Spider Veins Treatment: Microsclerotherapy

The colder months are drawing in and your woolly hats, scarfs and gloves are starting to make their way out of the wardrobe. All those extra layers of clothing will have you dreaming of warmer climates - why not take advantage of this chilly time of year and prep your legs for the summer months.

Spider veins are groups of dilated veins that sit close to the surface of the skin. Usually red, blue or purple in colour spider veins are typically found on the legs. Although spider and varicose veins are different, they are often located next to each other and are both common in men and women over the age of 50.Spider veins can be caused by a number of factors such as:
  • Aging
  • History of blood clots
  • Heredity
  • Oral birth control
  • Hormonal changes
  • Pregnancy
  • Standing or sitting for prolonged time
Winter is the ideal time to start the process of perfecting your pins, as multiple treatments may be required to help clear the area.Microscelerotherapy is a procedure designed to improve the appearance of spider veins. The small veins are injected with a solution called a sclerosant, which helps to eliminate these unsightly veins. The procedure is no more painful than plucking a hair and the tiny scratch of the needle may be experienced. Most clients are surprised how painless the procedure is. The number of injections required can vary, depending on the extent and number of spider veins.This simple procedure can have an overwhelming effect on the confidence of patients. With some clients having commented that before the treatment, they have not wanted to expose their legs on holiday or feel they could not wear shorts or a skirt as they are embarrassed.Results from the treatment can be immediate but you may require 2-3 sessions over a few months. As a result, you could be free from unsightly veins and have more confidence to show off your legs!To find out more, contact the clinic today on 0113 282 3300 and speak to one of our specialists.Written for you by: Carla, Face the Future
