Spider veins are those groups of small blue, red, or purple blood vessels that occur close to the skin’s surface. They often resemble a spider’s web and although they can develop anywhere on the body, they commonly appear on the face or legs.
Although these veins may or may not cause discomfort, many people are unhappy about the way their spider veins look. Fortunately, there are safe and effective non-surgical spider vein treatments available today, and of these, the very best treatment for spider veins is considered to be sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that can provide relief from tired, aching, cramping, or restless legs while minimizing the unsightly appearance of spider veins. During this spider vein treatment, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time. This gentle, yet effective medication causes the vein to collapse and close. Over time, the closed vein gets absorbed by the body and disappears.
These sessions are typically completed in the office, within 20 minutes per leg. Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless.
With this modern therapy, there is generally no recovery period, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
