Spider veins are like varicose veins but smaller. They also are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. Often, they are red or blue. They can look like tree branches or spider webs with their short, jagged lines. They can cover either a very small or very large area of skin.
Varicose veins are not treatable with Microsclerotherapy.
Microsclerotherapy is the most common treatment for spider veins. It is a safe and effective treatment when aftercare advice is followed. A solution called a sclerosing agent is injected into the veins to break down the vein wall, eliminating the unsightly appearance of the veins.
The same vein may need to be treated more than once. The number of treatments required varies from person to person and it’s rare for veins to reappear following treatment.
Treatments are usually done every 4 to 6 weeks. To date, the use of lasers to treat leg veins are not as effective as Microsclerotherapy.
Some of the benefits that you will notice almost immediately:
- Results after one treatment
- Minimal recovery time
- Preventative treatment to larger veins
- Clear skin
