ELIMINATE UNSIGHTLY SPIDER VEINS
Spider veins are those small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and face. They become noticeable at a young age and progress with time. For others the veins may not become obvious until much later.
A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins. Most of these factors are influenced by genetics and aging. However, hormonal shifts such as pregnancy and weight gain may also play a role.
There are effective, safe and relatively painless methods available for reducing spider veins. Read below to identify the best option for you.

Spider vein treatment:
Fortunately, there are several excellent treatment options available at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery to erase unsightly and bothersome spider veins.
This is the most common method of treating spider veins in the legs, ankles and face. During treatment, a sclerosing solution is injected in to the affected veins. The injection irritates the inside of the veins, and overtime the vein will collapse and fade from view.
If you have multiple spider veins, the treatment will require multiple injections to collapse all the veins. Dr. Diamantis will use a bright light and magnification to ensure maximum precision while injecting the sclerosing solution.
After treatment, the area may be dressed with compression tape or stockings, or an elastic wrap for a period of time.
Spider veins may also be treated with a laser. In this method, and intense beam of light is directed at the spider vein/varicose vein, which obliterates it through the skin.
More than one laser session may be needed to obtain the desired results. Sometimes, laser therapy is used in combination with sclerotherapy.
Spider vein results:
After each spider vein treatment you will notice improvement of your skins appearance. However, it is important to realize the new spider veins may surface in the future.
As time passes, you may want to consider further treatment to take care of any new veins that may emerge.
The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. Be sure to discuss with Dr. Diamantis the results expected in your case, as well as the cost involved.
