Vein treatments – this is a topic that leaves me a little squeamish but lets just say I was never destined to be a nurse.
Although it makes me squeamish it is a super serious topic. Spider veins and varicose veins are super common in both men and women.
Now generally people have the removed because they do not like the appearance of the veins but its important to know that varicose veins can cause some health problems so its super important to check in with your doctor on this.
Varicose veins are dark blue or purple and are generally lumpy.
Spider veins are mini versions of varicose veins and appear spidery and close to the skin surface.
The most common treatment for varicose veins and spider veins is sclerotherapy and for bigger veins surgery is often needed.
Sclerotherapy works best for spider veins. For this treatment your physician will inject saline or a chemical solution into the vein which will make the vein will harden and disappear.
The best person to perform this treatment is a dermatologist or a vascular surgeon.
There are also laser treatments that assist in the disappearance of varicose veins as well.
Coming up on The Aesthetic Collective I will be sharing with you all the other treatments that are available to treat veins.
