If you have spider veins, it is likely that you want to get rid of them. You may have tried some over-the-counter or natural products, but you quickly realized that these just don’t work. You need treatment options that will actually remove the veins. Here are some spider veins treatment options.
Some people get varicose veins and spider veins confused. They are not the same thing. Varicose veins are usually larger and can lead to complications. Spider veins are unsightly but usually do not present any type of medical problem. When treating varicose veins, the goal is to reduce the risk of complications and the uncomfortable symptoms. When it comes to treating spider veins, the goal is to improve a person’s appearance.
Compression Therapy and Conservative Treatments
Conservative methods are sometimes used in order to treat vein issues and to prevent the vein issues from becoming worse. Compression stockings can be helpful when vein issues present uncomfortable symptoms. Other conservative treatments include losing weight, exercising regularly, and having good skin hygiene. Elevating the legs while sleeping or sitting down and avoiding standing or sitting for long periods of time can be helpful.
This spider veins treatment is a good option for efficiently removing spider veins. It involves injecting a special solution right into the offending veins. It causes the veins to collapse and eventually disappear. After the veins collapse, blood is routed through healthy veins. The body naturally gets rid of the veins that have been treated with the sclerotherapy solution.
This treatment can before performed right here in our office. It is typically performed in order to improve the appearance of the legs or other parts of the body where a person has unsightly veins.
Light and Laser Therapy
Pulsed light and lasers can be used in order to heat offending veins and cause them to shrink. This is one of the most effective treatments that is currently available when it comes to getting rid of spider veins.
High-intensity pulsed light is another option. It offers similar benefits to the spider veins treatment that is performed using pulsed light and lasers, but it is different because a different spectrum of light is used during the treatment. The goal is to shrink selected veins and then allow the body to remove them naturally over time.
