Spiders don’t have the greatest reputation among humans, and spider veins are just as notorious. When superficial blood vessels close to the surface of your skin become dilated, they quickly become visible as a web of blue and purple veins running across your legs. It’s incredibly common for women to suddenly notice spider veins as a result of pregnancy and aging, and though they aren’t harmful, they’re definitely an embarrassing nuisance. Luckily, a simple treatment called sclerotherapy can actually make spider veins disappear.
About Spider Veins
Spider veins can be easily recognized as the small red and purple blood vessels that twist and turn under the skin. Since they are situated so close to the skin’s surface, they are visible to the naked eye. Most spider veins appear on the legs, and some women are more impacted than others due to hormone fluctuations associated with pregnancy and menopause, participation in occupations that involve excessive standing, and heredity.
Easy Sclerotherapy Treatment Can Eliminate Spider Veins
Believe it or not, sclerotherapy has been in use for nearly 100 years, but has only recently gained attention for its effective cosmetic use. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a salt solution directly into unwanted spider veins. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessels in question. This causes them swell, clot, turn into scar tissue, and simply fade from sight under the skin. The body quickly adapts by rerouting blood through healthier veins located deeper under the skin, so your skin will look smooth and flawless once again.
Like many cosmetic procedures, sclerotherapy is most effective when completed in a series of three to six sessions. This allows the effects of the salt solution to accumulate under the skin. Wearing compression stockings after treatment will also help maintain pressure on the treated areas and remind blood to flow through healthier veins.
