What Are Varicose and Spider Veins?
Small, web-like patterns that appear on the surface of your skin are called spider veins. They are generally harmless and only rarely cause pain or discomfort. However, you might choose to treat them for cosmetic reasons, especially if they appear on your face or neck. Larger sections of veins that appear twisted or bunched, much like a coil of rope just below the skin, are called varicose veins. These are sections of your veins that are filled with pooled blood, which can distort the vein wall.
Varicose veins may be painful. They can also cause inflammation, dryness, and scaling in the surrounding skin. Some people report that varicose veins make their legs feel achy or heavy.
What Vein Treatment Options Are Available?
When you visit Chetco Medical & Aesthetics for treatment, you have choices.
If you are bothered by either spider or varicose veins, sclerotherapy offers a minimally-invasive vein treatment option. It involves injecting a sclerosant solution into the affected vein to cause irritation and swelling.
Blood flow will be diverted from the affected vein to nearby healthy ones. Treated veins should eventually close themselves off and get eliminated naturally. Sclerotherapy has been practiced in some form since the 1930s. It has a long history of successfully treating vascular abnormalities and an excellent safety record.
Laser treatments use the energy generated by lasers to penetrate the skin and shrink blood vessels and veins. At Chetco Medical & Aesthetics, we use the Clarity laser system to effectively shrink smaller spider veins and vascular abnormalities that are close to the skin’s surface. It is generally effective at reducing the appearance of these imperfections.
The Clarity laser is completely non-invasive, as the laser is directed at the skin itself. Treatments are generally described as comfortable. Laser treatments may be an excellent choice if your spider veins and broken blood vessels are on your face or neck.
Who Should Consider Undergoing Vein Treatment?
Keep in mind that individual results can vary; however, adults with spider or varicose veins that cause pain, discomfort, or self-consciousness may want to consider getting a professional treatment to alleviate their symptoms. It’s important to talk to a qualified professional to find the right vein treatment for your condition, symptoms, and goals.
