Spider Veins and Sclerotherapy

The concept of varicose disease and medicine.Spider veins are a visual nuisance. Rarely painful at all, spider veins constitute a major pain when putting on shorts, a sun dress, or a swimsuit. Considering things can get pretty toasty here in Fort Worth and Dallas, who wants to cover up to hide their spider veins?

Fort Worth Vein Center uses visually guided foam sclerotherapy to make your spider veins disappear.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, red, purple or blue veins just below the skin surface that become swollen with stagnant blood causing them to be more prominent and visible on the skin surface.

Who Gets Spider Veins?

If you’re over 50, you have some spider veins.  Many things can cause spider veins, however, heredity, pregnancy, certain occupations that require prolonged standing or sitting, age, obesity and a prior injury or trauma are the most common causes.

Visually Guided Foam Sclerotherapy

The “gold standard” for treating spider veins is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is the injection of a solution into your vein that irritates the lining of your spider vein blood vessel. This causes the spider vein to die, allowing your body to then absorb the dead spider vein(s).
Sclerotherapy is the best treatment available for your spider veins because the injected solution travels through the weeds and into the roots, treating not only the spider veins you see, but also the “roots” (veins) as well.
Fort Worth Vein Center’s secret for world-class cosmetic results is foam sclerotherapy. Liquid sclerotherapy is more commonly performed, however, foam allows us to eliminate your spider veins more effectively, with less needle-sticks, and less treatment sessions than other treatment centers.
