Spider Vein Treatment for Summer Ready Legs

As you’ve started to unveil your legs for summer, have you noticed small broken looking veins just below the surface of your skin?

If you have, these are called spider veins. Luckily, spider veins pose no significant health risk. However, their broken, red or purplish appearance are often off-putting to patients. This is especially true before the summer season.

If you are getting ready for vacation, time at the pool or just summer evenings in shorts and skirts – consider eliminating your spider veins for good with sclerotherapy.

Spider veins commonly increase in visibility with age or as a result of:

  • Heredity
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal shifts
  • Weight gain
  • Occupations or activities that require prolonged standing

Spider vein treatment can rejuvenate your legs, making the skin appear younger and more evenly toned. During treatment, Dr. Sardo will inject a special solution called Aesclera directly into the vein via a tiny needle. This irritates the lining of the vein and causes it to close. Over the next three to six weeks, the vein will gradually disappear. 
The procedure typically takes less than an hour depending on the severity of your case and is performed in the office.
