It’s one of the ultimate ironies of life that the things you want most as you age – like clear, firm skin – only occur naturally when you are too young to appreciate them. You probably never appreciated your flawless, vein-free legs when you were 14, but now at the age of 44, you’d give anything to have them back again.
While time travel isn’t an option yet, sclerotherapy is great alternative way to resolve your unwanted varicose and spider veins. This treatment has been used for decades and will easily erase that web of blue and purple veins running across your legs.
Why Do Spider Veins Develop?
Spider veins can be easily recognized as the small red and purple blood vessels that twist and turn under the skin. Since they are situated so close to the skin’s surface, they are visible to the naked eye. Most spider veins appear on the legs, and some women are more impacted than others due to hormone fluctuations associated with pregnancy and menopause, participation in occupations that involve excessive standing, and heredity.
Though they are unattractive, spider veins don’t cause pain or indicate any serious health problems. They just form when the one-way valves that keep blood moving to the heart become defective and allow blood to backflow within the veins. This backflow causes the blood to pool, and spider veins become visible under the skin.
Sclerotherapy Easily Erases Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is a time-tested technology that is the best and most efficient way to zap away unwanted spider veins. If you’re serious about reclaiming your spotless, youthful legs, this is the procedure you want.
At Hermann Wellness in Tampa, Florida, Dr. Anne Hermann will complete your sclerotherapy treatment by injecting a salt solution directly into your unwanted spider veins. The solution will irritate the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell, clot, turn into scar tissue, and fade from sight. Blood will be rerouted through healthier veins deeper down away from the skin’s surface, and your skin will once again look flawless!
Sclerotherapy achieves a cumulative effect, so the best results can be seen after three to six treatments at Hermann Wellness. With no downtime required, you can leave Dr. Hermann’s office ready to resume your normal schedule. Call (813) 773-8214 to make your appointment today.
