Blood vessels in the human body can suffer from several disorders, some of which result directly from lifestyles. Others on the other hand result from abnormalities within the body without human influence. One of the conditions that can be caused by lifestyle as well as natural factors is spider veins. These veins are characterized by several features that make them unique and easy to identify immediately they start to form.

Properties of these blood vessels are their large size, and swollen appearance. Normally they can be seen through the skin because they are twisted and turned and appear in the legs and face. Causes can be natural or human-induced. Major ones include use of control pills, obesity, blood clots history, postmenopausal hormonal replacement, and heredity. There are several treatment options, but spider vein removal stands as one of the most used in Austin, TX today.

Spider vein disorder occurs in both men and women, but women are affected more, with the frequency increasing as they age. Varicose and spider veins have been found to occur in at least 30% to 60% of the adult population in the US. Symptoms are quite characteristic. Major ones are aching and cramping pain in the legs and fatigue, heaviness, tingling, burning, restlessness, and throbbing feeling in legs.

Raising legs can act as a short-term remedy as it relieves the pain a bit. Pain could also be relieved by wearing a support hose. In women, the condition seems to get worse at certain points during menstrual cycles and pregnancy. Other symptoms that occur but on rare occasions include ulcers, thrombophlebitis, darkening of the skin color around the ankles, and swelling of legs.

Treatment options are many and they include changing lifestyle, sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, radiofrequency occlusion, surgery, and laser and intense pulsed light. Changing lifestyle may be helpful during the early stages of the condition. Therefore, discovering the condition early enough would make it much easier to treat more effectively. However, relapsing to previous lifestyle may cause the condition to return.

There are situations when the vessels may enlarge too much and worsen the situation. In such situations, surgery is the best treatment option. In a surgical procedure, ligation is done together with stripping where the former involves trying the affected veins while the latter involves removing segments. The removal happens in a long strip. Another removal option is ambulatory phlebectomy, which eliminates the veins through tiny incisions without requiring stitches.

Surgery is only applicable on large veins like it is mentioned above and may be conducted under different anesthesia conditions. Patients can go back home the same day without being admitted in the hospital. It is good to know that most insurance firms do not cover the costs for the treatment. As such, consulting with the insurer before going for the treatment would be a good idea.

How much it costs to remove the deformed blood vessels varies a lot. Different factors determine the cost including location of the vessels and the how much serious the condition has progressed. Normally it can be done on an outpatient basis in an office.
