Why Should I Remove my Spider Veins in Delray Beach?
Most spider veins are prominent mainly on the thighs and legs. Having them makes many women wear long pants, skirts, and dresses, and avoid wearing shorts or swimsuits in public. Sclerotherapy is a standard procedure to remove spider veins.
It involves a doctor injecting a solution directly into the vein. The number of injections depends on the size and number of veins treated. Treated veins typically fade within a few weeks, and an additional benefit is that there is not any downtime! Many patients return to their normal routine on the same day, but you may be advised by your doctor to avoid strenuous activity for a couple of weeks after the procedure. Sclerotherapy is convenient for people who lead busy lives.
