About Your Veins
If you are serious about getting treatment for your unfavorable spider veins, consider contacting our providers at SkinMD. You don't have to live with superficial veins showing on your face and body. Telangiectasia, also known as spider veins, can be created by genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, medications, blood clots, and medical conditions. Spider veins are typically red, blue, or purple and can be easily seen underneath the skin while they branch out on the face and body.
Our Hurst and Weatherford, TX providers perform laser treatments and sclerotherapy (with injections of medications like Asclera®) to minimize or remove visible veins on the face or body. A nonsurgical procedure with no recovery time needed, vein therapies may give you a more even skin tone that you'll want to show off. Make an appointment at SkinMD to get more information about minimally invasive sclerotherapy, plus other skin treatments.
"I saw Karen Sticka and she was AMAZING! She made me feel so relaxed and talked me through everything and made sure I knew what needed to be done vs if I just wanted it done as well as roughly how much it would cost so I wouldn’t be surprised when I checked out! Look forward to many visits to see her!"- M.S. / Facebook / Jul 27, 2019

Sclerotherapy treatments are a good option for men and women who are bothered by small or medium-sized blood vessels that can be seen underneath their skin. Generally, spider veins are most visible on the legs, so they avoid swimsuits, shorts, or any other clothes that do not cover their spider veins. Patients getting sclerotherapy must be in good overall health the day of their procedure to prevent a reaction. Patients should not have a history of blood clots or be pregnant.
Treatment options will be done in a private treatment room within a short time and with limited to no anesthesia.
Alma Harmony XL laser can improve the look and reduce the pigmentation of superficial spider veins with relatively low-energy, short-pulse broadband light through a process called photorejuvenation.
Sclerotherapy treatments will be done in a private treatment room within a short time and with no anesthesia. The blood vessels to be addressed will be marked, and then the overlying skin will be cleaned. A fine needle will be inserted into the vessel so the sclerosing solution can be introduced. After removing the needle, gauze will cover the site of injection to treat any bleeding. The procedure can be repeated to treat all spider veins.
Once you are done with your vein treatment, you can leave our office to continue your daily routine. You may have mild redness, swelling, or bruising in the areas treated, but this will usually fade on its own. Wearing compression garments (on your legs) may be suggested by your provider to help your blood circulation following your procedure for better, faster results. It can take a while for the treatment to show results, but the spider veins should get smaller, become a white color, and then disappear or fade. You may require at least two sessions to get your best results, but many people are happy with the improvements after the first session.
