Spider veins are the thin, red or blue blood vessels that can be seen twisting and winding through the surface of the skin. These can be caused by a number of factors, such as genetics, obesity, past pregnancies or sitting or standing too much. Whatever the cause, they are unsightly and can damage your self-confidence. Luckily though, you don’t have to put up with them any longer. There are several treatments available to help get rid of spider veins and give you back beautiful, sexy legs.*
The most common treatment used to treat spider veins is Sclerotherapy. This treatment involves injecting a saline solution into the veins, which damages the inner lining of the vein, causing a blockage which will eventually cause the vein to close off and fade from view. This treatment involves little to no discomfort and requires no downtime. You should be able to see results within a couple of weeks.*
Another treatment option for spider veins is laser treatment. This treatment uses a laser to heat up the targeted veins and cause them to shrink and fade from view. This treatment option often requires more than one session to achieve the best results. You may feel some warmth on the treatment area, but this shouldn’t last long. Results should be visible within a few weeks.*
Both of these treatment options will require you to wear compression stockings for some time after treatment. Your doctor can discuss exactly how long you need to wear these compression stockings, as well as other post-treatment care tips, when you go in for a consultation before your treatment.*
