Spider Veins Treatment

Spider veins are small veins just below the surface of the skin and are less than 1mm in size. In most cases these are drained by an incompetent reticular vein.

They occur more frequently in women than men. Some women may experience pain the the region of spider veins during menstruation. Often they may occur after childbirth.

Spider veins are small, twisting veins that line the surface of the legs and face. They may occur as a result of venous insufficiency, but many patients choose to have them treated for cosmetic reasons.

Although spider veins are not an immediate cause for medical concern, they can be a sign of an underlying vein problem. It’s essential to receive an evaluation at The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy regardless of whether you are experiencing any symptoms.

Through an examination of your venous system and circulation, Dr. Allen can help you find a treatment method that addresses the medical and cosmetic concerns you are facing.

Why Treat Your Spider Veins?

More often than not, spider veins are treated for aesthetic reasons.

If you decide to treat your spider veins, you will notice an immediate aesthetic result. Instead of the red and flushed appearance that you’re used to, your skin will look smooth and bright. Additionally, you may look younger as a result of an improved complexion.

What Treatments Are Available?

At The Center for Advanced Vein Therapy, Dr. Allen offers several treatment methods designed to permanently eliminate spider veins. Before recommending any treatment, however, Dr. Allen will perform an evaluation to gain a better understanding of your venous system.

An initial consultation will allow you to discuss the issues you are experiencing, whether they are medical or cosmetic. Based on your goals for treatment, Dr. Allen can examine the treatment area in question and recommend a course of action.

Typically, evaluations are performed using ultrasound technology, which allows Dr. Allen to view your venous system below the skin’s surface and assess the productivity of blood throughout the particular region of your body. It’s with this knowledge that he can suggest the treatment option that will produce the most beneficial results for your individual case.

For spider veins, treatment often comes in the form of sclerotherapy, which uses a liquid injection to irritate and collapse diseased veins. The minimally invasive procedure involves only a small needle prick into the vein where the sclerosing agent is administered. You may also benefit from compressions stockings if you have spider veins located in your legs.

You can watch your spider veins disappear before your eyes as the solution is injected. As a result of the vein walls collapsing, blood reroutes to healthier veins while your spider veins close.
