Are you bothered by the appearance of spider veins on your legs or other parts of your body? This condition can lead to many issues, such as discomfort and a lack of self-confidence. Although certain methods can improve the condition, it does not get to the root of its cause. You should set up an appointment with us if you are looking for an effective solution. Laser vein removal may work for you!
Your veins are responsible for moving their supply of blood back to your heart and have one-way valves, preventing blood from flowing backward. Sometimes, these valves can become damaged, and blood returns back into the vein, making it more noticeable. Spider veins usually appear in clusters and resemble the legs or web of a spider.
If you are dealing with spider veins, the condition can be treated using laser vein removal and/or a treatment called sclerotherapy. It all depends on the unique situation, and the right treatment for you will ultimately be determined during a consultation.
A sclerotherapy treatment involves the injection of a solution right into the problem vein. This causes scarring in the vein, which forces blood through other routes. The vein collapses and your body reabsorbs it gradually. At this point, it will not be visible through the surface of the skin.
Laser vein removal is another treatment option if you are dealing with problem veins. Its goal is the delivery of sufficient thermal energy to scar the wall of the vein and force its closure.
Both of these treatment options have the advantage of not requiring surgical incisions. Even minor surgery entails certain risks like blood clots or infection. The treatments are very safe, fast to perform, and have a quick recovery time.
