Leg Veins

Leg veins can be an unsightly condition for many people. Factors that promote leg vein development are many and include genetics, hormones, pregnancy, prolonged standing, and age. There are different types of leg veins, classified based on size. The small purple surface veins, some of which appear spider-like, are easily treatable with a procedure called sclerotherapy. During this procedure, a tiny needle is inserted into the vein and a medicine is injected to permanently seal the veins. Multiple sessions may be required for the best results. Although some slightly larger leg veins may also be treated in this fashion, not all leg veins can be treated with this procedure, so it is important to see your dermatologist to determine whether this is the right procedure for you.
