Many women experience spider veins that make them feel self-conscious and not as confident as they would like to feel. Spider veins are characterized by their vibrant red, purple or blue coloring, often in areas such as the calves, thighs, or ankles. There are a number of factors that can play a part in the creation of spider veins such as heredity, fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, shifts in hormones, and lifestyles or occupations that require standing or sitting for prolonged periods of time.
The most common treatment method for treating spider veins is through sclerotherapy. In sclerotherapy therapy the sclerosing solution is injected into the marked veins and eventually breaks down the vein, collapsing it from view. If there is more than one spider vein, multiple injections will be required to achieve the desired results.
