spider vein

Spider veins 

Spider veins, scientifically known as telangiectasias, are diminutive veins characterized by their diverse colors, visible just beneath the surface of the skin. These veins typically manifest as delicate, reddish, or purplish lines and are predominantly located on the lower extremities, notably the legs.

In the realm of spider vein management, there exist two principal treatment modalities: sclerotherapy and laser therapy, both of which offer effective solutions for their reduction or elimination.

It is noteworthy that spider veins tend to affect women more frequently than men. In most instances, spider veins are benign and non-painful, generally posing no significant health risks. However, if these veins do cause discomfort or any undesirable symptoms, it is prudent to seek professional medical advice and explore the available treatment options through consultation with a qualified healthcare provider.

how can we do sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy effectively treats varicose and spider veins.

It’s often considered the treatment of choice for small varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein.

The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, forcing blood to reroute through healthier veins.

What is the difference between sclerotherapy and foam sclerotherapy?

Both procedures use the same ‘sclerosing’ agent — sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS). With “sclerotherapy,” the solution is injected in its liquid form. Generally, it is used in cosmetic procedures. With foam sclerotherapy, air is mixed with the sclerosing agent to achieve a consistency similar to shaving cream. This foam is more useful in the treatment of longer and larger veins. Insurance is more likely to cover the foam procedure. RIA Endovascular can provide guidance on which vein therapy is best for you.
