This minimally invasive treatment for spider veins has been used for many years, and has a proven track record of success. Treatment involves injecting small amounts of medication into unhealthy veins. This solution causes slight aggravation in the lining of the treated vein, which leads to swelling that closes the vein off to blood flow. In time, the vein is absorbed by the body. Blood flow naturally redirects to a nearby vessel.
Endovenous thermal ablation is another non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment. It incorporates laser energy to close problem varicose veins that are causing unattractive marks on the skin and physical discomfort. This office procedure targets the lining of varicose veins with gentle heat delivered through a tiny catheter. In response to controlled heating, collagen within the treated veins contracts, and the vein closes off, eventually fading away. Like sclerotherapy, endovenous thermal ablation prompts blood flow to redirect to healthier veins.
Not all varicose veins and spider veins are medically significant. However, if their appearance is causing you to feel self-conscious, there is good reason to seek treatment to remove them. Sclerotherapy and endovenous thermal ablation are gentle, convenient, and effective. Learn more about these procedures, and be on your way to better looking skin in no time!
