Can spider veins be dangerous?

Similar to varicose veins, spider veins appear when the valves in the leg break. However, spider veins look very different from varicose veins and are much smaller in size. Moreover, varicose veins could also cause severe health conditions including, skin ulcers, blood clots, vein thrombosis (DVT). Spider veins, on the other hand, are not dangerous and are caused mainly due to venous insufficiency.

Who are at risk of getting spider veins?

Typically, the chances of spider veins are higher in women and adults over 45 years of age. Other individuals at an increased risk for spider veins include:

1. Pregnant women

2. Individuals who stand for an extended period (teachers, nurses, etc.)

3. Individuals who have a sedentary lifestyle

4. Individuals with obesity and chronic weight gain

Is the spider vein treatment permanent?

Karishma Vein Clinic we adopt sclerotherapy to get rid of spider veins effectively. The procedure is highly safe, painless, and a minimally invasive. In this technique, a sterile solution is injected in the veins which cause the spider veins to shrink. After the vein is closed down, the blood flow is redirected and spider veins disappear.

In most cases, the treatment offers permanent results. However, hereditary and lifestyle factors could cause spider veins to emerge once again. Apart from the factors mentioned above, in a majority of the cases, most of our patients have spider vein-free legs for several years after the treatment.

After how long do spider veins disappear?

At Karishma Vein Clinic, we use sclerotherapy which is also one of the most effective ways to treat spider veins. Typically, the procedure lasts for 30-60 minutes, and one can resume normal activities immediately. One can expect a few bumps and redness in the legs post treatment which can is seen for around 2-4 hours post-treatment.

Post the sclerotherapy treatment; spider veins tend to disappear gradually after two to six weeks. Initially, they fade to a light shade of red which eventually disappears after a few months. If the size of the veins is larger than the usual, you may require two or more sclerotherapy sessions.
