Getting Rid Of Spider Veins
With summer coming soon, those thin, dark veins crisscrossing your legs and feet are going to start peaking out. They didn’t used to be there, but your spider veins have become as much a part of your life now as brushing your teeth.
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are thin blue, red or purple veins which stand out against light skin. They look like spider legs, which is where the name comes from.
Where do they come from?
Spider veins develop because of genetics, pregnancy, poor circulation, hormonal shifts, weight gain, and jobs with lots of sitting or standing. They are caused by pooling of blood in veins, which makes them stand out.
Is it a common condition?
More than half of all women deal with spider veins at some time in their life. They affect men too, but they appear less frequently in men.
Can they be treated?
Absolutely. There are two treatments to eliminate spider veins, both of which are offered by Allure Med Spa.
Sclerotherapy works by injecting a sclerosing medicine into your veins, which shrinks the clotting veins. They are then reabsorbed by the body, and the blood is rerouted into healthier veins. The entire procedure takes about fifteen minutes and requires no anesthesia.
Laser Vein Treatment
Laser vein treatment is similar to sclerotherapy, except lasers are used to close off the damaged veins, encouraging blood to flow through other healthier veins.
