For many people, the concerns of varicose and spider veins can be a primarily cosmetic concern. While issues with circulation and underlying health issues can impact the appearance of these blemishes, varicose and spider veins are not always related to illness. This also means that nearly anyone can experience the appearance of these prominent discolorations, and reducing their impact may involve a number of methods.
It can be important to understand the differences and similarities of varicosities and spider veins in order to also comprehend how different modalities of vein care may be applied. At Sutton Place Laser Vein Care, one of our larger services next to treatments includes consulting with clients in order to determine the most effective process of remediation for individual conditions.
The Size And Depth Of The Problem
Spider veins tend to be the result of stretched or burst surface capillaries, although these can also result in deeper and twisting vein issues. Varicose veins are generally larger and deeper vessels that have stretched and now protrude beneath the surface of the skin. While these problems do tend to involve deeper veins, varicosities on the hands and feet may still be considered more of a surface presentation.
As a result, we conduct consultations with all of our patients in order to determine the extent of the problem and the best approach for treatment. At this stage, the use of diagnostics is highly effective in uncovering varicosities that may not yet be visible, but may still be forming under the deeper layers of the epidermis.
As the size and the depth of the vein condition is uncovered, it also allows us to determine the methods that will offer our clients the greatest relief. Since not all vein remediation is an outright removal, there are a number of outpatient therapies that can apply to different cases.
Finding The Correct Treatment
Although both spider veins and surface varicosities can be treated with sclerotherapy, ablation and removal of parts of the vein may also be a consideration. This can be dependent upon the extent of the condition, but also on the preferences of our clients. After a thorough evaluation of all the pertinent factors, we strive to work with our clients to find the most effective treatment that will also suit their lifestyle.
The first step to finding the proper type of vein care does include contacting Sutton Place Laser Vein Care to schedule a consultation. Patients will find that the majority of our procedures are minimally invasive, and that only minor recovery is required in most cases. This means that caring for your veins and eliminating blemishes caused by spider veins and varicosities is always a definite possibility that can also fit your lifestyle demands.
