As vascular doctors, this is a question our patients seeking vein treatments often ask. The short answer is, “No, they won’t come back.” But, they will appear to return!
What do we mean by that? People who develop spider veins do so because they are prone to getting them. That is an undeniable and unfortunate fact. So, when we get rid of the veins using either injection, laser ablation or microphlebectomy, there is still an underlying propensity for the veins to develop. Unfortunately, varicose veins or spider veins are, in large part, genetically determined.
So what can you do? At the New Jersey Vein Institute, we can help.
We Can Eliminate Those Unwanted Veins
By making an appointment at one of our eight vein center locations around New Jersey, you can get an in-depth consultation with one of our top vascular doctors. We can evaluate how to best eliminate those unwanted veins.
Quite often, keeping ahead of the developing spider veins and varicose veins makes the process much more manageable. While the veins that are injected or removed will not come back, newer, smaller veins will develop. Through proper and proactive management, and attacking these veins early on, treatment becomes much easier and results much better.
Through regularly scheduled visits, less solution during injections is needed making the process quicker and easier than the initial treatment session. Most importantly, at the Vein Institute of New Jersey, we will determine if you have an underlying problem that can lead to the development of more varicose and spider veins. Specifically, many veins can develop from poorly functioning valves in the deeper veins in the leg. If this condition exists, it is likely to lead to new varicose veins developing if the underlying problem is not corrected. Rest assured, though, this is not a dangerous or life-threatening situation. However, it is best evaluated by one of our top vascular doctors.
How Do We Evaluate Your Veins?
Using Duplex Ultrasound technology, vascular doctors at The Vein Institute of New Jersey can evaluate your deeper veins to see if they are working properly and determine the status of the valves in the leg veins. This is a simple ultrasound test, which is noninvasive, completely pain-free, and does not involve any radiation. The valves in the veins can be easily imaged to determine their function and, if necessary, we will advise you as to the therapy needed to correct the problem.
While there is little one can do to prevent spider veins from developing due to genetic influences, gravity and hormonal changes, there are things you can do to manage it and improve appearances. Using minimally invasive methods such as sclerotherapy or microphlebectomy for treatment of spider veins can restore the look and feel of your legs!
