How to Say Goodbye to Spider Veins for Good
While spider veins are usually something that shouldn’t cause you worry, many of us don’t love their appearance. You’re not alone if you’ve searched Google for all the natural home remedies to rid your legs of spider veins. But unfortunately, a lot of the time, there isn’t much that can be done to rid you of these pesky light blue, red, or purply marks that appear with age. There are a few things that could cause spider veins from too much sun (hello, Florida living) to hormonal changes to medications or alcohol consumption, but don’t worry, one marg won’t cause spider veins.
What Are Spider Veins?
Before we dive into how to treat them though, we need to learn what they are! Spider veins are damaged veins that sit very close to the surface of the skin. This is why they’re so noticeable! These weakened veins still have blood flowing through them either to or from the heart. But because they’re weakened sometimes blood will go in both directions and pool. This is how spider veins start! Totally normal, nothing to be worried about, but definitely something many people prefer to rid themselves of. Luckily, we have a solution that works…
Say Hello to Sclerotherapy & Asclera
When it comes to spider vein treatment, there is one we at Ocean’s Dermatology think is better than the rest and that is sclerotherapy! This dependable cosmetic dermatology treatment is a simple injectable solution that has been used for decades, since the 1930s to be exact.
We use an injectable called Asclera, which is a magical potion that helps shrink the blood vessels or lymph vessels, so that blood can no longer flow through them, causing the bulge and discoloration to fade over time. Don’t worry, you don’t need them, and your blood will still flow freely and you’ll be healthy as ever. This treatment can also be used to reduce the appearance of varicose veins, which are essentially spider veins that are slightly raised!
Sometimes after the procedure you’ll have to wear compression socks as the treatment takes. Typically, you’ll notice a difference in about a month.
