Varicose & Spider Veins

Varicose & Spider Veins

Varicose veins are twisted veins that can be blue, red, or skin-colored. The larger veins may appear ropelike and make the skin bulge out. They are often found on the thighs, the backs and fronts of the calves, or the inside of the legs near the ankles and feet. During pregnancy, varicose veins can happen around the inner thigh, lower pelvic area, and buttocks. Whereas Spider veins, or thread veins, are smaller than varicose veins. They are usually red. They may look like tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can usually be seen under the skin, but they do not make the skin bulge out like varicose veins do. They are usually found on the legs or the face.

Women are more likely to have varicose veins and spider veins. For many people, these are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, it can cause aching pain and discomfort. Sometimes lead to more-serious problems.

Treating varicose veins is a very safe and simple process. According to the severity of varicose veins, there are several treatments including non-invasive and minimally invasive options like

  • Laser Treatment: Latest laser technology is used to close off smaller varicose veins and spider veins. Laser treatment works by sending strong bursts of light onto the vein, which makes the vein slowly fade and disappear. No incisions or needles are used.
  • Sclerotherapy: In this procedure, your doctor will inject small and medium sized veins with a solution or foam that scars and closes those veins. In a few weeks, treated varicose veins will fade. Although the same vein may need to be injected more than once, sclerotherapy is effective if done correctly. It is an outpatient procedure performed without anesthesia.
  • Injectable: Injection of a large vein with a foam solution is also a possible treatment to close a vein and seal it.
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This is an outpatient procedure, where the doctor removes smaller varicose veins through a series of tiny skin punctures. Only the parts of your leg that are being pricked are numbed. Scarring is generally minimal.

Post Treatment

For best results, Compression stockings or topical bandage application should be worn for few days (during daytime only) after Sclerotherapy. After treatment with Laser, no compression bandage is necessary. Most of the treated veins will disappear immediately after the treat. However, there are might be some portion of veins which will appear thinner and darker for a couple of weeks and fade away slowly. At times the more resistant veins, need second round of treatment about 6 weeks after the first treatment in order to get rid of it completely.
