If you have spider veins that you want to get rid of because of the negative impact they are having on your appearance, you might be happy to learn about Asclera® sclerotherapy treatment at our office. The solution is used because it is safe and effective for the removal of these often unwanted veins. While spider veins do not normally cause any physical pain or other discomforts, they can interfere with a person’s ability to have an active social life because of the self-esteem issues the condition frequently causes.
Spider veins get their name because they can look like the legs of a spider with their sharp turns and fine lines that become visible through the skin. They can also resemble a spider web because of the pattern of interwoven lines that they form. They can be purple, blue or red in color. The legs, face and chest are the most common places of the body on which they appear. The chance of them developing increases with age. This makes it even more desirable to have them removed. In many people’s eyes, they can be seen as a sign of aging.
Spider veins form because of a condition called venous insufficiency. This is when the blood is not flowing through the vessels properly and causes things like the backup of blood to enlarge the vessels. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins except for the size of the impacted veins. Spider veins impact the capillaries.
Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting a solution into the targeted veins. The solution will thicken the blood inside the vessel and irritate the walls at the same time. This causes the veins to collapse and close off. Gradually, the veins will disappear.
Asclera® is good for treating spider veins that are less than one millimeter in diameter. It can also be used for small varicose veins that are less than three millimeters thick. Overall, sclerotherapy is a proven and effective method for the treatment of unwanted veins. It has been in use for a long time and continues to be one of the most common treatment methods because of its success rate. It is also minimally-invasive and allows patients to get back to their normal life and everyday activities right away.
