If you are considering cosmetic treatments for spider veins, you will want to know whether you are a good candidate before undergoing treatment. Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive treatment that can either diminish the appearance of veins or eliminate them altogether. Here are three quick ways to know if spider veins treatment is right for you.
Those with Narrow Visible Veins
Spider veins are sometimes called telangiectasias and are tiny veins that are so close to the surface of the skin that they become very visible. They typically look like tiny blue or purple circles, and they may become darker over time. These veins are usually fed by one major problematic vein. By treating this main vein, you can often see relief from all of the visible veins in the area. You can experience permanent results with spider veins treatment and will never see these same veins reappear.
Those Looking for a Minimally-Invasive Treatment
You may also be a candidate for spider veins treatment if you are willing to undergo a minimally-invasive treatment. The gold standard of treatments is sclerotherapy. Our team will ensure that you can remain comfortable throughout your treatment time. We will inject the main vein with a strong saline solution that will cause the vein to close down, shutting off the blood supply through it. Once it has collapsed, this vein will slowly be reabsorbed by your body and fade from the surface of your skin.
Those Wanting to Feel Better About Their Looks
Because spider veins do not create physical issues as varicose veins do, the main reason that you will want to seek treatment for them is to stop the embarrassment that you may be feeling about them. After a full set of treatments, you can once again proudly show off your skin. We offer spider veins treatment through sclerotherapy for your legs or hands.
