Understanding Spider Veins
Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are small, damaged veins that appear close to the skin’s surface, resembling a spider’s web. These veins, usually red or blue, can occur not only on the legs but also on the face and other body parts. While they pose no significant health risk, many find them visually unappealing. Spider veins result from weak vascular walls and inefficient circulation, leading to their distinctive appearance.
Effective Solutions: Sclerotherapy and EVLT
For spider veins and smaller varicose veins, sclerotherapy is the preferred treatment. This minimally invasive procedure involves injecting a sclerosant into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time. The process redirects blood flow to healthier veins, improving both the appearance and discomfort associated with spider veins.
After sterilizing the treatment area, a sclerosant is carefully injected into the veins. The procedure is relatively quick, taking about 15 to 30 minutes, with most patients experiencing minimal discomfort without the need for anesthesia.
Following the injections, a bandage is applied, and compression garments are recommended to support the healing process.
Sclerotherapy offers a safe, nearly pain-free option for spider vein removal when performed by skilled professionals. The number of treatments needed varies depending on the individual case, with sessions spaced at least four weeks apart to evaluate progress and determine if additional treatments are necessary.
Who Is Eligible for Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is suitable for almost everyone looking to improve the appearance of spider veins, except for those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have uncontrolled diabetes, a history of deep vein thrombosis, or are on certain medications like anticoagulants or corticosteroids. Our clinic now safely offers sclerotherapy for various areas, including hands, arms, and face.
