Alone, they are not a health risk but often are a cosmetic concern. Spider veins are generally an inherited condition occurring when small capillaries dilate on the surface of the skin. There are larger veins called reticular or “feeder” veins that are the source for spider veins. Spider veins can worsen for a variety of reasons.
As we age, the majority of us will see our small veins increasingly dilate just underneath the skin’s surface. Women are more commonly affected than men. There are many contributing factors, such as familial history, weight fluctuations, prolonged sitting or standing, heavy lifting, hormonal changes and limited exercise.
What are the benefits of spider vein treatments?
For a lot of people these veins are unsightly and thus the removal of them is the sole concern as they’re not a health risk when found alone. A more even tone of the skin once they’re removed is the ultimate goal.
What Is A Vein Treatment Like?
To treat spider veins, we use state-of-the-art technology and a unique combination therapy. Our approach involves the use of sclerotherapy with hypertonic saline followed by a vascular laser. Sclerotherapy involves injection of a sclerosing agent into the blood vessels causing the walls to become swollen and inflamed. Right afterwards, Nd: YAG laser light is then used to heat the vessels.
By causing “double damage” – the sclerosing agent and direct heat to the vessel walls – they collapse and disappear. During your consultation, you will be given recommendations tailored to your specific condition which may include one or both of these treatments.
Pain associated with treatment is minimal. Sclerotherapy will involve a slight needle prick and mild burning while the laser will produce a little cold stinging sensation.
How Can I Expect To Look Immediately After Vein Treatments?
The area of the injections will likely be red and maybe have the appearance of an ant bite. The area where the laser is used could also produce some redness and slight swelling. All of this should subside in the couple of days following treatment.
How Many Vein Treatments Will I Need?
Two to three sessions are usually required to achieve the maximum outcome.
What Results Can I Expect To See After Vein Treatments?
Our distinctive treatment approach will improve your appearance and, like with many patients, your self-confidence. The veins will begin to appear lighter after each session. The appearance of the vessels will continue to improve for up to two months after treatment.
