Prepping for Spider Vein Treatment is No Problem!


Though generally harmless, these hair-thin blemishes can be unsightly and uncomfortable for some, and cause one to want to cover up. If you’ve thought about getting them treated or are simply curious about possible solutions, we at Alabama Vein Center are here for you.

You’ll be happy to know that when you schedule an appointment at the Alabama Vein Center you are coming to one of the best vein treatment centers in the nation. At our centers, we are determined to give you quality care and all the information that you might need.

To help you feel more confident about scheduling your appointment, let’s go over some basics about our spider vein treatment:

No matter what medical procedure you are having done, there is always some prep involved. On our website, we have a checklist of preparation measures you can take. You’ll want to review this beforehand. Let’s go over some of the highlights and frequently asked questions. First, anesthesia:While this procedure does not require any anesthesia, if you have a fear of needles a mild sedative can be arranged for you so that the whole experience is more pleasant. Second, clearing the area: It is also important that there be as little obstruction as possible to the area; that means shaving the area of the leg where the procedure will take place as well as refraining from using any ointments or lotions on the day of the procedure. Third, clothing: You’ll want to make sure that you are prepared to wear loose clothing over your compression hose that you will be wearing once the procedure is complete. Lastly, medications: Before you come to your treatment appointment, you’ll want to discontinue any medications, as advised; you should be able to check during your consultation appointment what you can and cannot take prior to the appointment.

Seeking treatment should not be a stressful experience. At the Alabama Vein Center, we aim to provide you with as many resources as possible to keep anxiety in check. If you have any questions, you can always ask questions at your consultation appointment or explore our website to find more information.
