With shorts and swimsuit season right around the corner, now is a great time to address those spider veins you’re always trying to cover up. If you’re tired of hiding your legs in pants, jeans, or long dresses, talk to us about innovative vein treatments that will get rid of spider veins for good. We can treat smaller veins with a simple injection treatment known as Sclerotherapy vein treatment. Look forward to showing off beautiful legs this spring and summer with one of our innovative vein procedures.
Sclerotherapy to Treat Spider Veins
Spider veins can form just about anywhere, but are most noticeable on the legs, face, hands, and chest. These are thinner visible veins with a dark red or blue hue, and can be more pronounced on people with a light or fair skin tone. Spider veins are one of the side effects of aging, but can also develop in some people who are taking birth control pills or in those who are obese.
We can remove unwanted spider veins by injecting a saline solution directly into the vein ( Sclerotherapy). This solution displaces blood inside the vein and causes it to collapse. The damaged tissue is then absorbed by the body and the vein simply disappears. Some patients need a series of injections to achieve optimal results.
After your Sclerotherapy procedure, you will be able to return to your normal routine almost immediately. You should feel well enough to walk immediately after your procedure, but may need to wear compression stockings for a few days or weeks to ensure proper healing. Depending on the vein being treated, it may take roughly 2-3 sessions to completely fade. Each session should be about a month apart to gradually eliminate your problem spider vein.
If you want to have beautiful legs come spring, let us put together a treatment plan that will address those stubborn spider veins. Schedule your vein treatment consultation at Renaissance Plastic Surgery today.
