Spa Kansas City spider veinsSummer and warmer weather is lurking right around the corner, bringing with it flirty spring fashion, skirts, bathing suits and shorts! Most women look forward to spring and summer with eager anticipation, but for those ladies with unsightly spider veins on their legs, putting on a sundress is the last thing they want to do.

So what can women do about their spider veins other than hide their figure in pants all year long? At Midwest Medical, we currently offer sclerotherapy for our patients with spider veins and reticular veins. Spider veins can form due to genetic predisposition and pressure resulting from pregnancy, obesity, or long periods of sitting or standing.

The best and only way remove and reduce spider veins is professional sclerotherapy.

Sclerotherapy (pronounced sk-lair- o-therapy) is one of the most common, safe, and effective methods for treating unwanted, abnormal veins on the legs. The treatment involves the injection of a small amount of a solution into the leg veins.

Every patient is different, but several dozen injections are usually needed for each leg. Once injected, these solutions (a salt water solution, a detergent, or glycerin) mildly irritate the inside of the vessel.

After injections are completed, compression dressings and stockings are applied. Over the next several weeks, the small veins will collapse and usually leave no marks. Each sclerotherapy session is approximately 30 minutes, allowing for injections as well as dressing application.

The side effects of Sclerotherapy are mild and temporary, generally limited to short-time swelling, redness, and bruising (which is quite rare).  Although sclerotherapy generally does not require any recovery time, it is advisable to avoid activities that may lead to dilation of veins and blood stagnation, such as heavy lifting, strenuous exercise or hot baths.

You are encouraged to walk to speed up the circulation in the legs and enhance the safety of the procedure.  Why worry about spider veins when the solution is quick and easy so you Look Your Best this summer.
