An Easy Solution for Spider Veins
Spider veins can make you feel self-conscious about baring your skin.
Fortunately, there are many options available today to erase spider veins and restore younger-looking skin. Birmingham Varicosity Vein Center has a highly-targeted and minimally-invasive solution that might be the answer you’ve been looking for: sclerotherapy.
Erase Spider Veins With Injections
Sclerotherapy is an outpatient procedure that treats spider veins through the injection of a special solution that causes the damaged veins to shrink and close off blood flow in those areas. Your body does the rest of the work by redirecting the blood flow into healthy veins and absorbing these into the body like scar tissue.
Clearer, Younger-Looking Skin
Sclerotherapy can be used to treat any venous insufficiency, but it is generally better suited for smaller vessels like spider veins.
While many other treatments require some form of sedation or anesthesia, sclerotherapy does not. The procedure itself also tends to be quicker than other treatment options.
Ideal for Spider-Vein Sufferers
If you suffer from smaller veins causing cosmetic issues, sclerotherapy might be the solution for you. There are many different ways to treat venous insufficiencies, so consult your doctor about which treatment will best address your concerns.
Quick and Minimally-Invasive
The procedure usually requires no anesthetic and only takes 30 to 60 minutes on average. The doctor will administer a series of shots using a thin needle and then have you walk around a little bit afterward to prevent any blood clotting. After the procedure, patients go back to resuming their normal daily activities.
A Smooth Road to Better Skin
You will be able to return to most normal activities the day after your procedure. For up to two weeks, you should avoid heavy exercise and hot baths. You will wear compression socks to support your recovery and may also need to change any bandages applied to the treatment site.
Spider Veins Vanish
It can take about three weeks to heal from post-procedure bruising and up to six weeks for your body to heal completely. For most people, your spider veins will disappear. Some people require a second visit if the veins in the treated area are on the larger side. Follow your care plan before and after the procedure for the best possible results.
