Spider Veins are unsightly small clusters of colorful veins that often appear on the legs. Many women feel very self-conscious of their spider veins, particularly in warmer seasons when shorts and swimsuits call for naked legs. Spider vein removal is most often achieved through the use of a solution that is injected into the vein which causes it to collapse and fade from sight. This solution treatment is called sclerotherapy. If there are multiple spider veins, multiple injections will be required to treat each one.
Following the procedure, some bruising can occur and patients may wear compression stockings or an ace bandage while it heals. If you are interested in learning more about spider vein treatment, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
