You don’t know when it happened, but you have blue webs running across your legs. Spider veins are popping up. You know that you will have a full-blown case of varicose veins if you don’t do something about it. Spider veins might be a nuisance, but you can get rid of them with a relatively simple procedure known as sclerotherapy. This spider vein treatment can help you to stop being self-conscious about your legs once again.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
Sclerotherapy is a common procedure that is used to treat spider veins and varicose veins. When you have these vein problems, valves in the veins are not doing their job. They are supposed to close after the blood passes through on the way to the heart. When you have faulty valves, they fail to close. Blood can pool in the vein as a result. In the beginning, you may only have spider veins. Over time, they will become more pronounced. To eliminate the problem, sclerotherapy is effective. A special solution will be injected into your spider vein to cause the vein to collapse and seal. In the end, blood can no longer pass through the treated vein. Your body is amazing and will compensate for the treatment, sending blood through another vein. Your treated vein will eventually fade from sight as the vein is replaced by healthy tissues.
Why Choose Sclerotherapy for Spider Vein Treatment?
Sclerotherapy is a minor procedure that can be performed in the comfort of our office. While the results are not immediate, it is a simple way to find a solution for your spider veins. You can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your problem veins are going to be a thing of the past. Another advantage of having sclerotherapy is stopping the progression of your spider veins before they turn into something worse. Once you have had your spider vein treatment, you can help yourself to avoid more problems with your veins in the future. Getting plenty of exercise, especially physical activity that will strengthen your legs, will also benefit your veins. Healthier circulation means less of a chance that you will have more issues with varicose veins or spider veins. Reducing the amount of salt in your diet and wearing compression stockings can also keep your legs in tip-top shape.
