Spider Veins:  A "Cosmetic" Scarlet Letter
Adapted from the So6ix Magazine Article
by Harvey Jenkins PhD, MD
No one ever lost a job opportunity because of them.  And no one has ever been made the 'pariah' of their community because of them.  But, you would certainly think so, considering the number of people who "bear" them, and desperately want to get rid of them.

What are Spider Veins?

Telangiectasias, or more commonly known as spider veins, are small, dilated blood vessels found near the surface of skin or mucous membranes.  Although it is far from a cosmetic "badge of shame" or the proverbial "Scarlet letter", spider veins are a problem for millions of men and women worldwide, and it is estimate that 60% of the population suffers from spider veins or varicose veins.  You don't have to do anything 'wrong" to get them.  40% of women age 40 to 50 have them.  And 72% of women over 60 have them.

 Anatomically, they measure between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter, and are found virtually anywhere on the body.  They come to the attention of the medical aesthetics specialist most often when they occur on the face, around the nose and cheek or on the thighs or legs.    Although there are genetic and hereditary causes of telangiectasias, the most common encountered causes are the acquired forms.    Acquired telangiectasias include those caused by venous hypertension (elevated blood pressure in the veins) with associated varicose veins (enlarged veins), pregnancy wherein circulating hormones that weaken vessel walls are produced, and occupations that involved prolonged sitting or standing.  There is also a role of excessive sun exposure and environmental insults that promote their presence.

Is there a Cure?
Most people think that there is no cure or treatment for spider veins. There is, and it is simple.  Painful injections with sclerotherapy agents to coagulate veins are no longer necessary for spider veins.  New, "light-based" therapies are allowing physicians to successfully treat these "unsightly veins", simply, with minimal discomfort, non-invasively and safely.

The treatment of choice these days for spider veins which meet the criteria of ease, comfort, simplicity and safety is the Long-Pulse 1064 Nd:YAG laser.  The wavelength of the device is specific for targeting the "red" color in the Hemoglobin (the oxygen transport molecule

of the blood cell).  The surrounding area of skin and soft tissue is not selected by the laser, leaving it intact.  The collision of the hemoglobin with the energy packet of the laser induces an abrupt heat reaction which leads to coagulation of the blood vessel.  The vessel area is usually bleached immediately.  The coagulated fragments of the vessel are then gradually dissolved and resorbed by the body.

In Oklahoma City, Spider vein removal remains an "in-demand" procedure. However, many people with this problem are unaware that it can be treated so simply.  Prices range from a few hundreds of dollars to a thousand on average, but obviously depend on the number of veins, their size, how extensive they  are, and the number of times treatments the area requires.   The great news and bottom line is that if you have Spider veins, and you find them unsightly and unsettling, you can spare yourself the angst of this cosmetic badge with a simple call to BodyTrends, your cosmetic laser center or med spa.
