Facial Spider Veins in Jupiter, FL
Spider veins can be unsightly and cause one to feel self-conscious. They can also be difficult and stubborn to remove. Board-certified plastic surgeon Kim Edward Koger, M.D., F.A.C.S. can offer the help you seek to reduce the appearance of surface veins on the face.
What are Facial Spider Veins?
Facial spider veins are groups of red or blue-colored veins that can appear anywhere on the body, including the face. They do not typically cause pain, but they can cause one to feel insecure due to their high visibility. Spider veins are located near the skin’s surface and can resemble a branch-like pattern. A consultation with Dr. Koger can further determine if your facial spider veins can be treated.
The Best Candidates for Vein Treatment
If you are suffering from facial spider veins and feel self-conscious about your appearance, you may be a good candidate for vein treatment or sclerotherapy. Patients of all ages can seek out treatment for facial spider veins though women who are pregnant or nursing may be advised to wait before seeking out this procedure.
Planning Your Sclerotherapy Treatment
Dr. Koger will consult with you regarding your vein treatment and will discuss your expectations and the procedure’s possible results. Every individual is different, so it is important that your procedure be tailored to your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Koger will address any questions or concerns you might have and how a sclerotherapy treatment can help you with your condition.
Your Sclerotherapy Procedure
Your vein treatment will involve an injection of sclerosing solution into the facial spider veins, which may require between five and 40 injections during each session. During the procedure, you will remain comfortable and may bring along a book or something to listen to. You may feel a small prick as the injection is performed and a burning sensation. Each session lasts approximately 15 to 45 minutes though the number of sessions needed will be determined by your individual situation.
After Your Vein Treatment
After your sclerotherapy procedure, you will be able to return immediately to normal life. However, you must keep in mind that at first, your facial spider veins may look worse before they begin to decrease in appearance. There may be some redness and bruising, which will lessen over the subsequent weeks.
How Much Does a Sclerotherapy Procedure Cost?
The cost of vein treatment varies, depending on the extent of cosmetic treatment necessary to achieve the best results. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express® and Discover®. Financing options via CareCredit® are also available.
