Human physiology is a very amazing thing, as it shows the interrelation between delicate connections which allow for feats of strength, endurance, and living life to the fullest. The circulatory system is prominently fascinating, as this network of vessels exemplifies the circle of life within the human body. As larger vessels carry the brunt of the circulation, capillary networks are also highly important, since these delicate interchanges ensure that oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood is always going in the right direction.
For many individuals, their relationship with capillaries only becomes evident once they become visible as spider veins. This occurrence happens when the delicate walls of the vessels rupture and blood pooling causes discoloration. The appearance may be even more prominent because many capillary matrices are close to the surface of the skin.
Putting On A Brave Face
While spider veins may occur on any area of the body, they can be especially noticeable on the legs, hands, and even the face. Sutton Place Laser Vein Care has a number of clients who do suffer from facial spider veins, and one of their larger concerns is whether treatment will cause scaring or more blemishes in an effort to remedy the initial problem.
Advances in laser vein care have helped to minimize risks, with non-invasive and outpatient treatment that can begin to show results in as little as one or two sessions. Our procedures for addressing facial spider veins can vary depending on the patient, but sclerotherapy is one of the safer and faster methods for seeing results. This process is often combines with ultrasonic diagnostic measures to identify places where further spider veins may evidence, and generate a proactive approach to a better physical appearance.
Although most of our clients gain great confidence and a better outlook on life through these actions, addressing spider veins can also improve capillary function, as the methods re-tone the vessels for better elasticity. This means that the effects can be seen and felt, on physical and emotional levels.
