What Are Varicose and Spider Veins?
Varicose and spider veins can be red or blue and often appear on the face or legs. These superficial lines and protruding veins develop when too much pressure is put on certain parts of our bodies. When pressure builds up, varicose and spider veins become more prominent, acting like dead ends in the circulatory system. The pain felt by those struggling with their appearance comes from an excessive and unnatural buildup of blood. The added blood clumped in these veins has nowhere to go and thus swells the affected area, giving the veins their characteristic appearance.
How Can Vein Sclerotherapy Help?
Vein sclerotherapy is a treatment that involves the injection of a sclerosing solution into the tiny blood vessels that make up varicose and spider veins. The injection process is straightforward and typically preceded by the application of a numbing agent to the injection site. Once administered, the superficial blood vessels shrink in size and eventually collapse. Afterward, they are reabsorbed by your body naturally, providing relief from further irritation and improving the look of your skin.
