Want to learn more about spider veins from your Winston Salem, Thomasville, and Kernersville, NC, dermatologist?
Dermatology deals with skin issues, like spider veins. Spider veins are tiny purple, red or blue web-like lines that appear anywhere on the body, but most often on legs.
Spider veins aren't the prettiest sight but they don't actually cause serious bodily harm. People do, however, experience aching, burning, or leg cramping. Women are more likely than men to develop spider veins but there are other risk factors to consider:
- Being on your feet all day
- Hormonal changes
- Traumatic injuries
- Prior leg surgeries
How do you treat spider veins?
Your Winston Salem, Thomasville and Kernersville dermatologist can remove spider veins using Sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a solution that is injected into the vein so that it collapses and is reabsorbed by the body.
Consult your dermatologists at Westgate Dermatology and Laser Center in Winston-Salem, Thomasville, and Kernersville, NC, if you are dealing with spider veins. Call today to schedule an appointment. Please Note: Sclerotherapy treatments are done at our Winston-Salem ofiice.
