Spider veins are those small yet unsightly clusters of red, blue, and purple veins that usually appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. In fact, it's estimated that at least half of the adult female population is plagued with this common cosmetic problem.
Did you know that a simple office procedure can treat these bothersome veins? Sclerotherapy is the process that is used to treat spider veins.
This procedure is quick, lasting 15 to 45 minutes, depending on how many veins are treated. It's done in the office with very little discomfort. Using an extremely small needle, the veins are injected with a solution that causes them to scar shut and fade away. You may experience some slight swelling; however, this goes away very quickly.
The results of sclerotherapy for spider veins can vary from patient to patient. A few patients will experience a faint brown coloration from the dissolved blood pigments which will eventually fade away. The solution takes about 4-6 weeks to fade the spider veins. Then, you're ready for those shorts and swim suits!
I loved my entire experience with Dr. Best and his staff. I felt very comfortable and welcome; I am really glad I chose Best Impressions. I would definitely recommend Best Impressions to my family and friends so that they can experience all the great things and attitudes that I did. Dr. Best did a wonderful job and I look great!
