Unwanted veins can have a devastating impact on a person’s lifestyle. They can negatively impact the appearance, which often hurts the self-esteem. They can also cause physical symptoms that can make day-to-day living uncomfortable, in many cases. Fortunately, if you have any of these unwanted veins, we have various vein treatments available at our office.
One of the most common conditions that leads to the formation of unwanted vessels is spider veins. Not only are these veins considered to be unattractive, but they can also cause some unpleasant symptoms in certain cases, such as itching and burning. As such, many people seek vein treatments to have them removed.
A number of treatments are available for the removal of spider veins. Sclerotherapy is the oldest of the treatment methods in use to get rid of these veins. During this procedure, a special solution is injected into the vessels that are targeted for removal. The solution will cause the blood inside to thicken. It will also cause the walls of the vessel to collapse. When this happens, the vessel is closed off and is safely destroyed. It will go away as the body naturally absorbs the tissue that is left of the vein.
Laser treatments are also popular for the removal of unwanted spider veins. When they are conducted, the heat that is produced as the vessels absorb the laser energy destroys the veins. When this happens, the blood flow will be re-routed by the body through other healthier veins.
Spider veins impact the capillaries and can occur on the face as well as the legs. People frequently want them removed in order to improve the appearance. Spider veins look like fine, interwoven lines that can form a pattern similar to that of a spider web.
