Here’s the low-down on the causes, symptoms and treatments for both varicose veins and spider veins. Spider veins are the less serious of the two and are seen as small discoloured veins that have a spider-web like appearance typically on the legs. These veins rarely cause problems with pain and can be left untreated. In contrast, varicose veins occur due to faulty values in veins of the legs.

How a skin therapy specialist achieves visible results

After working in advertising for nearly twenty years I decided to make a change by packing in a highly successful career and going back to University. After studying a few podiatry papers I realised a more “hands-on” approach with people was for me and sought to find a career with more of a feel-good factor. This led me into holistic therapies and after studying for another two years I started working as a beauty therapist in a Spa environment.
