Effective Treatment Options for Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Although there are a variety of skin-related issues that can compromise an individual's self-confidence, grappling with spider veins and varicose veins can be particularly problematic.
Despite this fact, there are a variety of treatments that our board-certified dermatologists offer individuals plagued by these conditions. By learning more about them, you can make a prudent decision regarding whether seeking assistance from a dermatologist would be ideal for you.
Sclerotherapy with Asclera
Sclerotherapy is a common cosmetic treatment performed by injecting Asclera. The injectable treatment then causes scar tissue to form at the tagreted spider or varicose veins. This helps decrease the appearance of enlarged veins. Asclera is a prescription medication used during the sclerotherapy procedure. Sclerotherapy is effective in treating simple, small spider and varicose veins that populate the legs.
Hypertonic saline injections is an alternative treatment that works by irritating the blood vessel lining, thereby causing the lining to swell and subsequently stick together. The solution also causes blood clotting. After a while, the blood vessel becomes scar tissue and is less visible than before.
Intense Pulsed Light therapy treatments work by heating the blood cells inside vessels to cause vascular damage. This causes the production of scar tissue, which then closes the vein. Once the vein is closed, it no longer has a blood source and disappears over time.
