If you struggle with the appearance of visible leg veins, it can be difficult to feel comfortable wearing certain styles that reveal your legs. You’re likely to be cautious of shorts or skirts and may even dread summer and sunny weather because it means less and lighter clothing. At the Laser & Skin Surgery Center in Ohio, Dr. Renuka Diwan wants all of her clients to feel youthful and confident in their bodies, which is why we are proud to offer sclerotherapy as well as laser treatments to address those pesky spider veins.
What Are Spider Veins?
You know spider veins when you see them, but many people don’t really understand why spider veins appear. These veins often have a red, purple, or blue color and are noticeable through the skin on a person’s legs.
The reasons for the appearance of spider veins include a number of factors including hormonal changes (e.g., pregnancy or menopause), a family history and genetic predisposition, and your occupation. Regardless of the origin of these spider veins, men and women who have them often struggle to hide these veins year round.
How are spider veins treated?
Sclerotherapy and laser treatments can help fade spider veins. Sclerotherapy is a time-honored treatment for spider veins. During this procedure, Dr. Renuka Diwan injects a concentrated saline solution into the problem spider veins. This solution helps the targeted vessels to close. Once this area heals, you won’t have visible, colorful veins any longer. Laser treatments performed by Dr. Renuka Diwan are another option for spider veins. Both treatments are completed in our office.
At the Laser & Skin Surgery center, we personalize sclerotherapy and laser treatments to the needs of our clients. Thankfully, these treatments allow our clients to return to work right after their treatments. Wearing compression hose for the following three days after treatment is important for the healing, so we will work with your schedule to find the perfect time for you.
What About The Results?
With just one treatment, your spider veins will be noticeably improved. Sclerotherapy or laser treatment is one of most satisfying treatments available for those with spider veins for this very reason. Just keep in mind that it takes some time for the treated vein to heal (up to six weeks).
Additional treatment sessions may be recommended to fully eliminate spider veins. In your initial consultation with Dr. Diwan, she will talk with you about how many treatment sessions she expects you will need to get the satisfying results you desire, as well as the recovery process itself.
