Spider Vein Treatment Procedure


Those are small, red to purple blood vessels, usually appear on legs and face. They resemble spider web therefore they named spider veins. Usually they don`t pose a medical problem, although they can cause pain and uncomfortable feeling. The problem is usually cosmetic. Women have 4 times greater chance of developing spider vein then men. Other rick factors include: genetics, obesity, hormonal changes, a history of blood clots and constipation. Spider veins resulting from pregnancy usually disappear three month after delivery. Anyhow it is recommended to delay the treatment if you decide to breastfeed.

The best candidates for the procedure can be women from all age groups. Usually the procedure preformed in their 30`s to 60`s. Men also can enjoy this procedure at all ages. If there is an involvement of the deep venous system, you may be recommended to go through additional procedure before this one.

The technique used to treat spider vein called "sclerotherapy" which means to make something harder. A very small needle is used in order to inject a special solution called a sclerosant inside the veins. The solution causes the vein to swell which eventually stops the blood flow inside it. Standard procedure usually lasts from 15-45 minutes. Deeper vein treated first. After cleaning the surface with alcohol the doctor injects the solution. A pressure is applied to the area along with gentle massage to prevent bleeding and to get more effective spreading of the sclerosant. It is possible that some vein need more then one injection to close.

Every procedure has its ricks. This one includes bleeding, blood clots formation, infection, allergic reaction the solution and injury to the skin that may leave a permanent scar. Changes in skin pigmentation can also occur. A new network of "spiders" may appear around the treated area which may need additional treatment.

After the treatment you`ll have to wear tight pressure bandage for 72 hours to prevent bleeding and clotting. The treated area may look reddish and swollen with red dots from the injections. These will disappear after a month. There are no limitations for daily activities, although you`ll be advised to avoid long standing and jogging. You also encouraged walking to prevent blood clots.

After a month or so you can undergo another treatment if this is necessary. It is important to understand that only the visible veins are treated. The treatment doesn`t change your venous network properties, therefore, after a while, new veins may appear.

Singapore History

According to legend, Srivijayan prince Sang Nila Utama landed on the island in the 13th century and, catching sight of a strange creature that he thought was a lion, decided to found a new city he called Singapura, Sanskrit for Lion City. (There have never been any lions on Singapore, so the mysterious beast was more probably a tiger.) More historical records indicate that the island was settled at least two centuries earlier and was known as Temasek, Javanese for "Sea Town". However, Sumatran Srivijaya fell around 1400 and Temasek, battered by the feuding kingdoms of Siam and the Javanese Majapahit, fell into obscurity.
