Many women have changed their lifestyle completely because they have spider veins. At one time, they were active outdoors throughout the spring, summer and fall. They were happy to wear swimsuits and shorts because their legs were shapely and attractive. However, the appearance of spider veins made them feel self-conscientious about their appearance. Many individuals wonder if there is anything they can do about them. Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment that can help you say goodbye to your spider veins.
The vast majority of individuals who have spider veins have them as a result of estrogen and pregnancy. The hormone levels in a woman’s body can determine if these veins appear. It is common for women to begin noticing small patches of spider veins after they turn 30. They usually appear in a circular fashion and are a light purple color.
Sclerotherapy is a relatively non-invasive treatment that can help get rid of spider veins. During the procedure, a special solution is injected into the veins. This solution is designed to cause the veins to collapse. As a result, blood is routed through other healthy veins in the body. Over the next couple of weeks, or sometimes months, the spider veins will begin to disappear, and then they are absorbed into the body.
Individuals who are dealing with small varicose veins can also use sclerotherapy as a treatment to get rid of them. However, this treatment is not appropriate for deep, thick varicose veins.
It is likely that our medical professionals will recommend that you wear compression hose for the first couple of weeks after treatment. Some individuals only need one or two treatments to get rid of their spider veins. Other individuals may need up to four treatments. This will all be discussed during a consultation at our office.
