Spider veins, unsightly red or blue lines at the surface of the skin on the legs or sometimes face, can seriously detract from your appearance. They can make even the most shapely, toned leg or wrinkle-free face look old beyond its years. This can be especially bothersome in a southern city like Tampa, where spider veins may be on display most of the year as you wear skirts, shorts, and dresses to manage the heat.
They are caused most often by a backup of blood in the veins as well as other factors, including too much sun, heredity, excessive weight, hormone changes (sometimes caused by birth control pills), jobs that require a lot of standing, and excessive pressure in the abdomen. Women are at higher risk for developing these blemishes than are men.
Fortunately, there are several spider vein treatments on the market to fix this problem. At Bayshore Plastic Surgery in Tampa, spider veins are removed with VeinGogh. This state-of-the-art machine delivers an electric current into the vein causing it to collapse and disappear. Older spider vein removal methods sometimes cause scarring and a lot of discomfort, but VeinGogh does neither of those things. It can also be used on any skin type, which isn’t the case for all treatments.
