Whether it’s due to age, genetics, fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, or the pressure of a demanding job, millions of people are susceptible to venous diseases that affect both their daily comfort as well as their self-image. Venous deficiencies tend to show up in the form of spider veins or varicose veins as the blood struggles to flow through damaged valves.
There’s no absolute cause behind varicose veins and spider veins, and no sure way to prevent them. Venous disease is generally hereditary, so those who have a family history of vein disease are likely to be affected themselves. Carrying significant amounts of extra weight can also put pressure on the legs causing the veins and blood flow to struggle.
There are many treatment options available to those suffering from the discomfort and embarrassment associated with spider veins and varicose veins. Ultrasound technology has made it possible for Dr. Seiger, of the Skin and Veins Center, to target affected veins and shrink the damaged vessels with ease. Lasers are also used to direct bursts of light into damaged veins to collapse them completely. Patients will experience minimal discomfort, but nothing intense.
Sclerotherapy is another form of vein treatment that produces admirable before and after vein treatment results. A foam-like agent is injected into affected veins, which cause the walls of the vein to swell and stick together, thereby blocking off the vein so that nearby, fully functioning veins can take over the flow of blood.
Before and after vein treatment results often showcase dramatic improvement as legs that were once overtaken by bulging, blue veins have been transformed into much smoother, younger looking legs. In seeking your own before and after vein treatment results, the best choice you can make is to contact Dr. Seiger at the Skin and Veins Center. He can advise you on the proper procedure to consider for treating your spider veins or varicose veins properly and effectively.
