Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers spider vein treatment to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and surrounding areas.
What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Are you tired of unsightly spider veins on your legs or face? Spider vein treatment, also known as sclerotherapy, is a cosmetic procedure that reduces or eliminates these surface vessels by injecting a sclerosing solution directly into a vessel, causing it to slowly fade or disappear.
Also referred to as telangiectasias, spider veins are completely unnecessary for normal body functioning. They can be caused by a number of factors, including hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight gain or prolonged sitting or standing. And unlike varicose veins, they appear as very thin, spider web- or tree-like veins on the thighs, calves, ankles, face or elsewhere on the body.
Dr. Hueneke is a board-certified plastic surgeon who is eager to help you rid your body of these pesky spider veins through Nashville spider vein treatment, Brentwood spider vein treatment or Hendersonville spider vein treatment, and to help you regain your confidence.
How is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?
In Tennessee, spider vein treatment does not require anesthesia. It is a simple procedure that is performed using a bright light or laser directed at the vein as the doctor injects a sclerosing agent into the vein with a tiny needle; each inch of vein requires an injection. This sclerotherapy procedure effectively collapses the vein, making it virtually disappear.
Prior to the procedure, your doctor will likely ask you not to wear any moisturizers, sunscreen or other oils on the day of the treatment.
Typically, spider vein treatments in Nashville, Brentwood and Hendersonville take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes — depending on the size of the treatment area — and are performed in the doctor’s office or outpatient facility.
Am I a Good Candidate for Spider Vein Treatment?
You may be a good candidate for spider vein treatment in TN if you’re bothered by the presence of spider veins on your face, thighs, ankles, calves or elsewhere on the body. The procedure is equally beneficial to both men and women, and it reduces the burning, swelling and aching associated with spider veins. Pregnant or nursing women, as well as anyone with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, blood clots, or cardiac disease, may not be a suitable candidate for Nashville spider vein treatment, Brentwood spider vein treatment or Hendersonville spider vein treatment. Talk with your doctor about your medical history prior to the procedure.
Recovery from Spider Vein Treatment
After your Tennessee spider vein treatment, you can generally resume normal activity immediately as there is little to no downtime. Your surgeon will provide you with a leg compression stocking that you should wear for the first few days, which will help reduce swelling and bruising. While you’re discouraged from sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time (to prevent blood clots), you’ll be encouraged to walk around after the procedure.
And patients report very few side effects following Nashville spider vein treatment, Brentwood spider vein treatment or Hendersonville spider vein treatment, aside from some slight cramping and itching. You’ll be advised to avoid any strenuous activities, sun exposure or hot water for a few days following the procedure, but you’ll be able to return to work immediately.
What are the Typical Results of Spider Vein Treatment?
Your veins should gradually disappear over the course of two to three weeks after the procedure. Once they’re gone, you’re free to show off your sexy, flawless legs once more.
