You spend hours in the gym to improve your physique and you eat right to keep your body healthy, but one thing you cannot solve yourself are the spider veins that occur where you appreciate them the least. It’s not fun to show off your finely sculpted legs you have been toning in that new skirt if your legs are blighted by the unsightly appearance of spider veins. And worse, sometimes spider veins appear on your face and there is very little you can do to cover them. These veins can be embarrassing and for some people they are also painful, itchy and throb occasionally. The good news is, you do not have to live with this condition forever. There are effective treatments performed by Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology that can alleviate and solve this frustrating condition.

While spider veins are not dangerous and only rarely cause discomfort, they are an annoying blemish to the appearance of your skin. Over time, the valves within blood vessels weaken, causing the blood to pool and form the spiderwebbed pattern on your skin.
