Spider veins are brought about by venous insufficiency, a condition in which the blood does not flow through the vessels properly. Spider veins cause appearance issues, sometimes to the point that a person’s self-esteem can be damaged. If you are in a situation such as this, consider discussing Asclera® sclerotherapy with our specialist. It is the oldest of the vein treatment methods that are in use today, and it is one of the safest and most effective therapies available.
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins. The basic difference is in the size of the affected vessels. Spider veins develop in the capillaries, which are the smaller vessels that branch off from the veins and arteries in order to deliver blood to all parts of the body. They commonly develop on the face, chest and legs. Only in rare instances do they produce symptoms. For the most part, they only affect the appearance and do not create any other health risks. This cosmetic issue, however, can be serious in many people’s minds, especially if it interferes with a person’s ability to feel good about herself or himself.
Sclerotherapy is performed when a solution, or sclerosant, is injected into the problem vessels. We use Asclera®, which thickens the blood inside and irritates the walls, causing them to stick together. As a result, the veins will close off and be destroyed. What remains is a kind of scar tissue that the body will begin to absorb. Over the next several weeks, this tissue will be gone and there will be no visible signs of spider veins. Many patients see best results after just one single treatment session, whereas others may need more. We will help you learn how many sessions you can expect during your consultation.
Sclerotherapy is a fairly simple procedure to perform. The process typically takes 15-45 minutes to complete, after which you will be given compression stockings to wear for a short period of time. Asclera® is ideal for treating small, uncomplicated spider veins. If your spider veins are negatively affecting your life, sclerotherapy with the could be the solution.
