What are spider veins?
Medically speaking, spider veins are called telangiectasia, the tiny red, blue, or purple vessels that are right underneath the skin’s surface.
Many factors can contribute to the appearance of spider veins. Among them are genetics, sun exposure, hormonal changes, obesity, smoking, or being sedentary. Veins may also become more visible on the legs of people who remain sitting or standing for long periods.
What are treatment options for spider veins?
The good news is that there are advanced non-invasive treatment options that can drastically diminish the appearance of spider veins. Sclerotherapy is the most common, and it has been used for several decades. Sclerotherapy is a relatively painless procedure that requires no down time and has a long history of achieving positive results in just a few sessions.
How does sclerotherapy work?
With sclerotherapy, a sclerosing medication is injected into the affected veins. This medication causes the vein to collapse and blood flow is then redirected safely into healthy veins. Sclerotherapy injections are quick, requiring just a few minutes. Most patients will see results within a few short weeks of the session. For optimal results, two to four sessions may be necessary.
