Your age and lifestyle may increase your risk of developing spider veins. While this condition can compromise your appearance, it can also negatively impact other areas of your health and put you at risk for complications like blood clots. The good news is sclerotherapy can be used at our office in Toronto to rid you of these problematic veins.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are dilated veins that are red or blue and appear close to the surface of your skin. They develop primarily on the legs, although some people also develop them on the face or elsewhere on their bodies. They get their name from their appearance, which resembles a spider web or spider legs.
People over the age of 50 are most at risk of developing spider veins. Spider veins cause a host of symptoms that can cause distress and pain. This condition can be treated by cosmetic and medical procedures like sclerotherapy.
What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a cosmetic procedure available at our office in Toronto that reduces or eliminates the appearance of spider veins. It involves the injection of a special solution into the veins themselves to cause irritation in the blood vessels. The vessels collapse, causing the blood to clot and eventually the entire vein’s appearance to disappear.
The procedure is done entirely on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our office in Toronto. The procedure has been around for years and is considered to be very safe. Most people who are in good overall health are good candidates for the procedure.
