What are spider veins?

Spider veins are veins that have been damaged over time. How does the vein become damaged? When the valves inside the veins weaken the valves end up pushing blood backward into the vein instead of towards the heart (which is what a healthy vein would do). Over time the extra blood in the vein adds pressure on the walls of the vein and leads to a weak and bulging vein which we call a spider vein. Spider veins appear as small, red, purple, and blue vessels and are they are very visible through the skin. Although this stubborn condition may seem as though it will never go away you can get sclerotherapy in Scottsdale and be on your way to smooth, vein free legs in no time!

You have a higher chance of developing spider veins if you:

  • Have blood relatives that have them
  • Sit or stand for long periods of time
  • Are older
  • Are pregnant
  • Are obese

Sclerotherapy in Scottsdale

So what does the sclerotherapy procedure do? The sclerotherapy procedure is a procedure where a saline injection is injected into the vein in order to collapse/cauterize the spider veins. This causes the walls of the vein to stick together and repairs the weakened valves and allows the blood to flow correctly once again leading to a disappearance of the spider veins. The number of treatments needed to correct spider veins varies from client to client. Overall a minimum of eight weeks is needed between each treatment. 

Post Treatment Recovery

After the sclerotherapy procedure there is little to no downtime needed. Following the treatment it is not recommended to stand for prolonged periods of time. The client must bring compression stockings with them to the procedure and will want to wear them following the treatment. 

Overall getting sclerotherapy in Scottsdale is the perfect remedy for getting rid of those stubborn spider veins. If you are interested in learning more about this treatment give us a call today at 1-800-851-0969 or click here to schedule your free consultation!
