SPIDER & VERICOSE VEINS

Dermatologist Orange County
 

Description

These are veins that are often seen on the thighs, around the knees, on the calves and around the ankles. They can be bluish and/or purplish-red in color. They do not serve a purpose, in terms of tissue oxygenation, and are the result of increased pressure in the deeper veins.

Treatment

What Can Be Done?

Sclerotherapy is the process of eliminating varicose veins and telangiectasias ("spider-veins") by injecting a solution (sclerosing agent) into the veins, and thereby dissolving them.

The majority of people who receive sclerotherapy are cleared of their small varicosities, or see a large improvement. Approximately 10% of patients have fair to poor results, meaning the veins have not disappeared after 6 treatments. Very rarely, the veins can become worse after treatment or new veins may develop.

You are a candidate for sclerotherapy if you have spider veins, reticular varicosities, recurrence of varicosities, are advanced in age, or any combination of these.
