Get rid of spider veins in Tijuana

Come to Tijuana and get rid of the spider veins, those little twisted leg veins that affect your aesthetics when wearing a bathing suit or bare legs.

Spider veins are those small veins that appear under the skin and are presented in lines of various shapes. Their medical name is telangiectasia and they consist of dilations of the capillary vessels located under the skin.

Sometimes they can evolve into varicose veins, swollen veins that protrude from the skin and can cause circulatory problems. However, spider veins do not represent a medical problem although they have aesthetic effects that many would like to make disappear.

What can be done for both cases

What do the spider veins are?

Spider veins are those small red or blue veins that appear on the skin, usually on the legs, but can appear anywhere on the body. They are inflamed blood vessels under the skin, due to obstructions, increased blood pressure, stress, or others.
Spider veins can result from physical changes, such as pregnancy, obesity, or from standing for long periods.
They generally do not indicate a health hazard, although any spider-related discomfort should be reported to your doctor.
In some cases can develop more serious inflammation and become varicose veins.
The doctor can prescribe a treatment to eliminate them and recover the normal condition of your legs or any other area.

Are spider veins dangerous?

Spider mites appear more frequently in women than in men, and are often associated with pregnancy. They do not represent a health hazard, although it is recommended that you pay attention to related symptoms, such as bruising, heat in the area, cramps, or pain.

See a doctor to monitor them to prevent the development of varicose veins or other problems.

The simplest treatment for spider veins is the use of compression stockings to stimulate blood circulation, while surgery is usually indicated for advanced cases of varicose veins.

Other recommendations are to rest with your legs raised and not to stand for long periods of time.

Finally, you can find a solution to any esthetical problem at Vive Medical Spa and Vive Plastic Surgery in Tijuana.

A non-invasive solution for your legs

There are several non-surgical options, such as sclerotherapy, which involves the application of very fine needles to remove the points where blood does not circulate properly.
Another option is the application of laser directly to the vein without damaging nearby tissues. This procedure eliminates the damaged stitches and forces the body to repair it through scarring, with the emergence of a healthy vein.
This treatment has the advantage of not being invasive like surgery, besides being painless and without risks. It requires applications every 6 or 12 weeks, according to the medical evaluation.
