If I Got Spider Veins While On Depo Provera Shots Will They Fade After I Stop Depo Provera
Probably Not: Although spider veins may have appeared while taking these shots, it doesn't necessarily mean they were the cause of their development. While hormonal influences do play a role in vein issues, stopping the shots is not likely to make the veins disappear. General rule is once they're there, they are there, and must be treated to resolve, which is easily done by a combination of laser and injection. ...Read more

I'm a female teenager and keeping getting thin purple spider veins on body, such as legs, back of my neck, arms how can I stop them? What's causing them?
Genes: There is probably not alot you can do to prevent these. They probably are due to a genetic predisposition. You may want to seek a medical consultation from a dermatologist to exclude any possible medical conditions (improbable). Laser or ultasound guided sclerotherapy may provide eradication of some of these lesions but they are likely to recur and require repeat treatments. ...Read more
Heredity: Far and away, the major cause of varicose and spider veins is heredity. Other factors can contribute to their development if you have inherited a tendency to get varicose veins in the first place. These include prolonged standing, age, pregnancy, hormones, and trauma. Surprisingly, obesity has not been shown to be a cause of varicose veins. It does increase the risk of complications though. ...Read more
Vein evaluation.: If you have a few spider veins then sclerotherapy would be the treatment of choice. If you have many spider veins then you should consider having a venous evaluation with a venous reflux ultrasound to see if you have underlying reflux (leaking vein valves) which may be the cause of the spiders. A vein specialist would be able to evaluate you. ...Read more
2 ways: Laser or injection with a sclerosing agent (chemical which destroys the vein). Often, patients will require multiple treatments. We offer both treatments here at TLC aesthetics in tampa, florida. High concentration saline (saltwater) is no longer the standard of care for treatment of this condition given it being less safe and effective than current technology. ...Read more
Seals the vessels: The sclerosant irritates the tiny spider vessel where injected, causing it to clot and shut off flow. Spider vein clots do not break off and travel to cause pulmonary embolism or stroke (that occurs with the deep leg vessels that develop clots, not spider veins on the skin's surface). Most sclerosants are mild and nontoxic such as Hypertonic Saline or aethoxysclerol. Injector skill is critical! ...Read more
Multiple options: I don't think that there is a single "best" way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read more
Only the tiniest: The "gold standard" still is sclerotherapy, but lasers are becoming more effective and with less side effects, if performed by an expert in laser therapy, but can be more costly. Sclerotherapy requires skill and precision as well, but has a very low side effect or risk profile, and can work on small to medium spider veins. Larger varicosities will require surgery or endovenous approaches. ...Read more
Not really: Usually when people talk about circulation problems they are talking about arterial flow. Problems here wouldn't have any impact on causing spider veins. On the other hand, spider veins can result from having larger veins that aren't working properly below the surface of the skin. So technically, there is a venous circulation problem, but it is usually so minimal that you never in any real danger. ...Read more
No and Yes: There is no good way to prevent spider veins, nor is there any way to cure them. Sclerotherapy which involves injecting them with a solution such as sotradecol or polidocanol is a good way to treat them, but needs to have maintenance in 1-2 years as they pop up in other sites. ...Read more
Pregnancy + genetics: Many people first notice spider veins during pregnancy. Usually there is also a family history of veins. Normally spider veins improve to some degree over the first few months after delivery. Veins generally get worse with subsequent pregnancies. Graduated compression stockings may help minimize worsening of the spider veins as well as symptoms (such as leg heaviness, aching, etc). ...Read more
