Spider Veins are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They are usually blue or purple in color and twist and turn underneath the skin. They can be caused by age, genetics, obesity, hormone imbalances, history of blood clots, and a variety of other causes.
Bio-oxidative injection therapy directly to the veins is capable of reducing the size and severity of the veins. Like the cellulite treatment, patients may require additional bio-oxidative therapies to optimize the effects and may require more than one treatment.
While there may be some pain with the insertion of the needle under the skin, the majority of patients tolerate the treatment well, noting possible side effects of soreness at the site of injection and bruising for a short period of time, all of which resolve quickly on their own.
