Chances are that you were able to glance down at your legs throughout your twenties and perhaps even your thirties to see beautiful, flawless skin. However, if you’re like most women, you now have a number of unwanted and unsightly spider veins making their marks on your upper and lower legs. Rather than hiding your legs in pants the rest of the summer, you can receive a simple series of sclerotherapy treatments to force those spider veins to disappear.
All About Spider Veins
Spider veins are harmless yet unattractive 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.
Use Sclerotherapy to Banish Spider Veins For Good
If you don’t like the appearance of spider veins on your legs, you definitely aren’t alone! This is why sclerotherapy is widely used to make spider veins disappear. Sclerotherapy is a simple treatment that involves injecting a salt solution directly into unwanted veins. The solution quickly irritates the lining of the blood vessel. Over the span of a few weeks, the salt solution causes the blood vessel to swell, clot, turn into scar tissue, and fade from sight. Blood is then rerouted through healthier veins deeper down away from the skin’s surface, and your skin once again looks flawless!
