Spider veins, or telangiectasias, are branch-like blood vessels near the surface of the skin that appear red, purple, or blue and span greater than one millimeter. They can occur almost anywhere on the body but are most common on the face and legs. Spider veins can be caused by heredity, excessive standing, obesity, trauma, and exposure to UV radiation or excessive heat. Spider veins can be a sign of a more serious problem in the deeper veins, requiring medical attention.
*Individual Results May Vary.
Sclerotherapy treatment involves the injection of a medication into the dilated vessels. The medication makes the vein walls sticky, which causes them to close. You will notice your more even, vein-free complexion become apparent over the next few weeks as the body’s immune system naturally removes the damaged vessels.
