Spider Vein Removal
Telangiectasia also known as ‘Spider Veins’ are small clusters of red or blue veins, they can appear on both the legs and face and can occur in healthy people or a result of an underlying illness.
Spider Vein Removal
Telangiectasia is a common skin condition that usually effects clients in their 40s, 50’s and 60’s. The condition is where widened blood vessels cause threadlike red lines or patterns on the skin, these lines usually appear slowly over a period of time and usually in small clusters.
These ‘spider’ like veins are common on areas such the cheeks, nose and legs, whilst they are in no way life threatening, they are usually noticeable and can cause clients to feel self conscious. At Aesthetics of Liverpool we use Short Wave Diathermy to effectively remove Spider Veins.
Short Wave DiathermyShort Wave Diathermy treatment involves the use of a fine tip needle. When the needle is applied to the Cherry Angioma it will deliver radio energy to destroy the wart tissue and cauterise blood vessels to prevent excess bleeding. The procedure will leave behind a small wound which is then covered using a small plaster.
What causes Telangiectasia?
Telangiectasia is a common sign of ageing. As we age the collagen in our skin begins to break down causing skin to become thinner and veins to appear more visible. There are a number of environmental factors that can influence the appearance of spider veins such as sun damage or exposure to cold temperatures. Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking can also accentuate their appearance, whilst hormones and genetics can also play a role.
What does a Telangiectasia/Spider Veins look like?
Spider Veins vary in appearance but can have the following characteristics:
- Appear close to the surface of the skin.
- Look like spider webs or tree branches.
- They are usually red and blue.
- Most commonly occur on the legs and face.
- Can often occur next to Varicose Veins.
Can I prevent Telangiectasia / Spider Veins?
There are a number of environmental and lifestyle factors that influence Telangiectasia. Leading a healthy balanced lifestyle, avoiding smoking and drinking can be taken as a preventative measure. Also wearing an SPF on a daily basis and following a skincare routine incorporating a hydrator will improve skins appearance.
