Spider veins are problematic veins that often appear on the surface of your skin. While they are more prone to appear on those who are growing older or on those with a genetic predisposition to them, they can occur on the skin of anyone of nearly any age. Although they are not usually considered to be dangerous to your physical health, they can affect your emotional health as they make you feel less beautiful and less confident when out in public. Thankfully, today there are several options for getting rid of spider veins permanently. Here, we help you know if you may be a candidate for spider vein treatment at Rejuveination in Cincinnati.
In general, you are a candidate for spider vein treatment if you are troubled by or embarrassed of those tiny web-like veins on the surface of your skin. These veins are most often red, blue or purple and often clump together in circular patterns. While they are often found on your legs, they could appear anywhere on your body. In addition, you should have a positive outlook for treatment and recovery, be committed to the full treatment protocol and understand that you could still have new spider veins appear later in your life.
If your spider veins are embarrassing you or causing you to stay away from certain events or clothes, you may do well with sclerotherapy treatment, which hardens and kills the problematic vein.
When our patients have positive outlooks and realistic expectations for their spider vein treatment, they are usually pleased with how their skin looks several months after treatment. They will feel more confident in their own bodies and often feel more youthful and vibrant.
Of course, the best way to find out if you are a candidate is to visit with us in Cincinnati. We can look at your problem veins, discuss your symptoms with you and perform non-invasive testing to see if you have venous insufficiency as the cause of spider veins. For this, we use a handheld ultrasound device that rests on the surface of your skin and shows us the veins hiding just below the surface of the skin. Using this, we can find out if there is backflow of blood in your veins and if your venous valves are healthy.
No one has to live with spider veins any longer. Once we determine that you are a candidate for spider vein treatment, we can use a simple treatment to get rid of these eyesores once and for all. If you are tired of hiding your legs or other areas of your skin where spider veins may be, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced and knowledgeable practitioners at Rejuveination in Cincinnati today.
