What are Spider Veins?

Spider veins tend to be more visible on women than on men. As women approach middle age, it is common that they begin to see small clusters of blue and purple on the lower extremities such as the ankles or around the knees. While they are often a natural part of aging, they can lead to decreased confidence in your appearance.

There are several reasons for the development of spider and varicose veins, including:



  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Lifestyle habits (many of us spend a good portion of our day sitting)
  • Variations in hormones
  • Changes in weight

What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are very similar to spider veins but have some key differences. They are often larger and raised, giving a swollen appearance that twists and turns.

They have similar causes, with genetics or aging being common factors. Veins become damaged and allow blood to travel in the wrong direction. The good news is that sclerotherapy can treat work as both spider and varicose vein removal.

What is Sclerotherapy? Spider and Varicose Vein Removal

Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical vein treatment that targets unwanted veins with a sclerosing solution. When injected into individual veins with a tiny needle, it causes their collapse. For this spider and varicose vein removal treatment, you don’t need anesthesia or lengthy downtime.

When you visit an experienced dermatologist, you can have a safe and quick treatment. If you want effective spider vein removal and varicose vein removal in Tampa, look no further. Dr. Lombardi has helped countless patients deal with unwanted veins. The next time you go out in shorts, you will be excited to wear shorts and show off your skin.

Over the following weeks, treated veins will close and become less and less visible until they completely disappear forever. The blood that once flowed through these veins is redirected to nearby healthy veins.

In most cases, treatment takes less than an hour. Depending on how many veins we are treating, we may complete the process in under 15 minutes.

Results and Recovery

Since sclerotherapy is non-surgical, you can return to your usual routine immediately. You don’t need to worry about downtime or missing work as you would with surgical treatments. It is not only effective but the most convenient spider and varicose vein removal option around. A treatment session can fit into even the busiest of schedules without interrupting your life.

Following injections, patients may notice slight redness and itching in the treatment area. These side effects, if they do occur, tend to fade very quickly. Another potential side effect is bruising. This may last a week or two. However, it will also fade with time and is a normal reaction to the treatment.

If you have any concerns, Dr. Lombardi can examine the sites and provide feedback on your results. His goal is to keep you comfortable and confident every step of the way.

As the weeks pass after treatment, you should see significant improvement in your veins. After several weeks have passed, they should be gone entirely. Schedule a consultation to learn more about your spider vein removal and varicose vein removal options.
