What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are smaller and less severe than varicose veins. They are smaller, twisted blood vessels that have become visible through the skin. Turning purple, red, or more commonly, blue and they mostly appear on the legs or face.
Spider veins do not generally lead to serious health problems because they are superficial and therefore procedures that address them are considered cosmetic.
Who gets Spider Veins?
Spider veins can be caused by numerous issues that we face in our everyday lives.
- Increasing age or hormonal changes that can occur during puberty
- pregnancy, or menopause can increase the risk of spider veins.
- Taking birth control pills and any other medication that contains estrogen or progesterone also increases the risk of not only spider veins but also varicose veins.
- Occupations that require you to stand for a prolonged period can also increase the risk of spider veins.
What is Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that is non-invasive and convenient and also simple yet effective. An FDA approved medication is injected into the veins with a tiny needle, which irritates the lining of the vein. This creates a response that can close the vein, and cause it to be reabsorbed by the body. The blood from the closed vein may be then rerouted to a vein that is working properly, therefore restoring correct circulation.
