What are Spider and Varicose Veins?
Characterized by small, dark clusters of red or blue veins that can resemble a spider web, spider veins are typically asymptomatic but can be difficult to treat with conventional beauty products. Varicose veins are those that bulge, twist, and protrude prominently from the skin. Both of these vascular conditions can be caused by a variety of factors.
At Zhoy Vitality Center, we feature two of the most effective therapies for successfully vein removal – sclerotherapy and laser vein treatments.
A minimally-invasive therapy that targets specific veins without surgery, sclerotherapy is one of the most popular options for vein removal with a high rate of patient success. During sclerotherapy, a medicated sclerosing solution is injected into affected veins. The solution disrupts the lining of the vessels, causing them to stick together and clot the vein. This reroutes the blood to healthier vessels, and the veins are permanently sealed off.
After sclerotherapy treatment, treated veins turn to scar tissue that is eventually removed by the body and replaced with healthy tissue. Patients can typically return to normal activities after this treatment, but a daily walking regimen may be suggested in order to maintain proper circulation while the body works to remove the veins.
Laser Vein Treatment
Another popular and successful treatment for vein removal is through controlled laser energy. A focused beam of laser energy is focused on the treatment area, penetrating below the skin and gently heating the veins below the surface. This process causes the veins to seal shut, forming scar tissue that is removed by the body during natural processes. Although there is no downtime associated with this treatment, slight redness may develop on the skin for the first day or so.
The type of treatment that is recommended to you during your consultation may depend on your individual preferences and the severity of your condition. Multiple sessions may be necessary, and Dr. Salem will create a customized treatment plan for you.
