About Spider Veins
Spider veins are usually harmless, but many patients with spider veins also have varicose veins, which can be more serious indicators of vein disease. The Vein Specialists offers treatments for cosmetic spider veins that are outpatient and minimally invasive.
Spider veins are usually hereditary, but other risk factors include:
- hormonal fluctuations
- sun damage
- lifestyle or occupations that require long periods of standing
Spider veins can be easily diagnosed during an appointment at The Vein Specialists. A consultation that includes a physical exam and a review of family history can determine if spider veins are present.
At our Varicose Vein Clinic, our experts use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to assess the function of your veins. During a noninvasive procedure called vein mapping, we utilize high-frequency sound waves to generate a visual of the blood flow in your legs and accurately locate unhealthy veins for treatment. This information is used to accurately diagnose the underlying causes of varicose and spider veins and to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.
Sclerotherapy is the most common treatment for non-painful varicose and spider veins. This versatile and effective procedure is used for both medically necessary and cosmetic treatments. It involves injecting a solution into the affected veins, causing them to collapse and fade from view over time. There is minimal discomfort during the procedure, and no anesthetic is necessary. At our Varicose Vein Clinic, we offer personalized sclerotherapy treatment plans that address the unique needs of each patient, providing safe and effective solutions for both medically necessary and cosmetic vein issues.
