SPIDER VEIN REDUCTION TREATMENT
Say “Good-Bye“ to Spider Veins and Hello to Beautiful Legs through Sclerotherapy!
Spider veins also known as thread veins are tiny dilated blood vessels that appear near the surface of the skin. They typically have a red or purplish coloring and resemble a tangled spider web, although they are easily visible through the skin they do not make the skin bulge as varicose veins do.
For most people spider veins are just a cosmetic concern; however, they can be an early indicator of an underlying venous disease deeper developing deeper within the legs and thighs.
Spider veins appear most often on your legs because your veins are trying to pump blood to your heart against gravity; however, spider veins can also occur on your face, most often on the side of your nose.
MEDICAL EXPERTS RECOMMENDATIONS ON SPIDER VEINS & THEIR TREATMENT
WHAT CAUSES SPIDER VEINS?
The veins in your body have valves that act as one-way flaps. For various reasons, these valves become damaged, and as a result, they do not close correctly, allowing blood to leak back into the lower part of the vein rather than pushing it towards your heart. Over time, more blood starts to accumulate in the vein, building pressure that weakens the interior walls of your veins, causing it to become dilated or enlarged.
Several factors can predispose a person to develop spider veins:
- Genetic heredity
- Standing or sitting for extended periods of time, especially more than 4 hours a day
- Hormonal fluctuations due to puberty, pregnancy or menopause
- The use of birth control pills
- Postmenopausal hormone replacement
- A history of blood clots
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SCLEROTHERAPY?
Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure that helps improve the appearance of spider veins; additionally, it can improve related symptoms such as:
- Night Cramps
WHAT TO EXPECT?
How Fast Will I See Results?
Spider veins treated with sclerotherapy will show improvements right away, and you can expect to see definitive results within 3 to 6 weeks as the veins are reabsorbed by the surrounding tissue.
It is important to note, that veins that have been treated with sclerotherapy won’t return, however, there is no guarantee that new spider veins won’t appear near the treated area.
