Lasers for Unwanted Blood Vessels
Various lasers are used to lighten or remove unwanted or abnormal blood vessels in the skin. They work by flashing a brief pulse of light on the skin that is strongly absorbed by vascular lesions. The targeted vessels are microscopically heated by this process and the body reacts by eliminating the intentionally injured vessels, reabsorbing them over a period of days to weeks. This type of treatment specifically minimizes unwanted blood vessels without harming the surrounding healthy skin.
Laser treatment of spider veins may be recommended for patients whose vessels have either been resistant to sclerotherapy or are too fine to inject with a needle. The laser produces a beam of light that penetrates relatively deeply into the skin where leg spider veins are often found. The treated skin will feel warm for up to a couple of hours and it may appear blotchy red for a few days. This treatment is also popular among patients who are concerned about the idea of sclerotherapy using needles for the spider veins of their legs. Read more.
Sclerotherapy for Unwanted Leg Veins
Together, spider veins and varicose veins affect approximately 80 million people in the United States each year. Spider veins are most commonly located on the face and legs. In contrast, varicose veins tend to be localized on the backside of the calf or along the inside of the leg. Although physicians do not fully understand the cause of spider and varicose veins, they do attribute factors such as genetics, weight gain, and hormonal fluctuations associated with pregnancy, birth control pills, and hormone replacement therapy, as well as sitting or standing for extended periods of time.
Although they have similar causes, spider veins and varicose veins are not the same. Spider veins are generally small thread-like veins with a blue or reddish color that appear beneath the skin’s surface. These veins can have a characteristic circular pattern similar to a spider’s web, or can be independent of other veins. Unlike spider veins, varicose veins are generally swollen, twisted cord-like veins that rise off the skin’s surface. Usually deeper than spider veins, varicose veins are flesh-colored or blue in appearance and can cause pain, cramps, swelling, and fatigue in the legs. While sclerotherapy is used to treat a variety of spider and varicose veins, surgical treatment may be more appropriate for the treatment of medium and large varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy is used to treat unwanted leg veins, otherwise known as spider veins; the very small thin, threadlike veins that lie close to the skin’s surface and are commonly red, blue, or purple in appearance. Spider veins grow from “feeder” veins, called reticular veins in medical terms.
Sclerotherapy is performed by carefully injecting sclerosing solution into the unwanted vein. The solution causes the veins to collapse and fade. Multiple sclerotherapy sessions may be required to achieve desired results. There are a few rare risks involved with sclerotherapy, including inflammation, the formation of blood clots in the veins, and adverse allergic reactions to the sclerosing solution. As always consultations are recommended. The benefits of treatment can include cosmetic improvement as well as an increase in self esteem and confidence.
As the most common treatment option available, sclerotherapy is a safe, effective, nearly painless procedure used to treat spider veins and varicose veins on the body. Read more.
