Venice’s leading board-certified physicians and vein specialists, Drs. Rasouli and Mazloom offer minimally-invasive treatments so you can get rid of spider veins. While most concerns are cosmetic in nature, they do approach diagnosis and treatment with caution since spider veins could also be a sign of venous disease.
Together, they treat thousands of patients at ReJUVA Dermatology, Vein, and Skin Cancer Center in Sarasota County, for various conditions affecting the body’s circulatory system, including spider veins.
Spider veins, in essence, are damaged veins. The condition occurs when the valve inside the vein weakens and struggles with pushing blood in one direction. Thus, resulting in blood pooling in the vein and putting pressure on the vein wall. This continued pressure weakens the vein wall and causes them to bulge and become visible under the skin’s surface.
The exact cause of spider veins is unknown even though hereditary, trauma, pregnancy, hormonal changes, and sun damage are believed to be primary factors influencing the condition.
Dr. Rasouli is a double board-certified expert in vein therapy and is one of very few physicians in Sarasota who received extensive training in vascular disease diagnosis and treatment. She is recognized by the ABVLM, the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, the gold standard in vein care.
She believes that self-care plays an important role in the prevention of spider veins, and this includes:
Dr. Rasouli and Dr. Mazloom use various laser treatments that precisely treat the spider veins and varicose veins. They use lasers or RF technologies specifically designed to treat spider or varicose veins to improve the circulation in your leg and give you more youthful looking legs.
These treatments are minimally invasive with minimal side effects or downtime.
Spider vein treatment options depend on how severe they are, as well as the amount of discomfort they may cause. Our vein doctors approach each patient with the understanding that they are unique and require a personalized treatment plan. They’ve helped many patients treat and manage their condition with sclerotherapy.
This treatment is one of the most effective, and common treatments options for spider veins. It is minimally invasive and can also assist with the management of discomfort and pain. During sclerotherapy, your dermatologist injects a sclerosing agent (a liquid or foam solution) directly into the affected vein.
The procedure reduces swelling and causes the vein to shrink and become less visible, and fade. It may take 2 to 4 treatments for the best results. Patients are also advised to compression stockings to assist with applying consistent pressure to help with blood flow.
It is important that you discuss any treatment concerns during your consultation. Your physician or dermatologist will also go through the potential risks and side effects with you. This may include:
You may also experience some pain, burning, or a stinging sensation in the injected vein during sclerotherapy in Sarasota County.
For peace of mind, contact the vein experts in Southwest Florida, Dr. Rasouli and Dr. Mazloom. They can guide you through diagnoses and treatment options for your spider veins, and check for any potential underlying medical conditions that your visible veins may be a symptom of.
