Varicose veins are dilated vessels that become enlarged because of a weakness in the wall of the vein with damaged valves. They are most common in the legs and thighs. Spider vein refers to smaller varicose veins that usually appear in patches close to the skin.
About one half of the population develops them, and mostly women are affected. The exact cause is often uncertain, however, there are some risk factors that include: heredity, pregnancy, hormones, injuries, prolonged standing or sitting, and aging.
Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure used to permanently remove annoying spider and varicose veins. A medication is injected, causing the vein to close off. Ultrasound can guide our treatment, allowing excellent cosmetic results.
