Some people are predisposed to having weak valves, putting them at a higher risk of developing varicose and spider veins. People who sit or stand for lengthy periods are more likely to have enlarged veins. Hormonal changes and injuries are also risk factors for spider veins. After evaluating numerous aspects, such as the nature and location of the vein and your medical history, your dermatologist will prescribe the best varicose vein treatment.
HOW TO PREVENT SPIDER AND VARICOSE VEINS?
The following are some suggestions from dermatologists for preventing varicose and spider veins:
-Maintain a healthy body weight by exercising regularly.
-When you are resting, elevate your legs.
-Take breaks from sitting or standing for a prolonged time.
-When you are sitting, do not cross your legs.
Let us know more about Sclerotherapy.
While Sclerotherapy is safe for all skin types, it does have the potential for adverse effects, the majority of which are minor. At the injection location, you may see the following:
-Stinging, soreness, or muscle cramping lasts only a few minutes.
-An elevated red area.
-On the skin, there are brown lines or dots.
-Fine red blood vessel clusters.
-Ulcers that are small and painful.
WHAT ARE SOME OTHER VEIN TREATMENT OPTIONS?
-A diseased vein can be removed using vein ligation and stripping, an outpatient surgical operation. Large varicose veins may necessitate this procedure.
-Dermatologists pioneered ambulatory phlebectomy, which involves making small punctures in the skin to remove a diseased vein. This is another varicose vein treatment method done under a local anesthetic.
-Endovenous laser therapy and radiofrequency ablation are two newer treatments that act from the inside to eradicate the diseased vein.
-EVLT is used to treat varicose veins; however, EVLT is not an option if the vein is twisted.
Varicose veins are treated by closing them and removing them by minor incisions.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER VEIN TREATMENT?
-Following treatment, you may see slow improvement, and it is usual for the area to deteriorate before improving.
-To assist you in achieving the most outstanding outcomes, your dermatologist will provide you with post-treatment advice.
-While you can return to work and most activities the next day, you should avoid strenuous physical activity. After leg vein therapy, you may need to wear compression stockings.
-Following Sclerotherapy, your doctor may advise you to go for daily walks. You must protect your skin from the sun after laser therapy.
After treatment, varicose and spider veins may reappear, or new veins may form in the same region. Make sure to visit the doctor for regular check-ups.
