Radiofrequency Treatment for Spider Veins

Spider veins, which are the smallest type of varicose veins, are commonly found in the calf and behind the knees, especially in women who wear skirts. If left untreated, spider veins progress and become more widespread. Besides the unsightly appearance, they can cause discomfort and, in advanced stages, lead to spider vein ruptures, resulting in leg bleeding. Treatment with non-surgical methods can be completed in as little as 10 minutes.

Causes of Spider Veins

The exact cause of spider veins, the smallest type of varicose veins in humans, has not been fully determined. However, the reasons considered include genetics, occupation, and lifestyle.

Symptoms of Spider Veins

Symptoms vary from patient to patient and are initially so small that they are not visible to the naked eye. However, as they progress, they may darken and become noticeable. Patients who reach this stage often experience discomfort, especially in their feet.

Found on the Legs and Face

Spider veins, which are present throughout the body, particularly affect the face and legs. Spider veins are frequently observed on the back of the knees and calves. These two areas have different causes. The cause of spider veins in the legs is mentioned above, while spider veins on the face are especially common in individuals who are exposed to excessive heat and sun or consume alcohol.

How Is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?

Among the non-surgical treatments available for other varicose vein problems, there are three different treatment methods for spider veins: laser treatment (may require more sessions), foam or sclerotherapy (cannot be applied to varicose veins of 1mm and smaller), and Radiofrequency (RF). Below, we will explore the most successful method of spider vein treatment, Radiofrequency, and see how it is performed in the video we have prepared.

Radiofrequency Spider Vein Treatment

Also known as Radiofrequency (RF), which is an advanced form of laser, it is especially applied in the treatment of spider veins of small and medium size. A thin tip, even thinner than hair, is used to enter the veins, and radio waves are applied. You will instantly see the problematic veins being destroyed. The destroyed spider veins are absorbed by the body and eliminated.
