The good news is there are a lot of ways that spider veins can be treated. The first step is seeing your dermatologist decide if leg vein treatment is safe for you. During your exam, your doctor will look closely at your leg veins and ask about your medical history. Non-invasive tests that look at the veins in your legs may also be necessary, which will also help with determining how your circulation is.
After reviewing all of the information, your dermatologist can tell you if vein treatment is right for you and which treatment would be most effective. Sometimes, more than one type of treatment will be recommended to give you the best results and reduce side effects.
Trust your demonologist to come up with the best treatment plan for your skins health, and also your body. Recommendations for treatment could be simple, like wearing compression bandages or support hose. Treatments that might be recommended are Sclerotherapy which is a safe treatment for spider veins and causes minimal discomfort. A concentrated salt (saline) or specially developed chemical solution is injected with a very small needle into the spider vein. This pickles the inside of the vein so it closes up and later collapses and becomes scar tissue that eventually is absorbed by the body. This treatment usually requires multiple sessions. Lasers have been used successfully as well, and are a good solution for veins on your face. These are just a few of the options your doctor might talk to you about.
