How often do you wear pants during the hot summer months or long cover-ups at the beach simply because you are embarrassed by your legs? Visible veins become more common as we age, and you may be at an increased risk for them if your parents suffered with them. Depending on how the veins look and why they occurred, you could be dealing with either spider veins or varicose veins. To learn more about possible treatments, such as sclerotherapy, call Rejuveination in Cincinnati today!
Spider veins are incredibly common and appear as small sunbursts on your legs. However, their visible red and purple lines probably do not bring a sunny smile to your face. You may spend hours every month trying to find new ways to cover them up. You may have changed your wardrobe, tried to stay away from events at pools or on beaches and purchased tubes and spray bottles of makeup in an effort to cover up these colorful patches.
Did you know that you do not have to live with the look of spider veins on your skin anymore? With easy treatments right in our office in Cincinnati, you can have your spider veins destroyed permanently and will see your visible veins shrink and go away over the next few weeks to months.
One of the most common treatments used for ridding the skin of spider veins is sclerotherapy. With sclerotherapy, we use a tiny needle to inject a destructive substance directly into the problematic vein. Your problematic veins are destroyed, and your blood is redirected to healthy, non-visible veins.
Keep in mind that you will probably need to return again for additional treatments to ensure that we get rid of all of the problematic areas. Over time, you will seek these veins turn white before eventually disappearing altogether.
While you may be able to go home immediately following the procedure, we do recommend that you avoid major aerobic activity for the next few days to allow your body to heal. We will give you any other instructions for caring for the area or what to do in the case of discomfort before you leave our facility. Most patients have no discomfort following the procedure, however.
You do not have to accept your spider veins as just another negative consequence of getting older. With sclerotherapy, you can experience gorgeous skin that you want to show off once again.
