Varicose veins can make you feel very self-conscious about your legs. These bulging veins are usually deep purple in color. Varicose veins can cramp and ache, or they may cause numbness in that area. If you have smaller, wispier leg veins, you may have spider veins. This second type is generally less noticeable than the former.
Dr. Rebecca Fitzgerald is a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist with more than two decades of experience. As a result, she knows how to determine the best treatment for leg veins. During your consultation, she can determine if your area of concern is treatable.
Varicose veins that can be treated are usually treated with one of the following:
- Sclerotherapy. This procedure uses an injection of saline solution to reduce the appearance of varicose veins. The effect is not immediate but instead takes form over a few weeks.
- Vbeam laser. This laser addresses the root cause of leg veins: broken blood vessels. The laser energy seals the vessels, which can dramatically reduce the appearance of certain types of leg veins.
