Spider Veins Sclerotherapy

VeinGogh explained by Dr Omar Hamdallah

Spider veins (spider capillaries or venous capillaries) are health problems that have a negative impact on the appearance of the legs and are often not harmful, but in some cases, there might be a problem in the veins and may lead to the occurrence of varicose veins.

Telangiectasias, or spider veins, affect capillaries, which are the smallest blood vessels in the body, and are likely to appear on the legs or face, so they look like a spider’s web, either in blue or red color.

Many people with varicose veins complain of pain, described as pain or cramping in the affected area, and other common symptoms include; Fatigue, restlessness, burning, throbbing, tingling, or heaviness in the affected area. But if you have spider veins without internal varicose veins, the symptoms, if any, are slight, such as itching and burning.

Causes of spider veins include pregnancy, obesity, congenital anomalies, and internal varicose veins.

Examination of the veins of the legs by Doppler ultra-sound is very important to ensure that there is no reflux of the venous bloodstream, which must be treated first. If venous embolism is not treated, treatment of spider veins alone may lead to a very high recurrence rate.

Treatment methods:

Venous sclerotherapy: It is the injection of a special drug inside the veins, which leads to damage and closure, and it is done in the clinic in sessions and requires several sessions most of the time.

VeinGogh: The most advanced method for removing spider veins, which uses the precise thermal frequency technique. Most of the time needs one session to get rid of veins in a specific area. This method guarantees the best cosmetic results.
