Facial Vein Treatment

Spider veins are a sign of Venous Insufficiency, which means that the valves in your legs may not be working properly, and if left alone they may continue to get worse. Spider Veins need continuous maintenance and follow up to keep your legs looking and feeling great!

Please remember that although vein disease is treatable, it is not curable.

What to Expect After Spider Vein Treatment

If you are someone who suffers from ugly, irritating and unwanted spider veins, you are not alone. In fact, you are among an estimated 80 million Americans who have spider veins, according to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery

That’s why your decision to have spider vein treatment is such an important first step to enhance your quality of life. This is the case whether you choose to undergo Sclerotherapy or VeinGogh™ treatment from Board-certified vascular surgeon Dr. Joseph Magnant and his team of Physicians and Advanced Providers at Southwest Florida’s  leading vein clinic, Vein Specialists.  

Each of these highly effective procedures used to treat spider veins involves minimal discomfort and a short healing process. To put your mind at ease, we can confidently say that after performing spider vein treatments on thousands of patients, injection sclerotherapy of spider veins is the most effective method of getting rid of spider veins.

The following are things to consider prior to your sclerotherapy treatment for your spider veins: 

You may experience some mild discomfort, bruising or tenderness at the spider vein treatment sites. The discomfort typically subsides within a few days while bruising may take a bit longer.

We recommend that you avoid certain activities such as heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for a week or two after spider vein treatment. This is to prevent any complications and to allow your body to heal. Find out more information about sclerotherapy aftercare.

We recommend that you wear compression stockings for 72 hours after your spider vein treatment. This will help to reduce swelling, improve circulation and achieve the best results.

You will likely see immediate results. However, the full effect of spider vein treatment may take several weeks or even months. The treated veins take time to fade and for the full results of the procedure to be realized.

You will need follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure that your spider vein treatment was effective. Depending on the extent and severity of your spider veins, you may require multiple sessions of spider vein treatment.

Are GROUPON deals a good value?

If a medical practice offers GROUPON deals, please check the fine print. Many inexperienced technicians (not Physicians or Advanced Providers) may be performing Sclerotherapy and we have seen patients who were advised to have more invasive procedures when all they needed was sclerotherapy.

Conversely, there have been other patients who had obvious underlying venous disease who should have had a more detailed evaluation prior to wasting money on their spider veins. Our recommendation is to avoid GROUPON offers and perform your due diligence on the vein practice you are considering to achieve the best results possible.

Spider Vein Recurrence

Spider veins may recur after treatment. To help prevent this, we recommend healthy lifestyle practices such as:

  • Maintaining a Healthy Weight
  • Exercising Regularly
  • Avoiding Prolonged Periods of Sitting or Standing
  • Wearing Compression Stockings/Socks
