Treatment Options for Spider Veins

Spider veins are the smaller, less concerning cousin to varicose veins. While they may not cause the discomfort and skin issues that varicose veins do, they can cause a great deal of emotional dismay as they make you feel embarrassed by your body. Whether they occur on your legs, your face, or somewhere else, you can experience relief with the right spider vein treatments.

What is Sclerotherapy?

The treatment we use most frequently for spider veins and even for small varicose veins is called sclerotherapy. This is a minimally-invasive treatment that requires local anesthesia at the area to minimize discomfort and an injection of a sclerosing agent. This solution mimics what laser beams do in other treatments by irritating the veins walls, causing them to swell shut. You may need two sclerotherapy treatments for full results.

With spider vein treatments, you can stop feeling embarrassed by your skin and can begin to feel youthful again. You will be able to go out in public confidently and can wear your favorite shorts and skirts again.
