Affecting more than 30 percent of the population, spider veins are most commonly found on the face or legs. They are usually flat or slightly raised, blue, purple or red in colour and appear in the shape of thin lines or webs. Leg spider veins occur when the blood pools in nearby larger veins, which spills or overflows into smaller neighboring veins. While they are not usually painful, many patients prefer to treat their spider veins for cosmetic reasons.
Sclerotherapy is the faster, safest and most effective way to treat spider veins and varicose veins. This non-invasive treatment makes the varicose or spider veins shrink and disappear after 3-4weeks.
Used for both large and small veins with an excellent success rate, Sclerotherapy not only treats the main offending vein, but it also prevents smaller veins from progressing into larger bulging varicose veins. To increase its effectiveness, reduce discomfort and quicken recovery, Sclerotherapy can be combined with ultrasound technology.
