Spider veins on your legs are so frustrating. They look like a blemish on your skin. You can’t cover them up with makeup. You can’t make them go away. You have that fine web of dark blue lines spreading out on the surface of your skin that just makes you want to cover them up. You have tried creams. You cut down on your salt. You started walking more often to try to improve your circulation. Nothing has made a difference. It’s time to get help from a professional. Sclerotherapy could be an effective solution for your spider veins.
How Can Sclerotherapy Treat Your Spider Veins?
Sclerotherapy is a popular approach for spider veins. It is a treatment that you can have in the comfort of our office. The specialist will begin by pinpointing your spider veins. An irritant will then be injected into the affected veins. The irritant makes the vein walls collapse. Once they collapse, your blood can’t travel through those veins anymore. The blood finds a new pathway. Meanwhile, your treated veins will eventually disappear as they are absorbed by your body. You may be given compression stockings to wear after your procedure. You’ll be advised to walk often to promote good circulation. You may be given recommendations for changes in your diet as well. You can’t make your spider veins go away on your own. However, sclerotherapy works. Once they have been treated, you may be able to avoid more spider veins in the future.
Why Do Spider Veins Happen?
Spider veins and varicose veins are a common problem. They occur when valves in your veins don’t work the way that they should. The valves are supposed to close after your blood makes its way through your veins to head to your heart. When you have spider veins, the valves in the affected veins don’t do their job. The blood goes backward. It collects in a pool and starts to become noticeable. The end result is visible veins at the surface of your skin. Sclerotherapy can help you to eliminate the problem.
