Treatments for Spider Veins on the Legs
Spider Veins can be treated in a variety of ways. The treatment of choice will be dictated by the location and size of the vessels to be treated. Spider Veins on the legs are best treated through injection therapy or sclerotherapy. In this procedure a saline based solution is injected into the malformed veins causing them to shrink and close down. The damaged vessels will be re-absorbed by the body. Laser treatment for veins on the body does not offer the same consistent results as sclerotherapy and laser treatment has a very high risk of burns, blisters and scars associated with it. Laser treatment also has a low success rate when used to treat veins on the body
Patients will need three to five sessions of sclerotherapy for successful treatment. There is no downtime and patients can expect to return to work immediately after treatment. Depending upon the size of the vessels treated, compression hosiery may be required in order to cut down on healing time and number of treatments needed. Most patients are surprised by the fact that injection therapy is well tolerated and the healing time is relatively minimal. Most patients are usually fully healed in as little as two weeks. Treatments are scheduled two to six weeks apart.
Success rates for sclerotherapy are very high. Side effects and negative reactions are very extremely low. Always choose a physician or other trained professional that is extremely experienced in this protocol. Successful outcomes will depend upon the solution used and the skill of the health care provider.
