Spider veins and varicose veins may not be dangerous to your health, but that doesn’t mean you’re not concerned about their presence. Those visible veins can make you feel self-conscious about showing off your legs, arms, or anywhere else they might appear. Whether you want to show off your legs in a dress or just feel more confident about how you look, you’re looking for the best way to get rid of spider veins and varicose veins.
Enter sclerotherapy, a proven and highly effective method for minimizing – and even eliminating – the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins. This FDA-cleared treatment uses a simple and harmless salt solution to “irritate” the offending veins, causing them to close, collapse, and eventually become reabsorbed back into the body.
It sounds scarier than it actually is, but the entire process is actually straightforward, painless, and delivers results in as quick as two months!
The reason why it works so well is because the salt solution is injected directly into the spider and varicose veins. The salt water flushes through the veins, which causes the vein walls to become irritated. When this happens, the vein’s natural response is to close up, thus preventing the blood flow that makes the vein visible on the surface of the skin. As soon as the blood is redirected elsewhere, the vein begins to close in on itself, shriveling up and eventually disappearing altogether.
With a few sclerotherapy injections, most patients are able to see significant clearance; some even report seeing total clearance, meaning the skin appears smooth and flawless again.
