Are Spider Veins Only a Cosmetic Problem?

While spider veins can be a cosmetic concern, they also can be the result of a deeper problem, such as venous reflux. Venous reflux is a condition in which blood leaks back with gravity and pools in the vein, causing veins to swell with blood, and in turn, causes other smaller veins to become enlarged and swollen with stagnant blood. With the use of a Doppler Duplex Ultrasound scan, we can determine if your spider veins are the result of venous reflux, pinpoint the exact source of the problem, and treat the venous reflux and spider veins.
