Spider veins can cause self-consciousness in those who have them. They can even cause individuals to avoid wearing certain clothing items. At Associates in Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Golosow offers sclerotherapy and laser ablation for the treatment of spider veins.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are very common and are small red or bluish veins that occur on the thighs, calves, ankles, and even the face. They tend to run in families and occur more commonly in women. The body has an intricate network of blood vessels to carry blood between veins and arteries. Sometimes, these blood vessels can become dilated, resulting in visible spider veins.
How Can Spider Veins be Treated?
Dr. Golosow treats spider veins with sclerotherapy. With sclerotherapy, a sclerosing agent is injected into the veins through a micro-needle. This causes the vein to fade and gradually disappear.
The form of treatment that is best for you can be determined during your consultation with Dr. Golosow. During a consultation, Dr. Golosow will work with you to determine the contributing factors to your spider veins and, as well as discuss your aesthetic goals.
