Perhaps one of the worst aspects of spider veins is that they can appear no matter how old you are. Brought on by pregnancy, hormones, age, heredity, and even something like your profession, spider veins can be considered unattractive for many women and men. These red, blue, or even purple veins can appear anywhere on the thighs, calves, or ankles. You may not even notice them until someone points them out to you or you happen to be looking in the right area. While they are painless and usually quite harmless, the sight of them can be quite unpleasant for many. As such, you may be wondering about possible spider vein removal treatments. Luckily, there are options.
The good news about receiving treatment for your spider veins is that basically anyone can be an excellent candidate. Essentially, you could be a good candidate for a spider vein removal treatment so long as you are healthy and dedicated to removing them. Initially, you’ll have a consultation with our professional, who will go over your overall health and examine the problem area closely to ensure that the spider veins aren’t a result of a larger problem. Overall, however, we’ll simply want to make sure that we can offer you the right procedure for the level of severity of your spider veins.
The most common spider vein removal treatment is sclerotherapy. This is an easy procedure that requires little effort on your part. You’ll simply come in and we will inject a sclerosing solution into each spider vein. Over time, the vein will become irritated by the solution and collapse. This makes the vein disappear from view on the outside, thus improving the appearance of the area.
Besides sclerotherapy, you may also recommend you have laser treatment. During this procedure, a laser will direct an intense beam of light. This will essentially destroy the vein. Obviously, the more veins you have, the longer the procedure will take. In addition, you may need multiple treatments for maximum results.
