If you suffer from varicose veins or are concerned about the appearance of spider veins, treatment options include:
Endoscopic Vein Surgery or Vein Litigation: This surgical procedure is often used for severe cases of varicose veins. The procedure involves tying shut and removing the veins through small cuts in your skin. The doctor uses a thin instrument equipped with a camera to navigate through the vein. The surgical device or endoscope is used to suture the vein from inside. The aesthetic surgery is done with general anaesthesia but does not require to spend the night at the clinic. The patient can return to normal activities after a couple of weeks.
Sclerotherapy: In this aesthetic procedure, your doctor injects the veins with a solution that closes up those veins, causing the blood to reroute through healthier veins. After only a few days, the treated varicose veins start to vanish. If the vein is big it may need to be injected more than once however sclerotherapy is usually very effective if done correctly. Sclerotherapy is an ambulatory procedure and it does not require anaesthesia. Potential side effects include temporary swelling and itching.
Laser therapy: Laser therapy works by sending moderate bursts of light into the vein which results in making the vein slowly vanish. This procedure is totally non-invasive, however laser works only for superficial for spider veins. In case of large varicose veins, sclerotherapy or vein surgery is more effective. After treatment, blood vessels gradually fade over several months. In some cases it is necessary to repeat the treatment in order to completely get rid of spider veins.
