Get Rid of Spider Veins with Treatment in St. Charles & Aurora, IL
Spider Vein Treatment
Spider veins (or telangiectasias) are visible small veins within the skin, often appearing red, blue, or purple. They are often visible on the skin’s surface. The cause of spider veins is a faulty valve in a small vein under the skin. They frequently run in families, and their development is influenced by hormones. They tend to be multiple and grow larger over time.
Spider vein treatment involves the removal of the vein by damaging it and allowing the body to absorb it. There are several methods commonly used to accomplish this.
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for spider veins. A needle is injected into your spider vein. The needle has medicine that will seal off your vein and eventually causes to close. Your body will eventually absorb the vein.
Laser therapy is best utilized for fine veins or for more limited areas. A light beam heats up the vein, causing the vein to seal up and collapse. It will eventually disappear from view.
Tumescent Enhanced Sclerotherapy is a significant advance over traditional injection sclerotherapy and was invented at AmeriVein. As opposed to traditional sclerotherapy vein treatment, Tumescent Enhanced Sclerotherapy is less harsh on the patient because it does not require a high concentration of injection solution, and fewer treatments are required to yield the same results.
