No one really knows the cause of spider veins, but it is assumed that heredity, local trauma, and hormonal levels are believed to be contributing factors. As you get older, you will be acquiring more spider veins and women are twice as likely as men to exhibit spider veins. Spider veins are formed by the dilation of the small veins under the surface of the skin, mostly on the legs. They look like red or purple sunbursts or web patterns. Spider veins are also referred to as telangiectasia or broken capillaries and they measure between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter. On the face, spider veins are painless. Larger veins on the leg are known as varicose veins. Varicose veins are swollen or enlarged blood vessels caused by a weakening in the vein’s wall or valves. They are located somewhat deeper than spider veins, are sometimes raised, and often appear blue. These are treated with sclerotherapy and the smaller surrounding spider veins are treated with the ThermaVein technology.
Hi my name is John Clark and welcome to our I HATE SPIDER VEINS.COM webpage. I started this service to remove facial spider veins when I came across the Thermavein RF technology on business trip to London. I had a chance to see it used on patients in a high-profile clinic and I was blown away by the results that I saw. You need to know that I have a very deep background in cosmetic devices which include lasers, IPL’s and other related technologies. When these technologies were used on treating facial spider veins (which I have plenty of) it was always the same old story – no immediate removal. Wait a few weeks and come back for some more treatments etc. etc. etc. It was somewhat of a game you had to play with patients to convince them that they had a successful treatment. Then I saw the ThermaVein RF machine being used on patients. The spider vein was instantly removed with little to no pain and the patient finished the treatment satisfied. Not only is the treatment procedure safe and highly effective – it doesn’t cost a lot. Many times, physicians and clinics purchase expensive laser or IPL equipment for something other than spider vein removal. They then try to convince patients that the machine can be used for spider veins, when in fact it only has a moderate effect. This is kind of like putting a square peg in a round hole.
