Have you started to notice thin, broken looking veins just below the surface of your skin? These vessels, also known as spider veins, often appear red or blue and appear near the knees and ankles. Spider veins are not medically concerned but often make patients self-conscious and seeking solutions.
Spider veins may appear due to age or when the body takes on new levels of stress such as weight gain, pregnancy or work that requires hours of standing. Dr. Calderon understands that these veins are bothersome to many patients and is happy to offer quick and effective solutions to treat the condition – just in time for beach weather!
Sclerotherapy can be used to treat and eliminate the appearance of spider veins. During the procedure, a tiny needle is used to inject a saline-like substance into the affected vein, causing it to “die” and be absorbed into your surrounding, healthy tissue. Sclerotherapy is pain-free and offers results after just one treatment.
