Whether these visible reddish-blue, small veins appear on lower and upper thighs, they – in most case – disturb our aesthetic sensitivity. They are small, superficial, dilated vessels, but they are not burst. Even if such spider veins appear, they do not necessarily mean vein weakness or the beginning development of varicose veins.
If cosmetic correction is desired, spider veins can be treated and removed by applying micro foam (foam sclerotherapy). That means that foamed alcohol which irritates the vascular walls is injected into the vessels by means of the finest of needles. As a result, an inflammation develops and the vascular walls stick together so that they are no longer supplied and are no longer visible. This method of removing spider veins has been standard in our practice for many years. We achieve better and more sustainable results than with a spider vein laser.
Only on the day of treatment you should avoid sports activities such as hot baths, sauna, etc. It is proven that compression therapy with bandages or stockings does not necessarily lead to better results and is no longer needed nowadays.
