Spider veins can be caused by a number of factors, including poor health, genetics and even restricted blood flow to the legs. These tiny red little veins can cover small or large areas of the legs, making it somewhat embarrassing to wear shorts or short skirts in the summer. For those ladies who would love to have beach ready legs this summer, take a look at some of your spider vein removal options that can give you the smooth and pretty legs you want.
Mariposa MedSpa in Oklahoma City and Edmond, offers spider vein treatments to help rid you of unsightly spider and varicose veins. Most patients will require a series of treatments to see full results, and throughout the treatment process the treatment area must remain out of direct sunlight. For those reasons, now is the best time to start your vein treatments, so you have smooth, sexy legs just in time for beach season! Contact Mariposa MedSpa today to book your appointment.
Sclerotherapy is one of the tried and true methods that can help remove the appearance of spider veins. This procedure uses an injectable chemical that will help collapse the veins and they will eventually get tiny and disappear or at least fade to near invisibility. Although this procedure is considered only minimally invasive, it does have some recovery time. Depending on the severity of the vein issue, it could be a few days or up to six weeks.
Laser therapy may also be an option as well. Again, the severity of your spider veins often regulates how effective non-invasive or minimally invasive these procedures need to be. The more severe the veins, the more invasive the treatment will likely need to be. However, laser therapy does have the added advantage in that you can often have many and multiple treatments for your spider veins without negative affect. This means that in some cases of more severe spider veins, you may still be a candidate for spider vein treatment.
As the summer months come closer, remember that any treatment option will require some recovery time, and you won’t be able to have instantly smooth legs. To that end, be sure to start your treatment options as early as possible. This will ensure that you are both back on your feet and that your legs will look great as soon as shorts weather rolls back around.
