If you suffer from unsightly varicose or spider veins, you know how frustrating they can be. No matter how you try to hide them, the blue, red and purple webs remain. What causes these veins is debatable, but heredity, hormonal changes, sun exposure, and injuries are the main culprits. Despite the cause of these unpleasant veins, they are rarely a serious health risk and become more of a cosmetic concern. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta offers various spider and varicose vein treatments at the Atlanta Center for Veins.
Sclerotherapy vein removal is a method we commonly use to treat veins.
A “sclerosing agent” is injected into the vein, shrinking the appearance of the vessel(s). Patients typically require one to five sclerotherapy treatments before noticing complete vein removal, but we can modify a specific treatment plan specifically for you during a consultation, once we determine the extent of your unwanted veins.
If spider veins are your main concern, you may also benefit from our Veinwave™ vein elimination treatment. Veinwave™ is one of the newest skin technologies FDA approved for vein elimination. Using heat and ultra fine needles, Veinwave™ is minimally invasive, only penetrating the top layers of skin. Patients typically see immediate results, but those with more significant veins may benefit from two sessions with our vein removal specialist.
Lasers, like the ones that eliminate age spots, birthmarks, etc. at the Laser Institute of Georgia, can also remove spider and varicose veins. Our GentleLase laser technologies and Foto Facial® IPL treatment can all eliminate unwanted veins. We will choose the best laser technology to effectively shrink unwanted veins on the face, neck, hands, and legs without damaging the surrounding skin. For varicose veins, laser light is emitted through a tube inserted into the targeted vessel that gradually shrinks the vein. Most laser vein removal patients see results in one to five treatments.
