Sclerotherapy for Veins
- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
Facial vascular lesions often affect our self-esteem, especially if they are quite dark. They often seem to appear in prominent places where they attract attention: our noses, lips, fingers, or near our eyes are common places for these annoying little blemishes to make themselves known. In the past, you didn’t have a lot of options. In fact, your treatment option would be makeup, which could be used to cover up any blemish you may have. Thankfully, we have options now to help. Keep reading to learn more about Telangiectasia, and how you can banish them with our help.
What are they?
Telangiectasia are blood vessels that are red, purple, or blue and appear on the surface of the skin, many times on the face, upper chest, and neck. They are similar to spider veins, which appear on the legs as we get a little bit older. The veins in question are not important to bodily function, so removal of them can be a great option to consider, especially if they affect your self esteem.
Where do they come from?
Telangiectasia may come from many different things. Genetics reveal a predisposition toward Telangiectasia for some patients, and pregnancy may also encourage them to appear. This is because your body changes during pregnancy, and there’s more stress put on the veins.
Telangiectasia may also come from environmental factors such as exposure to sun and wind, surgical incisions, skin trauma, use of medications that may widen blood vessels, or even excessive alcohol use have all been well-documented as linked to little visible veins.
How do I treat them?
Unfortunately, there are not many options to treat visible veins if you are interested in topical treatments. Sclerotherapy has been very effective in removing these unsightly veins, restoring a complexion that is clear and allows you to be seen for who you are.
Sclerotherapy is a proven treatment that features an injection of a solution (usually saline) directly into the problematic vein. This solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse.
