Are Your Legs Ready for Spring?

treat your spider veins for better looking legsSpider veins are the mildest manifestation of venous insufficiency, similar to varicose veins but smaller. They are small, often tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin surface that frequently resemble spider webs or tree branches. They are generally red, blue or purple and are clearly visible, usually on the thighs and lower legs.

Spider veins, much like the underlying varicose veins, are caused by risk factors such as heredity, standing (teachers, nurses, factory workers) or sitting for long periods of time, excess weight, use of birth control pills, hormonal changes during pregnancy, previous blood clot and excessive sun exposure. Much like varicose veins, spider veins develop more often in women than men and the prevalence increases with age.

Although spider veins are largely asymptomatic, many patients notice itching, burning or bleeding (during shaving or gentle trauma). If there are underlying varicose veins with significant reflux (poor circulation due to backflow), there may be symptoms such as aching or cramping in the legs. Other common symptoms include tiredness, restlessness, burning, throbbing, tingling, or heaviness in the legs and swelling in the ankles. Pain caused by varicose veins is usually alleviated by elevating legs or by wearing prescription compression stockings. Left untreated, varicose veins may cause edema (swelling), ulcers and blood clots. A Phlebologist (vein specialist) will usually order an Ultrasound Duplex Scan of legs to help make the determination.

If legs are not bothersome except due to presence of visible veins on skin surface (spider veins, reticular veins and venulectasia) you may benefit from one or more sessions of spider vein treatment.

Introducing Next Generation Spider Vein Removal Treatments

Vein Clinic PA offers the next generation of spider vein treatments for removing spider veins. We provide the Gold Standard for the treatment of spider veins; injection sclerotherapy performed under the supervision of a licensed health professional. Treatment imaging is performed using Ultrasound, Veinlite and AccuVein®. Injection sclerotherapy involves our vein specialist injecting an FDA approved solution into the affected vein. Once the vein has been closed off from blood flow, it is slowly reabsorbed by the body, giving the legs an aesthetically pleasing look. We also use VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis to treat even the smallest and most curvy veins where sclerotherapy may not be an option. Patient results do vary and to obtain optimal results, an average of 3 to 4 treatments are recommended.

A VCPA patient recently shared with us:

I came in ten days ago to the clinic for sclerotherapy on my spider veins. I have had a few treatments at other places over the years and was never happy with how it turned out. This is the first time that I have been happy with how my legs have looked in years. I am so pleased with the outcome and recommend this clinic to everybody. Very nice experience - thank you! – Renee
