Spider Veins, also known as Telangiectasia, are small dilated blood vessels < 1mm in diameter that are near the surface of the skin. These dilated blood vessels can develop anywhere but usually appear on the face, legs and ankle regions. Spider veins are more prevalent in women than men and are related to the presence of underlying venous SpiderVein1hypertension or varicose veins. Several predisposing risk factors exist including; age, hormones, occupation, pregnancy, and hereditary or congenital factors.
Spider veins and smaller varicose veins are comparable in nature and can be treated similarly. A minimally invasive technique known as Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting medicine into the dilated blood vessels. This allows the vessel to shrink and dissolve over time. For optimal results, multiple Sclerotherapy sessions may be needed as well as treatment of the underlying vascular hypertension. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective method to improve the visual appearance of the legs with minimal pain and recovery.
