Eliminating spider veins in Houston is possible with a qualified cosmetic surgeon. There are a couple of methods that have shown great results. Sclerotherapy in Houston and AFT laser treatments get rid of unsightly spider veins and are both safe and effective. There are differences between the two treatments that woman can learn about to help them determine which one they would prefer to have done. Their cosmetic surgeon is also available to help determine which  treatment will work better on them.

Get Rid of Spider Veins with Sclerotherapy

Spider veins are like varicose veins but smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. They are caused by the backup of blood, hormone changes, injuries, and sun exposure. They are more common in women and age, medical history, pregnancy, obesity, and lack of movement can all increase the risk of getting spider veins. While they are rarely a serious medical condition, women often want them gone. A Houston medspa has the equipment needed to get rid of spider veins with Sclerotherapy. With this procedure, the veins are injected with a pharmaceutical sclerosing solution that closes the “feeder veins” under the skin. There is little to no discomfort or downtime associated with this method. Multiple sessions may be needed and are spread four weeks apart.

AFT Laser Treatments Successfully Eliminate Spider Veins

Another way to get rid of spider veins is by AFT laser treatments. It is a non-invasive procedure that heats up the blood vessels to collapse them without damaging any surrounding tissue. This method can get rid of superficial and deep telangiectasias. This is a very effective way to eliminate spider veins that many women have chosen. Anyone that is interested in AFT laser treatment or Sclerotherapy can speak with a Houston plastic surgeon to determine which method will work best for their spider veins. Either way, women can finally get rid of their ugly spider veins and have beautiful legs.
