What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are recognizable by their characteristic web-like appearance. They are small web-like veins that appear blue or purple beneath the surface of skin. Normal, healthy veins contain valves that allow blood to flow through the vein and back up to the heart. When a valve becomes damaged or weak, it prevents the blood from properly flowing throughout the vein. This results in the blood pooling in the vein, unable to flow back up to the heart. Spider veins can be caused by obesity, heredity, age, hormone changes, exposure to sun, and injuries. These dysfunctional veins are typically more of a cosmetic concern, but if left untreated they can cause uncomfortable symptoms.
Common symptoms that patients with spider veins may experience include:
- Burning sensation
- Discomfort sitting or standing for extended periods of time
If left untreated, these symptoms can worsen, and the veins can become varicose veins which are even more threatening to your health.
One of the most effective and popular treatment options for spider veins is a procedure known as sclerotherapy. Treatment involves injecting a specialized solution into the problematic veins. The process causes the vein walls to become irritated and collapse. The blood then flows through healthy, surrounding veins.
Sclerotherapy doesn’t require the use of anesthesia or downtime following treatments. Our doctor will determine the number of treatment sessions based on your condition. Once the treatment is complete and takes effect, your skin will clear up for an improved complexion.
During an initial consultation, a vein analysis will be performed to determine if you are a proper candidate for treatment. If sclerotherapy is the right choice for you, a personalized plan for treatment will be created that is tailored to you and your specific needs.
