As the brisk winter starts to die down and the warmth of spring starts making its appearance, summer looks even closer. During this time we’re all cleaning out our winter closets and refreshing them with short shorts and skirts. It’s almost time to show a little more skin, but scanning your wardrobe doesn’t feel as appealing as it should because you don’t actually like the look of your legs.
We’re not talking about the hairs you missed when shaving. It’s those deep colored noticeable veins that make you cringe just staring in the mirror. They come in 2 forms: Varicose veins or spider veins and they affect millions of adults. Spider veins are small- thin blood vessels that can be seen under the skin and are usually harmless. Varicose veins are thicker and protrude out of the legs. While it may be hard to prevent their onset, our dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, has years of experience helping those with varicose or spider veins find relief.
Varicose Vein Treatment
While surgical removal is still an option when necessary, varicose vein treatment has become much easier and less invasive with laser therapy. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we are proud to offer vein treatment with the following:
· Laser vein treatment -- a specialized laser helps to absorb the color of the stagnant blood within your vein. The laser absorbs the pigment and helps the appearance of those veins to effectively disappear.
· Sclerotherapy -- in this minimally-invasive procedure, our dermatologist can inject your varicose veins with a chemical that causes your veins to naturally contract and encourages your body to remove the unnecessary veins.
The good news is that no matter how visible the varicose or spider veins are, our dermatologist has options that will help alleviate them. With just a few treatments, those blue, red, or purple veins can effectively disappear. Both laser vein treatment and sclerotherapy can also help remove the thickness of a twisted varicose vein that juts out from your leg.
