Always looking for options to improve the skin, people with blemishes and other skin issues can commonly give people lower self confidence and complexes. For many, spider veins develop that many people would rather not endure. With the help of sclerotherapy, people have an effective option to treat and diminish them. Today, we at Skin and Body Refinery would like to take the opportunity to further elaborate on sclerotherapy.
Varicose Veins on Legs, Spider Veins on Face & More
Varicose veins appear as large, bulbous veins and can be flesh-toned, blue, or purple in color. These dilated veins are frequently painful and can ache and swell. Legs will feel tired or weak, which can evolve to increase stress on your legs. Spider veins are the tiny blood vessels that form at the skin’s surface. So, named because they look very much like a spider’s web, they are usually red, purple, or blue in color. They do not only develop on the legs, but anywhere on the body, even the face. On the face, they can make people feel self-conscious.
What Causes Varicose & Spider Veins?
Within the blood vessels themselves, these diseased veins develop. Your veins should carry blood back to your heart from other areas of the body. Veins have small valves to prevent blood from flowing back into the veins and to stay on course. When these valves are not properly functioning, the blood flows back into the vein increasing pressure inside the vein. When these valves are not functioning correctly, properly the blood flows back into the vein, which increases pressure inside the vein. This pressure will weaken eventually, causing the swelling and bulging. There are several reasons as to why some people will suffer from these misfunctioning veins; below are a few of the common:
1) Hormonal issues, including pregnancy, menopause, and even puberty among others.
2) A blood clot history.
3) Postmenopausal hormone replacement.
4) Certain garments, like girdles for example, that increase pressure in your abdomen, as well as tumors, or constipation.
6) Genetics from family with a history of Spider and Varicose Veins.
Sclerotherapy Injection Solution
Used for cosmetic reasons, the sclerotherapy procedure improves someone’s legs appearance from these veins. The sclerotherapy not only improves the aesthetics, but is used to relieve discomfort from the burning, aching, swelling, heaviness in the legs, and cramping during the evening hours. To remove the appearance of these small varicose and spider veins, quite a few people use this method that involves injecting a solution called Sclerosant directly into the vein. As the solution causes the abnormal vein to close, the blood is forced to enter healthy veins. After time, the damaged vein is absorbed into body tissue and fades away.
Sclerotherapy is very beneficial to those suffer from either varicose or spider veins anywhere on your body. The professional will likely prescribe procedures that you must follow that include wearing the compression stockings for a directed period of time following the completion of your Sclerotherapy procedure in order to induce healthy blood flow in that area.
