4 Things to Know about Spider Vein Removal
Spider veins are one of the most common cosmetic issues suffered by women (and some men) during their adult years. While they might not be as bad, or as common as an issue like wrinkles, somehow, they manage to make women feel more self-conscious than anything else. They keep you from wearing skirts and shorts in the summer, and make your favorite stockings look terrible the rest of the year. There’s just something about those bluish red spider web looking things we just can’t stand. However, for spider vein treatment Queens medical spa, Aesthetic Solutions, has got a few amazing options for you! When it comes to spider vein treatment Queens women tend to be fairly uneducated on the process, whether it be due to the weather often preventing them from wearing skirts anyway or something else – many women tend to believe that spider vein removal is some long, drawn-out, confusing process, that will cost them an arm and a leg. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Spider vein removal is usually a relatively quick and easy process. That said, if you’re looking to get rid of your spider veins, treatment isn’t necessarily something you want to rush into – and it is best to educate yourself as much as possible on the possible options and things to know about treatment. Without any further ado here are 4 important things to know about spider vein removal.
When it comes to spider vein treatment Queens medical spa, Aesthetic Solutions, prefers to use two specific methods of treatment, with one being favored over the other. The most common and some would say most effective, for spider veins, is sclerotherapy. Using a special solution, that is injected directly into the unwanted spider vein, we are able to completely cut it off from the other blood vessels of the body. The thing with spider veins are, is that they are small, and often networked like a spider web. Therefore, when they are cut off using the process of sclerotherapy, another vessel can easily take over the blood flow. The sclerotherapy solution works to breakdown the inner walls, lining the vein, and eventually they will damage the vein enough that it loses its connection to the other vessels. Then it will slowly shrink and disappear, being absorbed into the body.
The second most common method of spider vein treatment Queens patients prefer is with lasers. Some would argue that this method is actually more effective, as it is used for much larger, spider veins or varicose veins. The laser energy penetrates the skin’s surface, into the vein – heating the inner lining enough to cut off its connection to everything else. Other blood vessels take over, and the vein disappears in to the body.
· Relatively Fast & Easy
While it is definitely dependent on the size and area being treated, spider vein removal treatment is extremely quick and easy. In many instances it can be completed, in anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes.
· Repeat Treatments
The one thing to be aware of is that while sclerotherapy might be very effective, these unwanted veins are quite pesky and can easily come back. In these instances, you will need to repeat treatment, possible 2-4 times for best results, spaced a few weeks or months apart.
