Spider Vein Treatment in Monroe, LA
The little network of veins on the surface of your skin cause you to feel embarrassed and less confident. Known as “spider veins,” these cosmetic concerns can be easily treated. Dr. Janine Hopkins, M.D., F.A.A.D., board-certified dermatologist, offers spider vein treatment for men and women in Monroe, Shreveport, the Ark-La-Miss and the surrounding areas of Northeast Louisiana.
What is Spider Vein Treatment?
Spider veins are web-like veins that sit just below the surface of your skin. They may have a reddish, purple or blue color and appear on your ankles, face, and feet. Spider veins do not require medical treatment, but you may wish to have the veins removed due to cosmetic concerns. Spider vein treatment safely eliminates the veins.
What Are the Benefits of Spider Vein Treatment?
- Improves the appearance of the treatment area
- Quick, easy in-office treatment
- Permanently destroys the damaged veins
How Does Spider Vein Treatment Work?
Spider vein treatment works by destroying the damaged veins. Your body will reroute blood to surrounding veins so that the circulation is not affected.
What Should I Expect from Spider Vein Treatment?
The spider veins may still be visible after the treatment. Over the coming weeks, the veins will slowly fade. Dr. Hopkins will recommend some lifestyle changes to prevent new spider veins from developing, such as:
- Taking breaks when sitting or standing for long periods of time
- Women should alternate between high heels and flats
- Elevating your feet for 20-30 minutes at the end of each day
- Wearing compression stockings
