What are spider veins ?
Before Process Vein removal take a look around Veins. Spider veins, commonly found on the face and legs, are caused by the dilation of a small group of veins near the skin’s surface. They often look like red or purple sunbursts or web patterns and are more common in women.
What are varicose veins ?
Varicose veins are swollen or enlarged veins. The veins have enlarged due to a weakening or damage in the vein valves. Located deeper in the skin than spider veins, they may appear raised, bulging, or twisted, and often are blue, red, or flesh colored.
Varicose veins can be serious because they may be painful, or associated with the development of one or more of the following conditions:
Phlebitis : Inflammation of the vein.
Thromboses : This occurs when blood clots form in the enlarged vein.
Venous stasis ulcers : An ulcer is formed when there is not proper drainage in the enlarged vein.
Vein Removal options available at Pure Bella
Compression therapy : Wearing compression stocking can help the symptoms of varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy : This procedure involves the injection of a concentrated saline or specially-developed solution into the spider or small varicose vein. The solution irritates the inside of the vein and over time the vein will collapse and fade. Healthier blood vessels located nearby absorb the blood flow of the collapsed vein.
Ambulatory phlebectomy : Ambulatory phlebectomy involves the removal of the vein by tiny punctures or incisions along the path of the enlarged vein. Through these tiny holes, the surgeon uses a surgical hook to remove the varicose vein.
Electrodesiccation :This procedure involves the sealing of the veins with the use of an electrical current.
Laser surgery and intense pulsed light therapy : Abnormal veins are destroyed by high-intensity laser beams or intense pulsating light.
Surgical ligation and stripping : This procedure involves the surgeon making an incision in the skin and removing or tying off the blood vessel. This procedure is done for severe cases of varicose veins.
