Varicose veins are small- found on the legs, calves, and feet are a common concern among our patients. These “spider veins” can be problematic and painful, not to mention cosmetically complicated.
Fortunately, we offer Sclerotherapy in Washington DC. Our specialized treatments can bring an end to this aesthetic or functional vein problem.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting very small and concentrated amounts of a chemical irritant into the veins, which then cause the vein to clot, scar, and disappear from sight.
Treatments take anywhere from 10 or 15 minutes to 45 minutes, depending on the number and complexity of veins being treated.
What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are large blue, often time dark and purple veins. They rise from the skin and many of the times they have a cord-like appearance. The veins may twist or bulge out from your legs and skin. Varicose veins are found most frequently on the legs.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are very small and very fine red or blue veins. They are superficially visible and closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins.
They can look like a thin red line, tree branches or similar to a spider web. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face and may cover a small or large area.
