Are spider veins compromising the appearance of your skin? While these small, visible blood vessels rarely pose a risk to your health, they may impact your self-confidence, especially in revealing clothing. That’s why we offer sclerotherapy to safely and effectively remove spider veins with a few simple injections.
About Spider Veins
Spider veins may look like a true spider shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a central point; they may resemble tiny branch-like shapes; or they may appear in straight lines. They don’t serve a physiological purpose but rather are a reaction to pressure building in the deeper veins. Stretching veins combined with thinning skin make them visible on the surface.
Is It Worth It to Treat Spider Veins?
Spider veins can safely be collapsed or removed without affecting the flow of blood to appendages. Since it’s easy for patients to treat these veins with very low risk, it’s often worth it to achieve greater self-confidence. Simply collapsing the small vein is sufficient for results to appear after a few weeks, without the need for radiofrequency energy or other types of laser energy.
What is The Best Way to Remove Spider Veins?
Sclerotherapy is widely considered the best way to remove spider veins. A solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins, causing them to collapse. Sclerosing agents that are mild enough to use in small veins have made sclerotherapy predictable and quite painless.
Do Spider Veins Come Back After Removal?
After each sclerotherapy session, the veins may appear to be worse until they begin to fade. Additionally, the procedure only treats those veins that are currently visible; it does nothing to prevent new veins from surfacing in the future. So, before you decide to have sclerotherapy treatment, it is important to discuss your expectations with Dr. Dima Ali.
