Spider and varicose veins appear mostly on your legs because the veins on the bottom of your body have a tough job carrying blood back to your heart, leading to their weakening and overwork. What’s more, gravity and many hours of sitting or standing, can exacerbate the look of varicose and spider veins, making them both uncomfortable and unsightly.
Spider Vs Varicose Veins
Spider veins are tree branch or spider web-like red and dark purple vessels that are visible on your skin. Varicose veins are blue or dark purple in color. In contrast to spider veins, varicose are enlarged and protruding. They can appear as lumpy or bulging on the surface of the skin.
Spider veins are slightly uncomfortable and unpleasant to look at, but varicose veins might be more painful, causing itching and throbbing and even lead to more serious health issues.
Get rid of spider and varicose veins
Sclerotherapy is a popular, minimally invasive vein care restoration treatment. It can improve considerably the appearance of varicose and spider veins on your legs. There’s no reason to hide behind unflattering leg-covering clothes when you can show off smooth, even-tone legs.
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure used in the treatment of spider veins for almost 75 years. It’s an easy, risk-free treatment that makes visible veins shrivel up or completely disappear in a matter of weeks.
During schelotherapy a sclerosant-based solution is injected onto the problematic vein with a fine needle. This irritant solution causes the affected vein to shut, allowing the blood to use healthier veins to travel through. The collapsed vein is gradually absorbed by the local body tissue.
The fading process might take up to a few weeks, depending on the solution used and the type and severity of your veins.
You should know that sclerotherapy’s efficiency depends on a number of factors, including the type or condition of your veins, any health problems, age, heredity and so on.
Improvement is gradual and it might take up to a month for the full results to show. The treatment lasts under one hour and no anesthesia is required. You can resume your daily schedule by the end of your cosmetic vein restoration treatment.
Rivaderm’s dermatologists will suggest the best course of action for your case and can even recommend alternative or complementary treatment approaches for maximum results. While in some cases, a one-time schlerotherapy treatment suffices, in various occasions, 2 to 3 visits might be necessary.
