, treatments are available.
What are thread, spider and varicose veins?
Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins. They often protrude beyond the skin’s surface and can be dark blue, red or skin-coloured in appearance. Thread veins (or spider veins, as they are also called) are like varicose veins but are much smaller and as such require different treatment. Spider veins are veins that branch off others and appear to have a spider-like appearance.
What causes thread veins?
Thread (or spider) veins tend to develop as we age. They appear when our skin and blood vessels lose elasticity. Hormonal changes, due to pregnancy or the menopause for example, can lead to thread veins. Standing for prolonged amounts of time and frequent flying can also cause thread veins to form.
Lifestyle choices can also be an influential factor. For example, too much exposure to the sun, wind or extreme temperatures can cause spider veins to develop. Unfortunately, thanks to your genes, you can even inherit your family’s susceptibility to these little veins.
