Do you find yourself skipping out on wearing your favorite shorts because you are embarrassed by the appearance of your legs? Dealing with unwanted veins can be very frustrating, and it is often an unwelcome aspect of the natural aging process. If you are battling with spider veins, there are a number of options that are available that might work for you.
Spider veins are very unsightly. They can detract from your appearance. The one positive thing about spider veins is that they are usually harmless. They usually do not lead to serious health conditions. That being said, spider veins can burn, they can itch, and they can cause aching. This is especially true for individuals who stand for long periods of time.
If you have spider veins, there are number of treatments that might help. Sclerotherapy, for example, is one of the most popular spider vein treatments available. This is a non-surgical treatment where a solution that scars the veins and eventually causes them to collapse is injected. When the affected veins collapse, blood is rerouted through healthy veins. Over the course of a few weeks, you’re going to notice that the treated spider veins disappear.
Sclerotherapy is very effective if it is done correctly. It may be necessary to treat the same vein more than once, but eventually the desired results will be seen. Sclerotherapy is awesome in that it does not require any form of anesthesia, it can be done in the clinic, and it does not produce serious long-term side effects. You might have a little swelling or itching in the treated area, but that will quickly subside.
Because of their unsightly nature, spider veins can affect a person’s self-esteem. They may cause a person to shy away from social settings that require them to wear clothing that exposes their spider veins.
