Many women and men seek treatment each year for vein problems. Several factors such as age, obesity, medical history and even genetics increase the likelihood of developing varicose veins or spider veins. Most vein problems appear in the legs but can also appear in other areas of the body.
Johns Creek Dermatology located north of Atlanta in Johns Creek can assist you in eliminating those aggravating and ugly spider veins in your legs and on your face. During your consultation, they will analyze your vein problem and if they determine that you may have varicose veins, they will recommend a varicose vein specialist.
Johns Creek Dermatology uses Veinwave™ for reduction and elimination of spider veins. The Veinwave™ procedure safely and effectively treats spider veins using microwave energy through a very fine needle. The needle is injected subepidermally without piercing the blood vessel. This treatment works well for spider veins in areas of the body such as the face, arms or ankles. It also works well in areas that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy. Thermocoasgulation is used to heat and close vessels instantly. The entire Veinwave procedure only takes about fifteen minutes and involves no downtime for the patient following treatments. It produces instant results and most return to daily normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Spider veins, particularly those on legs can be treated with sclerotherapy. During the sclerotherapy treatment a sclerosant solution is injected into the affected veins. The solution causes the vein to stick together and shrink. Once this takes place, the body redirects blood to healthy veins and bypasses the abnormal ones. Doctors recommend that patients undergoing this treatment take frequent walks in order to realize the best results following the procedure. You will also be instructed to wear a compression garment for about 2 to 3 weeks following the procedure. Usually more than one treatment is necessary to completely attack and remove all the spider veins in the legs.
The busy lifestyle many people lead today may be a contributing factor to problems with spider veins. Because of the recent advancement in the treatment of these conditions, those who suffer from one of these can find a solution without having to undergo surgery. Veinwave and sclerotherapy procedures are approved by the FDA in the United States. The experienced physicians at Johns Creek Dermatology offer private complimentary consultations for prospective patients considering any procedure. Individualized treatments are customized to meet the special needs of each patient.
