Let’s be real: Nobody likes spider veins! Most of these veins are harmless, while others can cause aching, burning, and itching sensations.
But thankfully, you have options for spider veins removal! Our physicians specialize in a fast, safe, and effective spider vein removal option: Sclerotherapy. It’s your non-surgical ticket to regaining confidence in your legs.
Pesky spider veins make many women shy away from showing their legs. They’re embarrassed and frustrated by these tiny villains, which resemble spider webs or gnarly tree branches. So what can you do to get rid of spider veins on your legs?
Spider vein removal through sclerotherapy is safe and effective. Sclerotherapy works by delicately injecting a specialized medication through a tiny needle into the affected vessels (a.k.a. telangiectasias). This solution triggers the damaged vessel to scar down, and your body gradually absorbs the veins. Within a few weeks, you’ll be saying hello to smoother, vein-free legs.
Patients may feel a slight pinching sensation as the needle enters the skin, but this lasts only a few moments with each injection.
After treatment, patients are advised to wear medium compression support hose for three days, take walks, and stay active to ensure the best results. Your clinician might advise you to avoid strenuous activity on the first day following sclerotherapy. No other changes to your schedule are required.
Sclerotherapy injections have minimal complications, including a bit of bruising and swelling, raised red areas, and possibly a fleeting skin darkening at the injection sites. Less common side effects of sclerotherapy include inflammation or blood clots, in which case, patients should call their treating physician immediately.
Around 50% of women deal with spider veins. Spider vein causes can include hormones, childbirth, and the number of candles on your birthday cake. Other risk factors include family history, hormonal birth control, smoking, and obesity. Jobs that demand standing or sitting for hours on end can also be spider vein causes.
