If you have the dreaded spider veins or varicose veins, you’re probably well aware that you do. Varicose veins pop up uninvited, usually on your legs, making wearing shorts, skirts or short dresses a stressor; spider veins, however, can appear anywhere, even on the face. These veins are not a health concern, but they are unsightly and can sometimes be painful. If you want to get rid of yours, we don’t blame you. Fortunately, doing so can be easy with Aspire Skin + Wellness!
What Are Spider Veins/Varicose Veins?
These are red, blue or purple vein clusters that spread out across your legs or other areas of your face and body in a spider web pattern. They occur when blood pools in veins near the skin’s surface. While you certainly don’t need them for any reason, they are unlikely to disappear without treatment.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is our non-surgical, not painful, fast and easy way to get rid of those unsightly veins. It is an extremely simple process in which we inject a solution into the spider vein, called a sclerosant. This injection causes the vein to swell up, which cuts off its blood supply, causing it to die and collapse and be flushed out by the body.
How Do We Treat Spider Veins and Varicose Veins at Aspire Skin + Wellness?
Wendy Brown, our Registered Nurse, is an expert at sclerotherapy. She will inject the sclerosant into your varicose/spider veins as necessary and then massage the area to make sure blood doesn’t get back in. Depending upon the location of your spider veins, you may get a compression garment to wear for a while. Over time, the veins will fade as they die off and collapse.
