Spider veins are common and usually occur on the legs and face. They appear just under the skin as swollen reddish or purplish blood vessels.
On the face they appear most commonly around the chin, cheeks or nose.
Spider veins may cause you distress because they are so noticeable especially when on your face.
They are caused by the normal aging process, pregnancy or other hormonal shifts, sun damage, genetics or certain medication use.
However, spider veins removal in Dubai is easy.
Here at Australia Medical Centre we use a special laser to treat spider veins that are smaller or with sclerotherapy for larger spider veins.
In the laser therapy, a laser beam with a particular frequency is directed at the spider vein breaking it up. Normal body functioning will remove the remnants out of the body via the lymphatic system. Using the laser option is, in most cases, the best for facial spider veins.
For other bigger spider veins found mainly on the legs, the preferred method of treatment is using sclerotherapy. This involves injecting a special chemical solution into the vein which slowly dissolves the spider vein. The solution succeeds in closing off that vein so that blood is rerouted to other healthier veins. It may take a few weeks for the appearance of spider veins to completely disappear.
In some cases, the combination of laser and sclerotherapy is used.
If you’ve had spider veins removal in Dubai on the legs, you will be advised to:
- Wear special supportive stockings for up to three months.

- Move around especially if you are sitting in one position for longer than one hour.
