Spider veins are smaller and less severe than varicose veins. They are smaller, twisted blood vessels that have become visible through the skin. Turning purple, red, or more commonly, blue and they mostly appear on the legs or face.
Sclerotherapy is an in-office treatment for spider veins, the thin red or purple veins on the skin’s surface. Dr. Chaudhary injects a sclerosing solution directly into the vein, which irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to scar and collapse. This forces the blood to reroute through healthier veins, while the damaged vein fades away over the next two to six months.
If you notice you have visible blood vessels on your legs or face you may be a candidate for sclerotherapy. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Chaudhary, and she will determine what treatment is best for your veins. Your first vein appointment is a Medical Office Visit and requires Insurance.
