What is Spider Veins Treatment?

Spider Veins TreatmentSpider Veins Treatment, a medical vein treatment in practice for almost a hundred years, involves injecting a specialized chemical solution into problem veins. 

This safe and sterile formulary causes targeted veins to collapse, so blood can no longer pool in the area. Because these veins are now damaged and no longer in use, blood starts recirculating to healthier veins nearby. 

Over time, your treated spider veins and vascular lesions get absorbed by your body and gradually fade away.

What happens during Spider Veins Treatment?

Your Spider Veins Treatment treatment from Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center is entirely personalized to you and it’s perfectly safe to treat more than one area during a single visit. During your treatment, your provider thoroughly sterilizes your treatment area.

They use a very fine needle to slowly administer the chemical solution directly into unsightly veins. Once your treatment is complete — it takes only a few minutes — you may need to wear either a bandage or a compression stocking to promote healing.

After your Spider Veins Treatment session, your provider at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center counsels you on how to care for the treated area while it’s healing. They’ll let you know how long you need to wear any bandage or compression stocking, if at all, and give you tips on how to avoid developing unsightly veins in the future.

Since Spider Veins Treatment may lead to temporary inflammation during the healing process, you’ll want to avoid sun exposure to the treated areas or apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen regularly. Sun exposure can worsen inflammation and even lead to dark spots.

Is there downtime with Spider Veins Treatment?

It takes 2-3 weeks for the bruising and treated veins to resolve and for the skin to return to normal, but without the spider veins. One of the many reasons Spider Veins Treatment continues to remain at the forefront of modern vein treatments is because you can achieve healthier, more even-toned skin, with a predictable downtime. 

You can easily schedule your Spider Veins Treatment at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center during your lunch hour and return to work and all of your regular activities immediately afterward.
