Spider and varicose veins
Spider veins are small broken or dilated blood vessels that appear close to the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that are typicallyfoundon the legs.
There are several options available for the treatment of spider and varicose veins, including Sclerotherapy and Veinwave.
Sclerotherapy has been the traditional treatment for spider and varicose veins for many years. It involves the injection of a sclerosing solution into the affected vein, using a very fine needle. The solution irritates the lining of the vein, and causes it to collapse. The vein is reabsorbed by the body over the following weeks, and eventually disappears from view.
Sclerotherapy can be used to treat veins on the face and body, but is not normally recommended for small facial veins. These smaller spider veins can be effectively treated with Veinwave.
Veinwave uses thermocoagulation to heat and destroy the spider veins. During treatment a very tiny needle is used to deliver pulses of radiofrequency (RF) energy to the veins. The RF energycloses down the veins, and then they gradually fade away.
Veinwave is a virtually painless procedure that can be used to eliminate spider veins on the face and body.
