Spider Vein Treatments

If you know what it is like to avoid baring your legs out of embarrassment of the cluster of blue or purple veins that show up on your ankles, calves and thighs, you are not alone! Some studies report that as many of half of women have spider veins. For some women, they appear in their 20s. Other women may not see spider veins until they reach their 40s. Luckily, women can now turn to Spider Vein Treatment (sclerotherapy) to combat these unsightly veins.

What are spider vein treatments? It is usually an outpatient procedure of two sessions which will most likely last under an hour each. During spider vein treatment, sclerosing solution is injected into each vein which causes it to collapse and fade.
