Plan Ahead for Spider Vein Treatment

Plan Ahead to Treat Spider Veins in AtlantaWe hear it every year:

I’m planning on leaving the Atlanta area for vacation next week, but want to get rid of these ugly spider veins before I go.

Unfortunately, vein treatment something that needs a bit more planning than many people realize. If you hope to rid yourself of spider veins for the summer, now is the time to take action.

In warm climates like Marietta and Atlanta, spider veins are an annoyance. Use long pants to hide problem veins during a hot Georgia summer and you’ll quickly be forced to face the facts: either the spider veins have to go or you’ll have to grow used to showing off the fine blue, red and purple lines that sit just beneath your skin.

How Can I Get Rid of Them?

With the help of an experienced vein specialist, getting rid of spider veins isn’t hard to do. However, this doesn’t mean the veins can be resolved overnight.

One of the best ways to get rid of spider veins is sclerotherapy, in which a specialized solution is injected into the vein. This solution will irritate the lining of the damaged vein, eventually causing blood to reroute to other, healthier veins. Within just a few weeks the vein will completely fade from view without any surgical incisions.

A single treatment session with sclerotherapy can eliminate up to 70 percent of your spider veins in just a few weeks. If the discoloration is still there one month later, another treatment session is recommended. This means you can be spider vein free within as little as two months.

In other words, if you are planning on going on vacation this summer, spring is the best time to take care of those unsightly veins.

Before vein treatment begins, your spider veins will be closely evaluated and you’ll be assessed for more severe vein problems that might be related to your spider veins. If you are pregnant, spider vein treatment will have to wait until after your child is born.

Don’t let spider veins hold you back from showing off your legs this summer. If the small web-like veins are a big problem for you, then plan ahead and take the action necessary to be done with them before the temperature creeps up any higher.
