Spider & Varicose Vein Removal

Millions of people suffer from unsightly reddish vascular conditions. Although these imperfections are generally more of a cosmetic rather than a medical issue, many people would like to be rid of these unattractive veins and blemishes.

Varicose veins are defined as veins that are dilated, elongated, and tortuous irrespective of size. The term usually refers to the veins of the legs. Varicose veins are distinguished from spider veins (telangiectasias) by the size and location of the veins, but both are a cause of valve insufficiency.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure used for varicose vein and spider vein removal from the legs. During the procedure, a sclerosing solution is injected into the veins through a micro-needle. The tiny needle generally causes very little or no pain. The sclerosing solution causes the vein to blanch (turn white), then gradually disappear. A typical treatment may take 15 to 20 minutes and consists of multiple injections. Sclerotherapy may eliminate the need for an invasive surgical procedure.

The Venous System

The venous system is made up of a network of veins, including:

  • Superficial veins – veins located close to the surface of the skin
  • Deep veins – larger veins located deep in the leg
  • Perforator veins – veins that connect the superficial veins to the deep veins

Venous “Reflux” Disease

Healthy leg veins contain valves that open and close to assist the return of blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when the valves that keep blood flowing out of the legs and back to the heart become damaged or diseased. As a result, vein valves will not close properly, leading to symptoms :

  • Pain
  • Swollen limbs
  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Skin changes and skin ulcers
