Spider veins are clusters of visible red or blue veins that typically show up on the legs. Spider veins can develop for any number of reasons, but they’re more likely to develop with age or during pregnancy. While there’s not much we can do to get rid of spider veins on our own, medical advances have allowed spider vein removal to become easier than ever before. We are proud to offer convenient and patient-centered spider vein removal options at MiKO Medspa. To find out if this treatment is right for you, contact our office to schedule an initial consultation.
Why Do Spider Veins Form?
While the exact reason varies from person to person, spider veins mainly form when the valves in the veins become faulty, and blood begins to pool within them instead of circulating properly. This forces them to enlarge and become visible on the skin.
Spider veins are usually not a health concern, but they can have a negative impact on one’s appearance. They also commonly bring with them itching and a dull, throbbing pain, which can both lead to significant discomfort throughout the day. Untreated spider veins run the risk of becoming varicose, which can lead to some serious health concerns.
What to Know About Spider Vein Removal
Spider vein removal is much more convenient now than it was in the past. Among the most common forms of treatment is sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure in which a saline solution is injected into the problem vein. The vein will collapse in response, and the blood will naturally reroute to healthier veins in the body. Sclerotherapy has been recognized as one of the most effective spider vein treatments for decades.
Spider veins can also be addressed with a variety of laser treatments, all of which are either minimally or non-invasive.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Spider Vein Removal?
Because spider vein treatment is typically an outpatient procedure that requires no more than a local anesthetic, most patients in generally good health make proper candidates. We will discuss your treatment options with you during your consultation and help you decide on the best course of action for your needs.
