Spider Vein Treatment – Treatment Options  

What are the care choices for the spider-vein?

The ‘gold norm’ for removing spider veins and thin reticular leg veins is sclerotherapy. Many doses with a sclerosing agent are administered into the accused leg’s irregular red, blue or purple spider veins. Injecting the infected veins with the sclerosing fluid allows the goal vein to shorten initially, and eventually die over a span of weeks while the body resorbs the treated vein naturally. The sclerosing agent, polidocanol, was recently licenced by the FDA for the treatment of spider veins. This drug injection is painless, and has a clear safety record.

To guarantee a good result, prescribed compression stockings can be used for one week following care. At the process, patients are advised to exercise for at least thirty minutes per day. Typically the patient needs at least 2-3 therapy sessions divided by many weeks to substantially change their leg appearance.

Were there any adverse effects?

Treatment side effects may involve nausea and leg swelling a few days after injection. Brown discoloration will occasionally occur around the vein, or scarring. The development of small, fresh blood vessels in the treated region which occur in people taking oestrogen-containing drugs within a month of therapy but this normally recovers spontaneously by 6 months. These minuscule vessels may be handled with beauty lasers.

Will laser treat spider veins?

Laser therapy should be used with smaller spiders, with impressive outcomes. Nd YAG lasers will remove these veins with little to no skin darkening and there is no need to wear protective stockings during the operation. It can take more than one therapy session to clear the veins entirely.

Would my spider veins come back?

The handled veins usually don’t recover. However, if you suffer from the underlying venous hypertension or varicose veins, following effective care, new spider veins can open up in the same places. If this happens you can see a venous disease doctor who can test the legs with ultrasound duplex. This test can determine whether your veins are going deeper. If they are, the underlying problem may be corrected to eliminate those smaller veins.
