What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins.  Veins are the blood vessels that carry blood back to the heart. There are one-way valves in the veins that stop blood falling back to your feet when you stand up.  These valves sometimes fail.  When this happens blood pools in your legs, which gives symptoms of discomfort, aching, swelling, skin changes or more serious skin damage (ulcers).   Any vein can become varicose, but the most commonly affected are veins in your legs and feet.  Varicose veins left untreated will not improve but rather slow worsen over time.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins, as the name suggests often the shape of a ‘spider web pattern’. They are close to the surface of the skin and tend to be very visible, red, black, blue or purple in colour. Spider veins tend to be found on your face and legs. Sometimes we recommend an ultrasound scan to further investigate the cause of your leg spider veins, as you can have underlining venous incompetency (better known as varicose veins).
Spider veins are like varicose veins but a lot smaller. Valves inside the tiny veins are not working properly allowing blood to backflow, pool or burst the vessel – which becomes visible under your skin. At SVH we offer an easy, needless solution to reduce, soften and fade facial and leg spider veins.
