Do you suffer from spider veins? Have you wanted to remove them, but don’t know the first step? At the Reno Vein Clinic, we are here to help. Spider veins are traditionally hormonally induced, most often around menstruation and pregnancy. This means that women are the prime sufferer’s, and while men can have small veins that look like spider veins, most of the time they are typically high pressure “blow-outs” from varicose veins. Spider veins grow out of reticular veins, also known as feeder veins. The feeders are a large network of veins usually deeper in the skin, this can make them harder to get to, but it is essential to get to them because they are the root problem to spider veins. To effectively eliminate your spider veins, it is imperative to treat the feeder veins. Just eliminating surface spider veins will not guarantee they do not return. However, by removing the feeder, you are effectively eliminating the source of the spider vein, allowing the area to remain clear and not require additional treatments. The Reno Vein Clinic uses a proven micro-injection procedure called Sclerotherapy. The sclerosant used during the procedure is FDA approved; the appointment is completely outpatient and is only around an hour long. If you have spider veins and you are interested in removing them, it is time you called the Reno Vein Clinic and schedule your consultation today, (775) 329-3100.
