Varicose veins and spider veins can be caused due to genetics, obesity, standing or sitting for a long time, weight loss, pregnancy, or certain medications. Sometimes UV rays also cause them. The majority of people suffer from these vein conditions at the age of 50 and above. Besides, women are more likely to have them than men. You may also suffer from tiredness and restlessness because of the affected veins. In severe cases, they cause unbearable pain, discomfort, and burning in the problem site. To help people get rid of these types of veins, dermatologists are offering different treatment options. The treatment, here at Dynamic clinic, is safe, simple, and performed in an out-patient setting. An initial consultation with an expert is needed to choose the most appropriate option for your treatment.
How can you avoid them?
It is better to prevent them from occurring than to deal with them after they have already occurred. You are advised to take the following preventive measures to avoid them,
- Avoid sitting or standing for a long time in one place
- Take proper diet and maintain your body weight
- Walk regularly to have good blood circulation and improved leg strength
- Avoid crossing your legs while sitting
· Laser treatment
If you are not ready to undergo any surgical procedure to eliminate varicose veins or spider veins then laser treatment should be your preferred choice. The dermatologist uses laser to make the veins less prominent. Before performing the actual procedure, the area is numbed with local anesthesia. In this step, a laser device is brought near the problem site to target the veins. The device generates heat that destroys the tissues and eventually, frees the skin from the abnormal vein. This method is very effective for larger varicose veins. Please note that it is not a one-time treatment, you have to take several sessions to discard them completely.
For large and severe varicose veins, doctors recommend surgical options. There are two types of surgeries that you can have to remove your affected veins. These are,
- Ambulatory phlebectomy
- Ligation and stripping

It is a medical procedure that involves the insertion of a special solution directly into the vein. Many dermatologists use saltwater in this method. The injected solution disturbs the lining of the blood vessel and finally makes it to collapse. With time, the collapsed vessel turns into the scar and finally disappears completely after a few months. The treatment is done in an out-patient setting and it takes about 15-20 minutes for its completion. It is minimally invasive, and there is no risk of serious complications and lousy results.
· Radiofrequency treatment
Some doctors use radiofrequency-guided technology in the treatment to make varicose veins & spider veins less prominent. This method is known as Endovenous radio-frequency ablation. Heat is generated from a radiofrequency source which seals off the affected veins. After the veins are sealed, the blood changes its way and starts to flow in the healthy veins. The treatment not only improves the appearance of veins but also eliminates the discomfort and pain that you were experiencing in your legs and arms because of them.
Are the results permanent?
Some spider & varicose vein treatments produce permanent results by sealing off the affected vein permanently but unfortunately, they can redevelop with age. So, you will need to have treatment again to get rid of them.
