What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are tiny vessels just below the surface of your skin that have become engorged with blood. These vessels have small flaps that should open and close to help blood return to your heart from the lower extremities. Spider veins also occur on the face in persons who have rosacea. The condition does not cause any symptoms and does not require treatment from a clinical perspective, but many people do not like how spider veins look and opt to have them treated with sclerotherapy.
Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment
Spider vein treatment is a way to destroy the damaged veins. After the vein is broken down by your body, you feel more confident and at ease with the way that the treatment area looks. It is a treatment that enhances appearance and your confidence, and many of our patients feel more confident wearing shorts and bathing suits.
What Can I Expect from Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins are treated with sclerotherapy. A small needle is used to inject a solution into the damaged veins that causes the walls to stick together. This makes the vessel incapable of managing blood flow. Your body routes blood through other healthier veins and slowly absorbs the treated vessel.
Am I a Good Candidate for Spider Vein Treatment?
If you have tiny web-like networks of veins that are visible from the surface of your skin, you may be a good candidate for spider vein treatment. These damaged veins typically develop around the ankles, calves, and other parts of the lower leg and foot but may also develop elsewhere, such as on the face. If you have veins such as these, you may be a good candidate for spider vein treatment.
