Spider veins are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. These super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it. A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins, including weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing, pregnancy, heredity, events that cause hormonal shifts and the use of certain medications.
They usually take on one of three basic patterns:
Varicose veins differ from spider veins in a number of ways. Varicose veins are larger - usually more than a quarter-inch in diameter, darker in colour and tend to bulge. They are also more likely to cause pain and be related to more serious vein disorders.
Women of any age may be good candidates for treatment, but most will fall in the 30-to-60 category. In some , spider veins may become noticeable very early on - in the teen years. In others, the veins may not become obvious until they reach their 40s.
Men who do have spider veins, but often do not consider them to be a cosmetic problem because the veins are concealed by hair growth on the leg. However, the treatment is just as effective for men.
Sclerotherapy can enhance your appearance and your self confidence, but it's unrealistic to believe that every affected vein will disappear completely as a result of treatment. After each sclerotherapy session, the veins will appear lighter. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results.
Sclerotherapy of spider veins is a relatively simple procedure that requires no anaesthesia. Most patients are pleased with the difference sclerotherapy makes. The skin of your legs will appear younger, clearer and more healthy-looking.
Although sclerotherapy will obliterate the noticeable veins, it is important to remember that treatment will not prevent new spider veins from emerging in the future. You may find that you need 'touch-ups' or full treatments for new veins that surface.

Today it has progressed along way and with ongoing improvements and modern technology Dyathermy is a safe, comfortable and effective treatment and very much in demand with the clients of today.
Facial Thread Veins
These are not broken capillaries but rather permanently dilated capillaries. They have very thin walls which constantly dilate and contract. As we age. These vessels lose their elasticity and can become permanently dilated.
There are numerous causes including: ageing, hereditary, pregnancy, the rubbing of spectacles, smoking, energetic sports, temperature extremes and harsh weather exposure, hormones and skin fragility. They are commonly seen in a maturing 'English Rose' complexion.
These are bright red vascular blemishes which lie just under the surface of the skin. They are dome shaped or slightly raised and are most common on the trunk or torso and particularly the midriff back or front. Most people aged over 30 have at least one and they are even more common in men than women.
A Spider Naevus is a central dilated blood vessel, with smaller capillaries radiating from it like the legs of a spider. They can be found in isolation or gathered together in clumps on areas such as the cheeks.
Skin Tags are very commonly and most frequently found on the neck and face. They often appear with a neck, like a mushroom and vary in size from a tiny speck, smaller than a grain of uncooked rice, to the size of a large pea or even larger. They are often found in areas of friction such as the underarm, under the breasts or around the neck where necklaces may irritate.
These are tiny white hard lumps containing keratin which lie superficially under the surface of the skin and can be easily treated with Dyathermy techniques. Their exact cause is unknown although they are often associated with dry skin which can be acidic.
There are various types of warts, including plane, common, seborrhoeic and verrucas. All can be easily and successfully treated. Warts can develop individually or in clusters. Seborrhoeic warts become more common with increasing age and can grow up to two inches across.
Dermatosis Papulosa Nigra
Is a common disorder which develops in adolescence on black skin and is identified by smooth, dome shaped, brown to black papules seen mainly on the cheeks, neck and upper chest.
Hairs from moles can be treated by those trained in Dyathermy techniques. A GP's written agreement must be obtained before treatment. Once treatment has started the mole may reduce in size and colour. Hairs in moles are generally deep terminal hairs, generally with a very rich blood supply to them. Repeat treatments, as with electrical epilation are required.
