for Spider Veins in NYC
Unsightly blue to purple marks on your calves and thighs are common phenomena known as spider veins. They are not typically a cause for medical concern, but they can be a cosmetic nuisance. Wall Street Dermatology offers a highly effective procedure called sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of spider veins.
Sclerotherapy is one of the most efficient and quickest options available for anyone suffering from spider veins. With a few simple treatment sessions, spider veins can be reduced and eliminated.
Sclerotherapy for spider veins has been in use since the 1930s and is considered the first line treatment for spider veins. It successfully reduces or removes spider veins in the majority of patients and is both safe and fast—depending on the number of spider veins targeted; each session will take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour, and involves precise, painless injections into each visible spider vein.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins in and of itself are completely harmless. Though they may appear alarming, rest assured that there are no lasting consequences to having them (aside from its unsightly appearance), and no lasting consequences from removing them (other than eliminating its unsightly appearance).
Spider veins are little more than accessory veins that course closer to the surface of the skin. They often appear as red, blue, or purple marks on the legs or upper abdomen that spread out in a branching pattern. If you have them, chances are you have experienced no more harm than seeing them, so there is little to worry about.
