Eliminate Spider Veins with Sclerotherapy

As you’ve grown older have you started to notice, small, broken looking veins below the surface of your skin? These veins, also known as spider veins, most commonly appear on stress points of the legs including the thighs, knees, and ankles. Additionally, spider veins can appear on your face, which is often concerning to patients.

Spider veins occur when the body takes on new levels of stress such as weight gain, pregnancy or even a new job that requires many hours of standing. The good news about spider veins is that they do not pose any significant health risks for threats to your circulation. However, their broken, blue, purple or red appearance can often make patients self-conscious about the condition of their legs and cause them to seek professional repair.

Sclerotherapy can be used to treat and virtually eliminate any unsightly spider veins from your skin’s surface. Dr. Sardo will use a tiny needle to inject a saline-like substance into the effected vein, causing it to “die” and soon be absorbed into your surrounding, healthy leg tissues. Sclerotherapy is pain-free, despite it’s use of needles and you should expect to see results after just one treatment. For stubborn spider veins and lighter skin tones you should expect to require additional treatment for optional results.

Don’t let your spider veins make you self-conscious or cause you to hide your legs from the world. Talk to Dr. Marilyn Sardo at the Center for Beauty about sclerotherapy treatment today.
