Can you remember the last time you wore shorts instead of pants? Do you feel like the appearance of your legs has prevented you from making carefree fashion choices? If your confidence in your legs has decreased, it may be time to consider pursuing professional spider vein treatment.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are those problematic veins that cause you to dislike the look of your legs and ankles. They can pop up due to genetics, past injuries to your legs or even personal issues related to how much time you spend on your feet or sitting down every day.
Spider veins occur in the tiniest veins that are closest to the skin. They typically create nothing more than cosmetic issues, such as the purple or red weblike appearance of veins on the surface of your legs. However, because they indicate underlying problems, they may show up over time as larger problems, such as aches, cramping, restlessness, swelling and skin ulcers in the leg, if not addressed.
What are My Options for Spider Vein Treatment?
At our practice, we help both men and women get rid of their spider veins permanently so that they no longer have to deal with embarrassment from them. Our specialists can help you decide which spider vein treatment is best for you and your goals.
One common treatment for spider veins that we offer is called Asclera® sclerotherapy. This treatment is a safe and effective non-surgical approach to eliminating spider veins. Asclera® sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive injectable treatment that damages the cells that cause blood to clot.
Another common type of spider vein treatment we offer is laser therapy. Laser therapy is also non-surgical and minimally-invasive. It utilizes lower energy lasers to gently apply mild heat to the veins, causing them to collapse.
Both spider vein treatment options we offer are outpatient procedures performed in the comfort of our office. To achieve your goals, you may require follow-up procedures, but our specialists will work with you to develop the treatment plan that is right for you.
