If you are bothered by spider veins on your legs and are ready to say goodbye to those veins, talk to us about sclerotherapy treatment and laser therapy for spider veins. Spider veins can form for a number of reasons, including hormone fluctuations, weight gain, and pregnancy. Some people develop spider veins because they work at a job that requires sitting or standing for long hours while others develop spider veins simply because of genetics. Whatever the case may be for you, we can put together a treatment plan that will erase those spider veins.
Treating Spider Veins with Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy continues to be a popular method for treating spider veins because it is so simple and effective. The procedure involves injecting medication into the problem vein, which causes the vein walls to collapse. Blood flow through this vein stops and is redirected to other veins. The injection treatment only takes about 30 minutes and any discomfort passes within a few minutes. You may be required to wear special socks that promote circulation and avoid vigorous physical activities for a few weeks as the tissue heals.
Treating Spider Veins with Laser Therapy
Surface laser treatments are another option for treating patients with spider veins and involves passing a laser that emits strong bursts of light into the skin. The light energy heats up the vein and causes the vein walls to collapse and dissolve over time. It is a very precise treatment and can effectively target the veins without leaving damaging surrounding tissues. This treatment also takes about 30 minutes and you may need to undergo a series of treatments to achieve full results.
We will need to review your medical history and learn about any medications you are taking before you undergo spider vein treatment with sclerotherapy or laser therapy at our office. Some patients get results after a single treatment, while others will need to undergo a series of treatments to get the full results they need. Your series of treatments will typically be spaced a few weeks apart to ensure the tissues are healing properly.
You can finally say goodbye to those spider veins with a targeted treatment. Schedule your spider vein treatment consultation today!
