So…what are Spider Veins?
Millions of women ( and men ) have spider veins , they are small, annoying and unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple thread veins seen most commonly on the thighs, calves and ankles. In fact, it’s estimated that at least half of the adult female population is plagued with this common cosmetic problem.
Spider veins – known in the medical world as telangiectasias are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. Although these super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it.
A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins, including heredity, pregnancy and other events that cause hormonal shifts, weight gain, occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing, and the use of certain medications.
Spider veins usually take on one of three basic patterns. They may appear in a true spider shape with a group of veins radiating outward from a dark central point; they may be arborizing and will resemble tiny branch-like shapes; or they may be simple linear and appear as thin separate lines. Linear spider veins are commonly seen on the inner knee, whereas the arborizing pattern often appears on the outer thigh in a sunburst or cartwheel distribution.
How do we get rid of spider veins?
Unlike other centers and clinics, at VeinCure Clinic we can truly offer our patients the state of the art, effective and safe techniques which produce real, permanent results.
All treatments are performed under the direct supervision of a specialist Surgeon who is highly trained on veins treatments and since we do so many of these treatments at VeinCure, we have accumulated the richest, most refined experience in spider veins treatment which translate to enviable results and happy patients.
Some of the available treatments for “spider veins” at VeinCure Clinic include:
LASER Treatment of spider veins (Used on almost all small size spider veins):
Using the newest Spider Veins Laser Treatment technology,
Laser treatment can now effectively treat spider veins in the legs, face, chest and anywhere else in the body.
Laser sends strong bursts of light onto the vein. This makes the vein slowly fade and disappear. Lasers are very direct and accurate. So the proper laser controlled by a skilled Therapist will usually erase spider veins with amazing ease and simplicity. All skin types and colors can be safely treated with lasers.
Laser Therapy is more appealing to most patients because it does not use needles or incisions and we, at VeinCure use it extensively on most spider veins. Experience has given us the edge of perfecting the spider veins laser treatment to make it a real ” lunch break ” treatment with no down time, complications or pain.
Furthermore, different types of spider veins require different types of laser systems to treat effectively and safely, at VeinCure you will find all the state of the arts Spider Veins laser systems that cover the whole spectrum of spider veins of all types, location and sizes, to make them go away permanently and without a trace.
Laser treatment session last for 15 to 20 minutes. Depending on the amount and severity of the veins, one to four laser treatment sessions can be completed one visit, more visits may be needed to remove all spider veins in the legs if the patient has a large number of them.
Patients can return to normal activity right after treatment, no compression stockings or bandages are needed after laser spider veins treatment.
The new spider veins Laser just acquired by VeinCure is distinct in three major advantages:
- Immediate disappearance of spider veins
- No needles, no injections, no pain
- No thermal injury to the skin
The laser wave actually travels through the skin targeting only the red blood cells in the vein and causing it to seal shut immediately, i.e. disappear.
Sclerotherapy Treatment of spider veins (Used mostly on medium size veins or so called ” Reticular Veins ”):
The New Micro-Sclerotherapy (advanced, painless and very effective technique)
This was the most common treatment in the past for both spider veins and varicose veins. Using special tiny needles, The doctor injects a solution into the vein that causes the vein walls to stick together, and seal shut. This stops the flow of blood and the vein turns into non-visible scar tissue under the skin . In a few weeks, the vein fades away.
The sclerotherapy techniques have evolved over the years and became a much safer, more effective and painless treatment to certain medium size greenish veins. The choice of the sclerosing agent (the medicine used in the injection), its concentration, the use of special veins lighting equipments, a special tilting treatment table, the experience of the treating veins specialist, these are all important factors in the success of Sclerotherapy.
As we tell our patients , Not all Sclerotherapists are created equal, Our patients enjoy a 70% to 90% clearance of their unsightly veins treated by this method from the first time.
The patient plays a pivotal role in the Sclerotherapy success by following the post procedure instructions properly.
Some other advanced Sclerotherapy techniques, we regularly use at VeinCure are briefly described below:
Foam Sclerotherapy is another form of treatment that allow the Doctor to treat larger (reticular) VeinCure Clinic veins.
Ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy is used to treat deeper, non-visible diseased veins that are causing the appearance of the more superficial veins .
Vein-light and Accuvein guided Sclerotherapy is yet another technique that we utilize at VeinCure to treat smaller “feeder veins” with the aid of skin trans-illumination apparatus called VeinLite or Accuvein.
For best results, Compression stockings or local bandage should be worn for few days , during day time only, after Sclerotherapy.
Possible side effects of laser surgery or sclerotherapy include:
Results can be different from one patient to another
Redness or swelling of the skin right after the treatment that disappears within a few days.
Discolored skin that will disappear within one to two months.
Most side effects are rare , almost all our patients enjoy very satisfying results.
