The Truth About Spider Veins
These little veins can be an early sign of future vein problems
Spider veins are dilated blood vessels that appear on the legs, hands, chest, and face. These tiny blue or red clusters of veins can be the earliest sign of a vein disorder. Most often, they are a cosmetic problem, though some people report itching or stinging.
Having your spider veins treated early can keep them from multiplying and becoming harder to remove later on. If you’re bothered by your spider veins, Heart Vascular & Leg offers the gold standard of spider vein treatment, sclerotherapy. This vein therapy requires no anesthetic and involves a series of gentle injections of a special solution to collapse the spider veins, causing their dark, unsightly appearance to fade away.
Dr. Williams also offers laser treatment for spider veins. Before recommending any treatment, he will talk with you about the most appropriate treatment option for your situation and body.
Controlling spider veins on your own
There are several ways you can minimize the effects and growth of spider veins without medical treatment. Depending on the severity of your vein problem, we may recommend you try these techniques first:
- Wear compression stockings to support your lower legs.
- Maintain a healthy weight. Extra weight puts stress on your circulation.
- Exercise regularly to promote healthy blood circulation. Cardio-based workouts are best.
- Wear low-heeled shoes. High heels put unneeded stress on your circulation.
We can determine whether your problem is medical or cosmetic and offer quick and often pain-free treatments to give you relief and make your legs beautiful again. Call us at (855)-827-2852 to make an appointment.
