The best treatments for spider veins in the Canary Islands

What are spider veins?
First of all, varicose veins and spider veins are not the same thing. Although they belong to the same family, the two skin conditions are distinct.
Varicose veins are long-lasting accretions of the superficial veins. On the other hand, spider veins are clusters of veins that are smaller and finer than varicose veins. They are also visible on the skin at the superficial level, but their color is red or blue and their size is smaller. Their appearance is similar to a spider's web, hence their name.
Beyond the aesthetic aspect, spider veins do not usually manifest symptoms. Generally, the biggest problem they can cause is some kind of itching in the area. However, eliminating them can be a big step in improving our appearance.
Although both are more common in women than in men, our treatments for spider veins in the Canary Islands are aimed at people of all types.

This treatment for spider veins in our clinic in the Canary Islands gradually decreases their size. At the same time the discomfort they may cause is eliminated, and the appearance of the affected area, usually the legs, is significantly improved.
