As spring kicks in, summer is not far behind and this is when most women feel the pressure to flaunt their picture-perfect legs. For some individuals, the only worst thing other than realizing that they have missed a few hairs around the knees is to spot deeply colored veins. Also known as spider veins, vascular lesions affect millions of adults across the globe. If you are also suffering from this condition, there’s hope! At Spark Laser Center, we offer vascular lesion treatment solutions for women.
What Are Vascular Lesions?
It is one of the most unappealing skin conditions that affect men and women equally. Vascular lesions can resemble a star with numerous small veins pointing out from a center point. Also known as telangiectasias, vascular lesions cause tiny blood vessels to congregate on the skin’s surface (in clusters). Their appearances can be blue, purple or red colored veins; most commonly found on the individual’s legs or facial area.
Vascular lesions are typically caused by structural abnormalities within one’s blood vessels. Veins are designed to carry blood from various parts of the body and back to the heart, and on the way utilize a series of one-way valves. For different reasons, the one-way valves may not function properly, thus allowing the backflow of blood within the veins. Subsequent pooling of blood increases the pressure inside the vein, weakens the blood vessel, and allows spider veins to form.
One has a higher chance of developing vascular lesions if she:
- Stays immobile for long periods of time
- Has obesity
- Sits and stands for prolonged periods of time
- Lacks of exercise
