Spider veins are most common on the feet, ankles and legs, but these web-like veins can appear almost anywhere on your body and face. Located in Woodmere, IOIO Studio is pleased to offer spider vein treatment to residents living in and around Cleveland and Beachwood, Ohio.
What are Spider Veins?
Just below the surface of your skin is a network of veins that carry blood back to your heart. Some of these veins are incredibly small, so you never notice them. The reason that spider veins appear is because a flaw in the veins interferes with blood flow, so the blood simply pools inside the vein, which causes the vein to swell. Men and women may develop a single web-like spider vein or several spider veins in one specific area.
What Causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins rarely represent a medical condition that requires treatment, and your family history largely dictates if you are at risk for developing spider veins. Other factors that can cause spider veins include:
- Excessive sun exposure
- Not enough exercise
- Being overweight
- Sitting for long periods of time with your legs crossed
- Sitting and standing for prolonged periods
- Frequently wearing high heels
- Having a diet that is high in sodium and low in fiber
- Chronic constipation
Spider Vein Treatment Benefits
Spider vein treatment at IOIO Studio is a safe and effective way to permanently eliminate your spider veins. With certain changes to your lifestyle, you may never develop spider veins again.
How is Spider Vein Treatment Performed?
IOIO Studio offers spider vein treatment with sclerotherapy. The treatment involves injecting a special solution into the damaged vein. The solution causes the vein to collapse. Your body then eliminates the vein and re-routes blood through healthy veins.
Spider Vein Treatment Recovery
You may feel a slight cramping around the veins that are treated. Applying heat can help alleviate this symptom. In some cases, you may need to have the spider vein treatment repeated in order to completely destroy the vein. We will schedule a follow-up appointment to evaluate your progress.
How Much Does Spider Vein Treatment Cost in Cleveland?
Spider vein treatment may be covered by insurance, but you should verify your coverage. After your consultation, we will explain the fees. If spider vein treatment is included in your medical coverage, you may need to pay first and get a reimbursement from your insurance carrier. We accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards, as well as offer you payment options for your spider vein treatments and other services at our medical spa. We work out payment plans with each customer, breaking down packages to affordable payments with each visit.
Is Spider Vein Treatment Right for Me?
Spider veins rarely pose a medical concern, and most patients seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. The best way to find out if spider vein treatment is right for you is to meet with Dr. Miller for a consultation.
