If the appearance of veins on your face, legs, or anywhere else is making you self-conscious, we can help you to feel better by lessening their appearnce. Spider veins and varicose veins are a result of blood not flowing properly within the veins. It stays still, darkens, and makes your veins appear.
These darkened veins can be a source of embarrassment and insecurity and, at JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we offer several different methods to help you be rid of them. We serve clients in the Manhattan, New York area and nationwide. Our team can answer all of your questions about spider vein treatment. Call us at (888) 610-3133.
Causes of Spider Veins
Spider veins occur when little one-way valves within veins wear down and can't push the proper amount of blood through them. There can be other causes of spider veins, including:
- Occupations that require prolonged periods of standing or sitting
- Being overweight
- Some birth control pills may be a partial cause
- A history of blood clots
Spider veins are much more common in women and, in some cases, can develop because of certain postmenopausal hormone replacement plans.
Treatment of Spider Veins
Spider veins and varicose veins can be treated in the following ways:
Using a laser to treat your spider veins or varicose veins, we can help the dark color of the stagnant blood to disappear and your spider veins or varicose veins to effectively disappear. You may need more than one treatment depending on the size of your varicose or spider veins and the darkness of the blood within them.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure where our Manhattan dermatologist injects a chemical into your varicose and spider veins. This chemical makes the blood vessel constrict and causes your body to remove them naturally.
For the largest or most severe varicose veins, we may recommend a minor surgical procedure known as ambulatory phlebectomy.
