Spider Vein Treatment at Wall Medi-Spa
Varicose Vein Treatment Options in Shreveport
At The Plastic Surgery Center, we offer customized laser treatment options for varicose veins, also known as spider veins.
Varicose veins, or spider veins, are essentially clusters of purple, blue, or dark red veins that appear on the thigh, calves, and ankles, predominately in women. For some, these will start to show at a younger age, but for most, these begin to really become noticeable after 50.
Varicose veins are more commonly known as “spider veins”. The most common spider vein treatment is usually fairly simple and involves simply injecting a treatment solution directly into the vein. This solution then causes the vein to collapse in size and eventually face in color, as well.
We also offer laser treatments for varicose veins.
Spider veins can start to appear for a variety of reasons, a few of which include:
- Weight Fluctuation
- Prolonged Standing or Prolonged Sitting
Spider vein treatment is an option is you are bothered by the spider veins, and if you agree to following the instructions given by Dr. Wall, and if you have a positive outlook and set realistic goals for your treatment plan.
The treatment for varicose veins varies widely. This is based on the number of treatments that will be required and the method of treatment the patient chooses. The costs associated include post-treatment garments and surgeon’s fee.
When choosing a plastic surgeon for your spider vein treatment, make sure that your plastic surgeon is experienced with the procedure and that you feel comfortable with them.
Spider Vein Consultation for Treatment
During your consultation, your Dr. Forrest Wall will want to discuss any problems that you’ve had in the specific affected area, any surgeries or treatments that have been performed near the affected area. This also includes any previous vein treatments. You will need to know what medications you are on currently as well as any medical conditions, allergies, or treatments.
Dr. Wall will also evaluate your general health along with any preexisting conditions and risks, look at your veins, and discuss the options for your varicose vein treatment with you.
