Spider veins are the thin purple, blue, or red veins that have the appearance of a spider web, and are typically found on the legs or face. They may develop for many reasons including genetics, pregnancy, or lifestyle, or they may be a symptom of an underlying health issue that shouldn’t be ignored.
One of the significant causes of spider veins is poor circulation. Blood can pool in the legs due to weakened valves in the veins. This can cause the veins to enlarge rather than the blood returning properly to the heart and lungs, and as time goes by, the walls of the veins can weaken.
However, due to the fact that many people incorrectly believe that spider veins are a cosmetic issue, they may be ignored. Yet, many people experience pain or discomfort, in addition to suffering with the unappealing appearance of spider veins.
Nonetheless, when spider veins are a concern there are two highly advanced treatment options available today. In fact, two of the best treatments are considered to be sclerotherapy and laser treatment for spider veins. Sclerotherapy offers safe and effective treatment using VARITHENA™, an FDA-approved sclerosant, to eliminate problem veins with pinpoint accuracy. Alternatively, endovenous laser ablation is a minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure which produces immediate results in most patients, and requires little to no recuperation time.
With either of these spider vein treatments, no anesthesia is required, they can be done in the doctor’s office, and are minimally invasive and virtually pain-free, with little to no recovery time.
