Summertime means shorts, skirts, and bikinis…unless you are suffering from varicose or spider veins. If you have these veins on your body, you may be trying to cover them up, even as the temperatures soar. At Beauty Skin Laser, we have the solution for you!
What are Varicose and Spider Veins?
When veins bulge and fail to properly circulate blood throughout your body, varicose and spider veins may occur. Varicose veins are long, visible, palpable (can feel by touching), and bulging veins, most commonly found in the legs and thighs, but can develop anywhere in the body. Spider veins (telangiectasias) are short, fine, typically not palpable, and often web-like lines on the skin’s surface. Most commonly found in the thighs, ankles, and feet, spider veins may also appear on the face.
Causes of Varicose and Spider Veins
Varicose and spider veins can be caused by a variety of factors and can occur in men or women of any age, while women in their childbearing years and older people are the most frequently affected. Some risk factors include: a sedentary lifestyle or prolonged standing, weight gain or pregnancy, or a family history of varicose and spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate unsightly, aching varicose veins and spider veins. A liquid solution is injected directly into the vein. This solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to dilate. The vein will collapse, stick together, and the blood will clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades away and will not reappear. Spider veins generally respond in three to six weeks, while larger veins respond in three to four months. Depending on the severity of your condition, multiple treatments may be needed and you will need to return for additional injections as new veins appear.
