Treating Dilated Blood Vessels / Spider Veins in Melbourne
Spider veins, also known as broken capillaries or vessels, are dilated blood vessels that appear as persistent thread-like lines underneath the skin surface. They are typically thin and small, resembling branches of trees or spider webs, and can appear in different colours such as red, blue, or purple. While spider veins can be found in different locations on the face and body, they are often seen on the cheeks, nose, and chin.
Spider veins are more common in women than men, and while not all spider veins are permanent, some may persist and require professional treatment. There are several treatment options available for spider veins in Melbourne, Australia. Professional treatment for spider veins in Australia may be necessary in cases where many capillaries are clustered together, forming a red patch or bruise-like appearance that may become permanent.
What Are The Causes of Spider Veins?
Just like other skin issues, there are several causes of spider veins. Some common causes include aging, genetics, sun exposure, hormones, obesity and even medical conditions such as liver disease can contribute to the development of spider veins. Treatment for spider veins in Austraila is a popular option because it can help fade spider veins faster, resulting in an improved overall appearance.
Prevention of Spider Veins
While seeking treatment for spider veins in Australia is an effective solution, there are also preventative measures you can take to stop them from developing or worsening. By incorporating simple daily practices, you can reduce your risk of new spider veins and prevent existing ones from worsening. Here are some ways to prevent spider veins:
Having a highly sedentary lifestyle can promote the development of spider veins. Make sure to include some amount of exercise in your daily routine to prevent the same. Even low-impact movements like walking and yoga can help.
Maintain a healthy body weight
Obesity can lead to the development of spider veins. Maintaining an ideal weight improves blood circulation which prevents the onset of spider veins.
Over-sun exposure can lead to the formation of spider veins. This is especially necessary if you have spider veins on your face. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to broken blood vessels which result in spider veins.

Treatment for spider veins in Melbourne, Australia
The treatment of facial vessels (telangiectasia) has minimal downtime and extremely high success rates. Larger vessels such as spider or deep blue veins can also be treated successfully and are located on the face and body extremities (e.g. legs). However, larger varicose veins found on the legs are untreatable using light-based modalities.
Using IPL or ND:Yag Laser sufficient heat is delivered to heat the blood vessels. These vessels will become occluded and blood will be re-directed into other channels. The occluded vessels will then be absorbed by the body within a week or two, leading to an improvement in skin appearance.
It is important to note that because vessels appear in different sizes and depths within the skin several treatments using IPL and/or Laser may be required to see optimal results.
