Vein Treatment Q & A
What are vein treatments?
Vein treatments at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology get rid of damaged, visible veins that can appear on your face, legs, and other areas. These treatments make unsightly veins disappear to give you clearer, younger-looking skin. Adult and Pediatric Dermatology offers a variety of solutions for varicose and spider veins.
Why should I choose vein treatments?
If you have visible varicose or spider veins, vein treatment at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology is for you. Diseased veins can cause:
- Blue or purple veins
- Twisted, cordlike veins
- Bulging veins
- Aching, painful, or burning veins
- Skin discoloration
- Pain when standing or sitting
- Itching skin
Vein treatments destroy the damaged veins, sealing them closed so that they disappear over time. This causes blood flow to reroute to healthier veins.
What are the risk factors for vein diseases?
Varicose and spider veins can happen to anyone, but the following things increase your risk of developing them:
- Older age
- Being a woman
- Standing or sitting for long periods
- Family history of vein problems
Adopting healthy habits reduces your chance of getting varicose and spider veins. Eat nutritious foods, get regular exercise, maintain a healthy weight, and avoid standing or sitting in the same position for long periods. Change your body positions often.
Is vein treatment right for me?
The expert-trained dermatologists at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology let you know if you’re a candidate for vein treatment after reviewing your medical history, completing a physical exam, and discussing your desired outcome. They might recommend a vascular ultrasound to get a better picture of the health of your veins.
What are common vein treatments?
Some of the many vein treatments available at Adult and Pediatric Dermatology include:
Wearing compression stockings reduces diseased veins and the risk of future varicose and spider veins.
