How Are Spider Veins Treated?

A thorough examination should be performed prior to treatment and may require a non-invasive ultrasound session to determine if any underlying problem exists. At The Cosmetic Vein & Laser Center, we are proud to offer two effective treatments and have been doing so since 1997.

  • Spider Vein Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting a solution into the affected veins. This solution irritates the walls of the veins, causing them to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the treated veins will fade from view.
  • Spider Vein Laser Therapy is a safe and effective way to remove spider veins. The laser targets the affected veins with pulses of light energy. This energy destroys the vein, and over time, the vein will fade away.

What Can Increase My Risk Of Spider Veins?

There are several factors that can increase your risk of developing spider veins.

  • Age is one factor, as spider veins are more common in older adults. 
  • Pregnancy is another factor, as the increased weight of the baby can put pressure on the veins. 
  • Standing for long periods of time can also increase your risk, as this can cause the blood to pool in the veins. 
  • Finally, certain medical conditions, such as obesity and constipation, can also lead to spider veins. 

Am I A Good Candidate For Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is a common treatment for spider veins. It involves injecting a solution into the veins, which causes them to collapse and disappear. The best candidates for sclerotherapy have not been recently pregnant and have not had any blood clotting issues in the past. Whether you are considering sclerotherapy or light therapy to address your spider veins, your candidacy will be thoroughly reviewed by one of our specialists prior to your procedure to ensure that it is safe for you.

Am I A Good Candidate For Laser Vein Therapy?

Laser therapy is another option that uses focused beams of light to destroy the veins. Both forms of treatment are generally safe and effective. However, they may not be suitable for everyone. If you are pregnant, diabetic, use light-sensitive medication, or have been diagnosed with herpes, skin cancer, or vitiligo in the past, laser therapy may not be an option for you. However, there are other types of spider vein treatments available to you.

What Is The Recovery After Spider Vein Treatment?

Most patients can resume their jobs and activities the day after spider vein treatment. After your procedure, you should expect at least one follow-up appointment about one month later to ensure that your recovery was successful and uneventful.

If you are concerned about spider veins, we encourage you to call us today to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to discuss these treatment options with you in more detail.
