Spider Vein Treatment in Atlanta, GA

What Is Spider Vein Treatment?

Spider veins are clusters of red, blue, or purple blood vessels that often appear on the face, legs, and foot. Although they are not painful like varicose veins, spider veins are progressive and may increase in number as a person ages. To treat these unsightly blood vessels, Vein and Skin Laser Center offers spider vein treatment to residents of Atlanta, GA.

How Is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?

To treat spider veins, physicians usually perform sclerotherapy or laser vein removal. Sclerotherapy uses a sclerosing solution, which can be either a saline solution or a special detergent, to damage the walls of the blood vessels until they collapse. Gradually, the body absorbs them, and blood flow is redirected to nearby healthier veins. As another option, laser vein removal directs pulses of light energy into the targeted veins to damage them. This method is usually recommended for the treatment of facial veins.

Sclerotherapy and laser vein removal usually require more than one treatment session. Also, the results of both treatments are not immediately visible since the body takes some time to absorb the damaged veins. Compression stockings should be worn after the procedures to minimize bruising.
