What Causes the Development of Leg Veins?
Spider veins and varicose veins are two of the most common visible leg veins that can affect patients. Spider veins are small, web-like veins that develop close to the skin’s surface. They often form in conjunction with varicose veins, or larger veins that twist or bulge, pushing up against the surface of the skin.
While almost anyone can develop these unsightly veins as part of the natural process of aging, pregnancy, periodic periods of standing or sitting for extended amounts of time, hormone therapy, and birth control use can increase the chances of their formation.
What Treatments can be used to Address Leg Veins?
When it comes to addressing leg veins, our medical staff takes into account the size, depth, and type of each vein when selecting a treatment option. SkinRenewal of Tulsa currently patients access to two methods of removing these visible veins — sclerotherapy and laser treatments.
Sclerotherapy is currently the gold standard in leg vein therapy. This treatment method can be used to address most leg veins, both large and small, through the administration of a simple injection. This injection contains a sclerosing solution that causes the target vein to collapse in on itself. Once the vein has fully ruptured, it is safely removed from the body through natural processes.
The GentleMax Pro® is ideal for addressing leg veins that are less than two millimeters in size. This quick, easy, and effective laser treatment is entirely non-invasive and brings patients little to no uncomfortable side effects or downtime.
