Effective treatment for spider veins on the legs in the Frederick area
Dr. Ron Prussick is a Frederick area dermatologist who offers new and existing patients a wide range of dermatological services. Whether patients are seeking medical dermatology or cosmetic dermatology, they are often surprised at all he has to offer through his state-of-the-art practice. Some patients who are dealing with conditions such as spider veins on the legs may be seeking treatment for them through a dermatologist.
Dr. Ron Prussick is happy to offer a treatment for spider veins on the legs known as sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy has been used in the past for both varicose veins and spider veins, though Dr. Ron Prussick uses this treatment specifically for spider veins. Spider veins are a cosmetic concern and can be improved with the use of sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is performed with a very precise, small needle that administers a sclerosing agent into the specific veins of concern. This sclerosing agency is known for causing the vein to shrink down while redirecting blood flow to healthier veins. In time, the veins will absorb into the skin and will be unnoticeable.
Patients who are considering sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins on the leg are encouraged to speak to a professional such as Dr. Ron Prussick and the team of Washington Dermatology Center to learn about the procedure and how it works. Patients do need to consider scheduling in downtime for healing as discoloration of these veins may occur afterwards. This is why many patients who are having spider veins treated on the legs often do so during the winter months while they are wearing pants to cover them as they heal. Sclerotherapy is completely safe and is approved by the FDA for cosmetic use as well as for the use of varicose veins in the legs.
