The blue or red veins which may be visible on your legs, as you age, are popularly known as varicose veins or spider veins. They generally do not cause any medical harm to your body, but they are quite unsightly. Wearing clothes which reveal your legs can leave you feeling self-conscious if you have this condition. Sclerotherapy can be used to reduce and even eliminate them, leaving your legs healthy and beautiful.
The root cause
Spider veins are most visible on people who have to stand for long periods of time, like teachers and nurses, and they increase with age. They are caused due to increased pressure applied on veins. Exercising your legs with activities like jogging or cycling can reduce this pressure and decrease the possibility of developing visible spider veins.
Treatment of spider veins and varicose veins have become fairly straightforward due to the use of an FDA-approved drug called “Asclera”. It is used to slightly enlarge your blood vessels and block blood flow to the varicose veins. The veins then disintegrate and disappear naturally. As this procedure involves the use of injections, you may experience temporary, but mild, discomfort when it is administered.
This procedure requires expert medical knowledge and experience. Many practicing surgeons specialize in this area, Dr. Gary Motykie being one of them. He is a renowned, board-certified plastic surgeon whose Medical Spa provides the treatment in a comfortable and luxurious environment, located at Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles. The MedSpa consists of a team of expert technicians, who ensure that proper care is taken during the process and they provide a $50 off on the first treatment.
Each Asclera treatment session requires half an hour to one hour. You may have to take multiple appointments for the results to be visible and evaluated. The best results are achieved when the appointments are spaced around a week apart. Laser vein removal treatments show similar efficacy in treating spider veins as Asclera injections do.
Asclera must be injected into the body which would give you a temporary sting. The expertise of the administering team has a huge effect on your level of comfort, which is where the highly skilled staff at Dr. Motykie’s MedSpa comes to your rescue.
After the treatment, it is advisable to avoid sun exposure, strenuous exercise, plane flights and hot tubs for a few days. It would also be a good idea to wear compression or hose stockings for some time to improve results.
The treatment uses the body’s natural mechanisms to get rid of spider veins, the results are visible even after just one session.
