Nearly 50-55% of women in America are affected by varicose veins, and 40% of males develop spider veins anywhere. Spider veins are something more than a cosmetic problem, and thus taking treatment only for cosmetic reasons is not enough. In the most extreme cases, spider veins can cause a lot of pain and almost become ulcerous. The spider veins are the enlarged veins that fail to prevent the flow of blood to the reverse direction. They mostly develop as a result of excess body weight and gravitational forces. Before you seek treatment for spider veins, you need to consider some factors.


Decide the time of the treatment

Do you reside in a warmer country? If that is so, consider taking the treatment during winter time or cooler months. During winters, you will be more comfortable wearing compression stockings. In most cases, doctors recommend the patients wear compression stockings. So, after the treatment is over, you need to wear medical compression stockings for a week or for a few days.


Take the timing into account

The treatment for spider must be taken only when you have time for the sessions. The treatment for spider veins or spider veins can require several sessions and thus you need to take time into consideration. If you miss out on your sessions, there will be no use of the treatment. Sessions must be taken on a continuous basis.


Look for a doctor in private practice

Most of the clinicians are private doctors who specialize in the treatment of spider veins. So, check out the doctor before booking any appointment. Doctors who practice privately are high on demand.


How much recovery time is needed?

In fact, each kind of spider treatment will have a different set of needs. You will be given detailed instruction on the ways of maximizing the effectiveness and safety of the treatment. If the treatment is minimally invasive, the recovery time will be less. You need to ask your doctor about the time needed for the complete recovery. Accordingly, you can take leave from the work.


Cost of the treatment

The overall cost of treating spider will depend on the severity of the condition and the type of procedure adopted by the doctor. Go for Sclerotherapy, if you wish for cheaper treatment. Endovenous Ablation and other surgical procedures are expensive. Look for rebates and discount offers.


The number of treatments needed

Take an appointment with the doctor and inquire about the number of sittings or sessions that would be needed. It will be determined by the severity of the problem, the kind of treatment prescribed by the doctor and how fast your body will respond to the procedure.

Apart from the above considerations, you also need to think how much the treatment will hurt. Procedures like Endovenous ablation, Sclerotherapy, etc., will cause mild pain only. It is important to find natural ways of treating the condition.
