Spider Vein Treatment in Asheville, North Carolina
Get rid of your twisted, unsightly spider veins.
In the vast majority of cases, spider veins are only cosmetic — but many people feel quite self-conscious about them. Spider veins are common, but certain factors increase your risk, such as:
- Sun damage
- Long periods of sitting or standing
- Hormone replacement therapy
- Birth control pills
Sometimes spider veins can involve irritating symptoms.
It can sometimes be difficult to notice spider veins because they typically lack symptoms, and for that reason, their treatment generally isn’t covered by insurance. However, sometimes spider veins can produce symptoms similar to varicose veins, namely:
- “Heaviness” in the legs
- Leg tiredness
- Leg cramps
Solving your spider vein problem with sclerotherapy in Asheville, North Carolina.
Sclerotherapy involves injecting a “sclerosant” or “sclerosing agent” directly into your spider veins. This medication irritates the veins, causing them to close and disappear. Sclerotherapy is an in-office procedure that requires no anesthetic. You’ll only feel slight discomfort from the pinprick of the needle, and your spider veins will start to noticeably improve in about 3-6 weeks after sclerotherapy. We recommend you wait at least four weeks between treatment sessions.
