How Microphlebectomy Can Help You Banish Spider Veins Before Summer

Microphlebectomy Banish Spider Veins Premier Vein Clinic

Varicose veins are a common condition, particularly if you have a job that requires plenty of time on your feet. Usually, though, it’s not a harmful condition — it’s simply unsightly. It can, however, cause discomfort or pain in some. Larger veins can be bulging and blue while smaller blood vessels resemble red versions of spider webs wandering over your legs. Both varicose and spider veins happen for the same reason, and whether your veins are causing you discomfort or simply detracting from your appearance, microphlebectomy may be the minimally invasive answer to your condition.

A pressure situation

Veins have a difficult job to do. Returning blood to the heart and lungs is no easy matter, particular when working against gravity from your feet on up. To help prevent backflow, veins have tiny valves along their length, permitting the forward progress of blood, but stopping backward motion.

As you get older, vein tissue starts to deteriorate, and if you have certain risk factors, these valves may start to fail, with blood pooling and stretching veins, resulting in the bulging and twisted appearance associated with varicose veins.

Smaller spider veins develop for the same reason, and while you might not see bulging on the scale of larger veins, the webs of red blood vessels aren’t visually any more welcome.

When you’re at risk

Vein valve damage leading to varicose and spider veins doesn’t happen to everyone, but there are factors that increase your chances of developing this vascular issue. Among the most common factors are:

Microphlebectomy as the solution

There are several ways to approach varicose vein removal, and if spider veins are the target of your dissatisfaction, microphlebectomy may be the ideal solution for you. Also called ambulatory phlebectomy, this treatment is typically done on an outpatient basis in-office. Rather than a major surgical procedure, microphlebectomy uses tiny pinprick incisions to hook individual blood vessels. These incisions are so tiny that stitches usually aren’t necessary.

Veins are permanently removed and your body naturally revascularizes itself to supply tissue around the removed vein. Microphlebectomy is a safe procedure. Its only potential side effects are those common to any procedure that breaks the skin, such as an allergy shot or blood sample. The entire treatment is typically performed in less than an hour.
