Safely Eliminate Spider Veins with Sclerotherapy
- Posted on: Oct 15 2014
Has your age or lifestyle caused you to notice thin, broken looking veins just below the surface of your skin? These little vessels often appear red, blue or purple and show near the legs common stress points such as the knees and ankles. Commonly called spider veins, these broken veins are not medically concerning but can be aesthetically bothersome to male and female patients alike.
Spider veins often appear when the body takes on new levels of stress such as weight gain, pregnancy or work job that requires many hours of standing. They can also appear with age or in patients who have a genetic predisposition for spider veins.
Sclerotherapy can be used to treat and eliminate the appearance of spider veins. During the procedure, a tiny needle is used to inject a saline-like substance into the effected vein, causing it to “die” and soon be absorbed into your surrounding, healthy leg tissue. Sclerotherapy is pain-free, despite its use of needles and you should expect to see results after just one treatment. For stubborn spider veins and lighter skin tones you should expect to require additional treatment for optimal results.
