What Cause Spider Veins:
Spider veins are tiny, damaged veins that may emerge on the legs or face. They are generally not painful or dangerous, but individuals may wish to treat them for cosmetic reasons.
Spider Vein or Varicose Vein, caused by increased pressure in the veins, tend to be appear as you grow older. It may be caused by long hours of standing, hormonal influences, obesity, a history of blood clots, consuming birth control tablets, or even pressure in the abdomen (tumours and constipation).
It develops faster in women than in men and between 30-60% of all adolescents are expected to be affected.
How IV Sclerotherapy Works:
IV Sclerotherapy is conducted in a doctor’s clinic. This method utilizes a highly concentrated saline (salt) solution or a specially formulated liquid solution that is injected directly into the vein, causing the vein to disappear gradually over three to six weeks.
In Dr Chong Clinic, IV Sclerotherapy Treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on the condition.
The procedure begins with cleaning the skin around the targeted veins by our doctor. Then, our doctor will inject the formulated solutions into the damaged vein with a fine needle. The liquid or foam solution causes the walls of the injected vein to seal shut, so blood is redirected to unaffected veins. The injured vein is absorbed by your body over time, making it less noticeable.
You may need up to four sessions/ treatments based on the size and volume of the treated vein or veins.
