One out of every two people in the United States is affected by varicose veins or “spider veins.” These unsightly veins typically occur on the inside of your legs and/or the backs of your calves. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that have a dark purplish-blue color. Spider veins, on the other hand, are smaller than varicose veins and can have either a red or blue color. They get their name from the spider-web appearance they cause, and can be found in more areas of the body than just your legs.
Vein therapy – medically termed “sclerotherapy” – is an injection-based treatment for varicose veins and spider veins that is a safe alternative to laser vein treatment. During a schlerotherapy procedure, one of our aestheticians will inject a chemical solution into the smaller vessels around your varicose/spider veins, causing them to collapse. Once this occurs, your body will “absorb” the veins back into a deeper layer, removing them from sight and restoring circulation in the area.
If the appearance of spider veins or varicose veins has begun to interfere with your self-image, our experienced Denver vein therapy team can help you choose the right vein therapy treatment for your specific needs.
