HELPING YOU LOVE YOUR LEGS AGAIN
Spider veins are discolored lines which appear right beneath the surface of the skin. They are most commonly found on the legs and occur as a result of pooling blood, caused by damaged or weakened vein valves. At Premier Vein & Vascular Center, we offer Katy vascular treatment for this condition to help you experience relief. Contact our vein experts today for a consultation.
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT FACTORS WHICH MAY CAUSE SPIDER VEINS, INCLUDING:
- Hormonal changes
- Physical injury
- Poor circulation
Spider veins can be caused by the backup of blood. They can also be caused by exposure to the sun and injuries.
SPIDER VEIN TREATMENT
The treatment options for this condition include sclerotherapy, which uses an injection to collapse spider veins. The same vein may need to be treated more than once. Treatments are usually done every 4 to 6 weeks. You may be asked to wear gradient compression stockings after sclerotherapy to help with healing and decrease swelling. This treatment is very effective when done correctly. With 15 years of experience, we can provide you with a thorough examination to determine the state of your condition and which option is most appropriate for you.
