Colder Weather Signals It's Time To Treat Unsightly Spider Veins

Schlerotherapy at The Adams Center Boston

As the temperatures begin to drop and we find ourselves spending more time indoors, it is a great time to treat unsightly spider veins. These reddish purple veins are commonly found on the thighs, calves, and ankles.  Spider Veins should not be confused with varicose veins.  Varicose veins are much larger in size and push the surface of the skin upward.  Treatment for varicose veins often requires surgery, whereas spider veins can be removed non-surgically.

Sclerotherapy is one popular treatment option that involves injecting a solution into several points along the vein.  The lining of the veins reacts to the solution and begins breaking down the vein’s walls.  Supportive stockings must be worn post treatment for compression, which assists in breaking down the vein walls.  The veins gradually disappear as they are absorbed back into the body.  This results in a more even, youthful appearance.

This is a non-surgical procedure that can be done in office.  However, please keep in mind you must wear supportive stockings post treatment for about two weeks, and the treated areas should be protected from the sun.
