Have you started to notice thin, broken veins just below the surface of the skin on your knees and ankles? These broken blood vessels are normally red, blue or purple in appearance. They are common around the stress points in your legs and also can appear on the face. Spider veins are not medically concerning but can be troubling to both male and female patients alike.
Spider veins often appear due to stress on the body such as standing all day for work, pregnancy or other significant weight gain. Spider veins can also appear due to genetics.
Sclerotherapy is a painless, simple procedure used to treat and eliminate the appearance of spider veins. During the procedure, a tiny needle is used to inject a saline substance into the vein causing it to die and disappear from view. Sclerotherapy is pain-free, despite its use of needles and you should expect to see results after just one treatment.
