Spider Vein Removal

Small groups of thread-like purple, red, or blue veins under the skin’s surface on the calves, ankles, and thighs are known as spider veins, a dermatological problem. These were given that name because of their appearance, which sometimes even resembles marble and looks like a spider web. The veins may become apparent in some persons at a young age and not in others until later in life. The spider veins are a minor indication of varicose veins, an underlying condition. These typically show up on the legs, though they can also be seen on the face, hand, or chest. These may be uncomfortable, and depending on how severe they are, they may only be symptomatic or only cosmetic. All age groups of men and women are susceptible to this illness. At Twacha, we treat spider vein removal using the best medical strategy with the help of a skilled dermatologist.

Causes that lead to spider veins

When the valves inside feeder veins fail or become unhealthy, blood flows backward instead of upward toward the heart, causing spider veins to form on the face, hands, or legs.

Among the causes that may contribute to the formation of spider veins are:

  • Variations in hormone levels.
  • Hereditary propensity to this ailment or heredity.
  • Variable body weight.
  • Pregnancy.
  • Extended periods of standing or sitting are involved in certain activities or vocations.

 

How can spider veins be removed?

Some people are treated for spider veins for cosmetic reasons, while others may only need it to get rid of the pain it causes. At Twacha Skin, there are numerous treatment options for removing spider veins.

Prior to beginning any treatment, the patient meets with a dermatologist or vascular medicine specialist for an initial assessment to ascertain whether they are a candidate for the procedure. People who are troubled by the existence of spider veins on any part of their body, who have reasonable expectations and a positive perspective for the spider vein treatment, and who are dedicated to adhering to the doctor’s recommended course of action are suitable candidates for spider vein removal.

Sclerotherapy and Laser therapy are the two most widely used strategies for eliminating spider veins. Both of them are connected to very little downtime and great patient satisfaction.

  •  Sclerotherapy Treatment – Sclerotherapy, a procedure in which a sclerosing solution (often a salt solution) is injected directly into each afflicted vein with a small needle, is the safest, most popular, and comparatively painless way for the eradication of spider veins. As soon as the solution is injected, the blood vessel’s lining becomes inflamed, collapses, and sticks together, causing blood to clot. Scar tissue eventually forms and dissipates. 

The patient should discuss his or her existing drug regimen with the doctor prior to Sclerotherapy because some medications need to be stopped before the procedure. Certain anti-inflammatory medications should be avoided for 48–72 hours prior to and after treatment, according to some specialists. The treatment area must not have any cream or lotion administered.

Following treatment, the patient must be instructed to wear compression hosiery, or the treated area must be covered for a while with elastic Ace wrap, stockings, or compressive tape to apply pressure to the treated veins. The patient must also refrain from hot baths, saunas, or whirlpools, hot compresses, and exposure to the sun for 48 hours following Sclerotherapy. Tepid water and mild soap can be used to keep the injection sites clean.

Notably, pregnant women should not undergo sclerosing therapy, but those on birth control pills may. If the patient has a history of blood clots, the area being treated’s general health and the cause of the clot formation will be taken into consideration while determining eligibility. Additionally, the veins must not be considered for sclerotherapy if they could be used in the future for heart bypass surgery.

  • Spider Vein Removal using Laser – Laser therapy is a non-invasive and non-toxic approach for spider vein removal. In this treatment, a laser is targeted to the spider veins. This intense light beam transmits photons that get absorbed by the hemoglobin present in the RBCs of the blood veins. The heat generated from the laser destroys the unwanted cells and affected blood veins. As a result, the damaged veins shrink and over time get dissolved, thereby fading away the spider veins. This treatment is best suited for facial spider veins, rarely it is used in the case of leg spider veins.

Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications, as well as herbal supplements, must be avoided by the qualified applicant before to treatment because they increase the chance of bleeding. Before the surgery, the patient must refrain from waxing, tanning, or sunbathing for two weeks.

Only a few weeks following the laser treatment may the patient see a real change. It can take several laser treatments. The treated area may appear red or pink for 4 to 8 hours after the laser therapy. In the treated area, there can be a slight tingling feeling that goes away in 4 to 6 hours. Applying cool packs or damp rags can provide relief. Additionally, there may be some edoema that quickly goes away. To heal more quickly and effectively, the patient must:

  • Applying lotion or makeup to the treated area should be avoided for at least 24 hours after the stinging sensation or skin redness has subsided.
  • Apply a quality skin moisturiser to the affected area twice daily until the course of treatment is finished and for at least three months after the last laser session.
