What Other Methods Can Be Used for Spider Veins Treatments?
Spider veins can be treated using other different methods such as injections techniques like Sclerotherapy
Sclerotherapy is a process that can be used to treat varicose veins, spider veins, and telangiectasias (small, unsightly blood vessels) on the face or body. This procedure involves inserting a solution into the vein and applying heat to create a reaction. The solution called a sclerosant, upsets the veins and causes them to break. Over time, the vein turns into scar tissue that vanishes. This process can be done in a doctor’s office or at home.
This method has some side effects such as bruising, slight swelling, redness, and itching in injected areas. If the solution leaks out of the vein, darkening of the skin and pain occurs.
