Summer Ready Legs with Vein Therapy
- Posted on: Jul 31 2014
Even at the end of July, there is a lot of summer sun left to enjoy. Don’t spend the last weeks of summer hiding your legs from view because of unsightly spider veins. Laser and Mohs Dermatology of New York has treatment options available to visibly reduce the appearance of your spider veins quickly and without pain or discomfort.
Spider veins are small, broken looking veins that are often red or bluish in appearance. They are often found near the surface of the skin around the ankles, knees and thighs. Contrary to more elaborate varicose veins, spider veins are purely cosmetic concerns and not detrimental to your health or circulation.
Spider veins can easily be treated with a therapy known as schlerotherapy. Schlerotherapy works by injecting a small amount of a saline-like solution directly into the spider vein. The saline will cause the vein to immediate stop functioning, which is completely safe for small broken veins of this nature.
Once the vein stops functioning properly, the tissue from the broken vein will be absorbed by the healthy tissue surrounding it. Sometimes this occurs immediately, in some cases is may take several days for the vein to become fully absorbed and to disappear from view.
Schlerotherapy is quick, relatively pain free and an almost immediate fix to your spider veins. Stop hiding your legs and enjoy the rest of summer with vein therapy from Laser and Mohs Dermatology of New York today.
