Spider Veins

Also known as varicose veins, spider veins are something that can curse many women. Spider veins are the clusters of veins in red, blue, or purple that form on the thighs, calves, and ankles of women. These are a function of heredity, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, and career choices. These spider veins can be embarrassing and cause women to hide their otherwise perfect legs. Spider veins are not just something that happen to older women, they can appear at any age. When they show up early, women may seek ways to reduce the appearance of spider veins. This can be done easily and completely with cosmetic dermatology treatments at Utah Valley Dermatology.
