Here at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer a range of treatments that are designed to make you feel comfortable in your own skin. One of the more popular non-surgical procedures that we offer is sclerotherapy in Northern Ireland.

We’ve already written a blog post about what sclerotherapy treatment involves and how it rids you of your spider veins. But if you’re still not sure whether the treatment is right for you, here are some of the most common reasons that people decide to undergo the procedure.

Spider Veins Are Affecting Your Day-to-Day Activities 

People who exercise on a regular basis may be more susceptible to having prominent veins because of their low body fat. As a result, they may decide to exercise less or stop all together because of how self conscious they have become of the results.

Some may even consider exercising more in order to rid themselves of spider veins. However, once they are visible it becomes extremely difficult to eliminate them. Sclerotherapy is an extremely effective treatment that stops spider veins being visible.

Not Feeling Like Yourself

As soon as you’re aware of your own spider veins, you’ll probably become more conscious about other people noticing them too. If this is the case, it’s likely that you avoid wearing skirts or shorts despite wanting to, simply because you don’t want people to notice them.

Both men and women can suffer from visible veins, making both genders self conscious about where they appear. If your quality of life is being affected because of them, it’s a good time to get in touch with a professional for a consultation.

Although you will be unable to undergo this treatment while pregnant or breastfeeding, you may want to book it in your diary later down the line. It’s upsetting but true that a lot of people begin to feel unhappy with their bodies after having a baby. The veins that may become prominent after childbirth are just one of the things that you don’t have to live with if you don’t want to.
