Denver’s Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Tanya Atagi reports that many people suffer from unsightly spider veins. In fact, she says, many feel the need to cover their legs, even in the warmer weather. However, far from being unusual, at least half of all women and men are bothered by this common cosmetic problem. Some notice spider veins in their early 20s, while others may not see them until they reach their 40s.
A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including heredity, pregnancy, hormonal shifts, weight gain, or regular, prolonged sitting or standing.
Fortunately, sclerotherapy at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Atagi Skin Aesthetics can make a dramatic improvement in the appearance of spider veins. Sclerotherapy uses a saline solution that is injected into the affected veins, which then collapse and fade from view. Most patients can expect to receive an injection for every inch of treated vein. And typically, it can take two or three visits to our office before the veins completely vanish.
