Here, we explain the root causes of spider veins and why sclerotherapy is an excellent treatment option to banish them.
What triggers spider veins?
Spider veins appear as tiny, visible veins, usually blue or purplish in hue. These are essentially dilated capillaries, the tiniest blood vessels in your body, and they commonly appear on your face and legs.
Some of the risk factors that make you more prone to developing spider veins include long hours of standing, pregnancy, being overweight, a family history of spider veins, and hormonal changes such as menopause. While some risk factors are unavoidable, you can manage others with lifestyle adjustments.
Regardless of the underlying causes, seeking spider vein treatment with Dr. Panagotacos can be a transformative experience.
Why sclerotherapy stands out in treating spider veins
Multiple treatment avenues exist for addressing spider veins — these range from laser treatments to ablation. However, Dr. Panagotacos finds that sclerotherapy is a particularly effective choice for the following reasons:
It’s highly effective
Sclerotherapy has long been recognized as one of the top methods for treating spider veins. Injecting the sclerosing solution into the veins causes them to collapse and, over time, fade away. With consistent success rates, it ensures that those unsightly veins become a thing of the past.
It’s minimally invasive, with few side effects
Sclerotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure, which means there's no need for any incisions. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort, and any side effects, like minor swelling or redness, tend to be temporary. It’s a safe treatment with a track record of excellent results.
It’s quick and convenient
For those on a tight schedule, sclerotherapy is a godsend. The treatment session often lasts less than an hour. Plus, there's little to no downtime involved — you won’t need to take time off for recovery. You may need to avoid strenuous activity for a while, but you can otherwise get back to your daily routine immediately, on your way to clearer skin.
