Spider veins – also known as telangiectasias – not only tend to compromise aesthetics but can also cause discomfort and throbbing, especially if they’re located on the legs. These twisting and turning veins are close to the skin surface and often appear purple or blue. If you’re suffering from spider veins and are self-conscious about your appearance, there are treatments available. Here at Elite Vein & Hair Restoration, our skin care specialists will be happy to discuss your treatment options with you.
You may already have taken steps to ease the discomfort associated with spider veins. Perhaps you’re wearing compression stockings and using a pain reliever medication. However, you can get rid of those unwelcome spider veins once and for all.
What Causes Spider Veins?
These veins are thought to exist because of a combination of hereditary factors and lifestyle. Those who stand on their feet (or sit!) all day because of their job requirements are more likely to develop these twisted veins.
This is far and away the most commonly performed procedure for near-surface vein treatment. A saline solution is carefully injected into the vein. This results in irritation of the vein wall tissue. The vein constricts over time and gets gradually absorbed by the body. This procedure is commonly performed with ablation.
Am I a Candidate for Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy?
Anyone looking to rid themselves of spider veins that may be causing them discomfort or self-consciousness may be a good candidate for this procedure. Idea candidates will also harbor realistic expectations about this treatment and what it can accomplish. For the ultimate results, some of our patients undergo a combination of ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, endovenous ablation, and phlebectomy.
