Spider veins affect more than 40 percent of women, but could this condition be treated in less than 30 minutes?
The Doctors welcome Dr. Albert Malvehy, The Dr. Vein Eraser, and his patient Janna, to demonstrate his procedure, which he says can treat the issue in just minutes. Janna shares that she does not wear short skirts and shorts to avoid showing the spider veins.
Dr. Malvehy injects a sclerosing agent directly into the veins, which causes them to collapse and the body will then absorb them over the course of 4 to 12 weeks. He says both legs can be treated in about 20 to 30 minutes.
But are there any risks associated with this treatment? Dr. Vein Eraser says most people respond well to the treatment, explaining it is more successful and comfortable than the older saline treatment option. He notes bruising, which can last up to a week, and welts, that will fade after an hour, may occur.
Dr. Malvehy compares spider veins to wrinkles, saying they need to be touched up every 2 to 5 years. See the results of the vein erasing procedure below!
