At Carr Dermatology, we know how important it is to look and feel your best. When problems such as spider veins affect the legs, face, or other areas of the body, it can cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Instead of just accepting their appearance, Sugar Land, TX area patients can seek treatment with our team.
Treatment of spider veins
Spider veins are unsightly blue and purple veins that web out across the skin. They are blood veins that are very close to the skin’s surface. While harmless, they may cause individuals to be embarrassed about their appearance. With treatment, most patients can kiss spider veins goodbye! Below are the two treatment options available for patients at Carr Dermatology:
• Sclerotherapy – sclerotherapy is a traditional method of dealing with spider veins. It involves the injection of a sclerosing gel into the veins to help close them up and redirect blood flow to healthier veins. This method has been used for decades and is still one of the most effective and reliable ways to address spider and varicose veins.
• Laser vein therapy – lasers continue to grow in popularity in all areas of medicine, including dermatology. Laser light can penetrate deep into the skin and can break down spider veins quickly and easily in a non-invasive manner.
Which treatment is right for me?
During a consultation appointment, Dr. Pamela Carr will provide a thorough evaluation and diagnosis of the patient’s concerns. After this, she will discuss the two methods of treatment available, and may make recommendations based on the patient’s budget, severity of spider veins, and their personal preferences. There is no “one size fits all” option, which is why we offer the two treatments to our patients.
