AFRAID OF SPIDERS? The fine, web-like, starburst-shaped network of veins commonly known as “spider veins” usually appears on the thighs, calves, or ankles. “Telangiectasias,” as they are medically known, are caused by abnormal blood flow and weakening of the blood vessel walls in the affected veins. Often caused by monthly hormonal fluctuations of the female cycle and pregnancy, spider veins are far more common among women than men. However, any condition that places increased pressure on the veins can result in spider-vein development. The most common treatment for removing these unsightly veins is “sclerotherapy,” which involves injections of saline solution into the veins with a very fine needle. This causes irritation in the lining of the vein, resulting in its collapse and disappearance. We welcome your call at 402-421-3335 for “A Family Tradition of Advanced Skin Care.” P.S. Lasers are sometimes used to eradicate spider veins. “Keeping your skin healthy and beautiful is a 30 year tradition.” South Lincoln Dermatology 2625 Stockwell • Lincoln, NE 68502
