Reticular and Spider Vein Treatments

If you’ve noticed small green or blue veins on your face or outer thigh area, you may have reticular veins. These are usually just a few millimeters in diameter (as well as smaller and flatter than varicose veins). Although they don’t bulge like varicose veins, they can still be a source of both embarrassment and discomfort. At West Medical, we offer an array of vein treatments to minimize and eliminate these unpleasant vein conditions so that you can live more comfortably in your own skin.

The Difference Between Spider and Reticular Veins

Spider veins are thin and tiny veins that have a web-like appearance and tend to be closer to the skin’s surface compared to varicose veins. Spider veins are often found around the thighs, ankles, and legs, and can be red, blue, or purple.

In terms of size, reticular veins tend to be in between large varicose veins and small spider veins. If left untreated, spider veins can develop from reticular veins.

The Importance of Medical Treatment

Like the rest of the body’s many interlinked systems, it doesn’t take long for one vein issue to turn into additional problems. Once varicose veins have developed, there’s a greater chance for spider veins to appear over time due to hindered circulation. This is why it’s so important to have a professional examine and treat your condition to ensure that no further harm is done.
