Do you have finely interwoven lines on your face or legs that remind you of a spider web? If so, you likely have spider veins. They do not only appear on the face. They are common on the legs and chest as well. Needless to say, these veins are often unwanted. As a result, you may be looking for a way to say goodbye to them. Sclerotherapy can be your treatment of choice when you want a method with a proven track record.
Spider veins form in the capillaries, or smaller blood vessels, as a result of venous insufficiency. This is a condition by which the blood does not flow through the vessels as it should. Instead, it begins to pool in the veins and causes them to become broken or enlarged. When spider veins become visible through your skin, they usually appear blue, red or purple. Because they often appear in groups, they are more conspicuous, making you even more determined to get rid of them.
Sclerotherapy is both safe and effective. As an added bonus, it does not require a visit to the hospital. Instead, it can be performed right here in our office, after which you can return home and go about your normal duties.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the affected veins. This solution will then irritate the walls of the vessels, which makes the veins close off and collapse. They then simply become tissue that the body soon absorbs. In a few weeks, nothing will remain of the unwanted veins, and you won’t have to worry about them anymore.
One thing that makes sclerotherapy so popular is the ease with which it can be administered. This benefits you in many ways. The treatment typically takes just 15-45 minutes to complete, and you will be able to go home as soon as it’s finished.
Sclerotherapy has been in use since the 1930s. Therefore, if you want a method that has been time-tested and proven, you won’t find one that has been around longer. The fact that it is still popular after all this time should give you confidence when it comes to choosing an effective vein removal treatment.
