Dato’ Dr. Ho Teik Kok, an experienced Vascular Surgeon shares his views on spider veins. Spider veins could be the symptom of more serious underlying problem in trunked veins. Patient could see a Vascular Surgeon to get a proper scan and diagnosis, to find out the real source of problem causing spider veins. The key is to treat the root cause, instead of just treating the symptoms. Otherwise, the problem will recur, and come back again.
Spider veins are web-like veins in bluish purple colour on the skin. It is the first stage of Varicose Veins. Often, people view it as a cosmetic issue and tend to ignore it.
Spider veins, is not difficult to remove. There are a lot of treatments out there offering spider veins removal. However, it is important to have a proper ultrasound scan of your trunked veins (deep veins) by a Vascular Surgeon. By using colour duplex ultrasound, Vascular Surgeon is able to determine ‘reflux’, a signal given by the diseased vein. If ‘reflux’ is identified, it is better to treat the diseased vein (root source of spider veins) by addressing the root cause of the problem.
If reflux is not found during ultrasound, you can either leave the spider veins alone or remove it cosmetically.
It is important to treat the root cause of the problem to prevent spider veins from coming back, and to prevent spider veins from progressing to more serious stage.
If the root cause is not treated, spider veins will keep coming back.
Get it check and cure your symptoms by treating the source of disease.
