Choosing to get any medical or cosmetic procedure requires careful thought and important decision-making skills. You must be convinced that the treatment comes with more benefits than side effects and that it will be able to impact the quality of your life significantly. If it does not help you overall, then it may not be a good fit for you. Before determining if spider vein treatment is a good choice for you, you must have the answers to the following three questions. Some can be answered on your own, and some require a consultation with a trusted cosmetic practitioner. When you choose to get rid of your spider veins for the right reasons and because the procedure will ultimately benefit you, you will find that you feel confident going in for your procedure and feel happy with your results.
Do You Have Spider Veins?
First, you must be sure that you have spider veins. Spider veins are tiny veins that typically appear in clusters. They are close to the surface of your skin and are blue, purple or red. Although they may be hard to see at first, they will gradually grow more visible over the years. These spider veins are not usually dangerous physically, but they can make you feel quite embarrassed to show off your skin in public.
Second, you must be sure that your visible veins are truly spider veins and not more concerning varicose veins. Varicose veins are much larger and usually bulge from the surface of your skin. Rather than appearing in circular patterns, they appear as twisted ropes. In addition, they can cause significant physical issues, including discomfort and skin irritations.
Are Your Visible Veins Affecting Your Life?
For some, tiny visible veins are meaningless and certainly not problematic. They do not mind living with them. However, for the majority of people, visible veins are embarrassing and reduce confidence. If you think your quality of life could be improved after spider veins treatment, you will most likely be quite happy with the results.
Which Treatment Is Right for You?
Different types of spider veins do well with different types of treatments. For example, spider veins on the face do best with laser treatments, like Excel V, which gradually fade the veins. Spider vein treatment options also include sclerotherapy and VeinGogh.
While not every will want spider vein treatment, it is advisable for many who have visible veins on their legs, faces or elsewhere. Simple treatments are generally comfortable, quick and easy and give you such great results. You will love being able to show off your skin with confidence again.
