Spring is officially here and summer is quickly approaching, which means that people are already trading in their winter wardrobe of sweaters and pants for a summer attire of sundresses, skirts, and shorts. However, some people are more reluctant than others to shed their winter clothing and reveal their legs because of unsightly spider veins. These veins are usually red or blue and look similar to spider webs close to the surface of the skin.
Causes of Spider Veins
The short, jagged lines known as spider veins develop as a result of superficial blood vessels. These can be caused by any of the following:
Prolonged sitting or standing
Exposure to the sun
Treatment of Spider Veins
For patients who wish to eliminate the appearance of spider veins on their legs or any other area of the body, Dr. Verebelyi uses the most advanced forms of sclerotherapy and laser vein removal to achieve optimal results. In some cases, an ultrasound is performed to determine the root cause of the spider vein and ensure the correct vessels can be targeted for treatment. Sclerotherapy is a simple procedure in which a small amount of solution is injected into the damaged veins. This solution causes the vein to close, and the body will naturally remove the targeted vessels. This treatment can have your legs summer-ready within a few short weeks.
