Spider veins are ugly, small, red and purple veins that are easily visible through the skin. Although small, they have traditionally been very difficult to remove. There are a number of factors that can predispose one to getting spider veins.
Spider Vein Risk Factors Include:
- Jobs that require lots of standing, as seen among nurses, hair stylists, teachers, and others
- Hormonal influences during pregnancy, puberty, and menopause
- The use of birth control
- A prior history of blood clots
At Fort Myers Vein Specialists, we use a combination of sclerotherapy and VeinGogh, a cutting-edge technology, that is proven to remove spider veins instantly and achieve the best possible results.
What Is VeinGogh Vein Treatment?
VeinGogh is the fast, easy way to reliably treat cosmetically unacceptable conditions like telangiectasia and spider veins, usually with less discomfort compared to older therapies. IPL or lasers can be expensive, skin type dependent and have an inherent risk of injury. Compact, portable VeinGogh instantly eliminates the unwanted vessels. “Similar” devices use decade-old technology to deliver questionable results and discomfort, and can have a significant risk of leaving visible micro-scars. VeinGogh delivers outstanding results using unique, proprietary Microburst Technology, which creates an effective, controllable heating of dermal vasculature without significant discomfort or visible damage to the surrounding tissue.
What Is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is the traditional method used to eliminate spider veins and smaller varicose veins. It involves injecting a sclerosant (generally a salt solution) directly into the problem vein. The sclerosant irritates the lining of the vein, causing it to shrink and stick together. Over time, the vessel will be absorbed by the body.
