Sclerotherapy® (Vein Therapy)
Finally, there is a safe way to get rid of those small yet unsightly clusters of pink and purple thread like veins that lie near the surface of the skin in the legs, called “spider veins”.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins –known in the medical world as telangiectasia, thread veins or sunburst varicosities-with their thin spider shape- are often seen on thighs, calves, ankles, and knees, but they can also appear in the face and other parts of the body They are connected to the larger venous system; however, they are not an essential part of the system.
How Does Sclerotherapy Work?
The Sclero treatment is accomplished by injecting the veins with a specially formulated saline solution that diverts blood flow. The treated veins then collapse. Over time, the veins that are treated are gradually reabsorbed by the body and gently fade away.
What to Expect?
More than one treatment is usually required to achieve optimal results. A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins. These include heredity, events that cause hormonal shifts such as weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing and the use of certain medications
While spider veins aren’t nearly as common in men as they are in women, sclerotherapy works just as well for them!
