How to Treat Spider Veins
Are you embarrassed to show off your legs because of unsightly spider veins? If so, you’re not alone. Over half of American women have spider or varicose veins as a result of aging, genetics and pregnancy. But, don’t despair–help is available in the form of an effective, non-invasive procedure that will have you donning your favorite pair of shorts in no time.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Developed in the 1930s, Sclerotherapy is a safe and clinically proven procedure for eliminating spider and varicose veins. These veins are not only unpleasant in appearance, but can also cause painful symptoms such as aching, swelling and night cramps. The procedure is a quick outpatient treatment that involves the injection of a sterile solution into the vein using a small, fine needle. The solution causes the vein to harden and fade away, usually within a few weeks.
What Can I Expect?
Sclerotherapy is considered the treatment of choice for spider and varicose veins because it is quick, easy and virtually painless. Most people return to their normal activities that same day. In the weeks that follow the procedure, patients can expect to see fading of the vein and relief of any painful symptoms.
