What are spider veins?
Spider veins, just like varicose veins, are abnormally dilated veins that can be seen on the surface of the skin. Often blue, purple or red in color, spider veins exhibit patterns that can look like lines, tree branches, or webs.
Almost always found on the legs or face, spider veins can be asymptomatic and simply a cosmetic issue, or they can be an indication of an underlying venous disease or varicose veins. Spider veins are treated by cosmetic sclerotherapy.
The Vein Institute approach.
Unlike some, The Vein Institute uses infrared light to expose feeder/source veins for better and longer lasting results. This VeinViewer technology also helps us inject the right vein the first time, preventing unnecessary pain and possible bruising.
We will treat both legs, and any area on the legs, with the largest amount of sclerotherapy that can be safely administered in one session. Not always the case at competitors claiming to be “less expensive.”
At The Vein Institute spider veins are always treated by a doctor or physician assistant with expertise in the procedure.
