Spider Veins

Imagine Living Without Your Unappealing Spider Veins

Small, colored blood vessels that are visible through the skin, spider veins get their name due to their tendency to twist around like a spider web. While generally not painful, most people find them visually unappealing and can’t wait to get rid of them. Fortunately, our leading-edge treatment is highly effective at eliminating most spider veins, which helps to restore the natural aesthetic of your skin and return you to a life of confidence.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are usually a manifestation of a condition called venous insufficiency. Every vein in the body contains tiny valves that only allow blood to flow toward the heart. If your valves stop functioning properly, blood can flow in the wrong direction and pool within a vein, causing the vein to swell and stop working correctly. When small blood vessels become insufficient, they often turn into spider veins.


There are a number of reasons that veins can become insufficient, including:


Heredity

Female gender

Obesity

Lack of activity

Hormonal changes involved with pregnancy, puberty and menopause

History of blood clots

Use of birth control pills

Prolonged sitting or standing


Along with venous insufficiency, injuries, hormonal changes and sun exposure can also cause spider veins.

Sclerotherapy: Your Advanced, Effective Solution To Unsightly Spider Veins

The best treatment for spider veins is sclerotherapy. Using a fine needle, a solution (called a sclerosant) is injected into the spider veins to damage the lining. Your body will naturally reroute the blood to other veins and shut down the vein treated by sclerotherapy. The disabled spider vein will then be naturally reabsorbed.


This procedure is minimally invasive and done on an outpatient basis, you’ll be back to your life in about an hour. Many people even have their sclerotherapy done on their lunch breaks! Your ticket to a life without or with fewer ugly spider veins is easily accessible, so there’s no reason to postpone treatment.

Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Help Prevent Spider Veins

Because spider veins are more likely to develop in sedentary and obese individuals, it’s important to keep an active lifestyle and pay attention to your dietary choices. Not only will your overall health improve, but your incidence of spider veins will likely decrease.
