We offer the very best method to eliminate Spider Veins. Sclerotherapy is very effective and there is no downtime. A safe chemical solution is injected into the veins through a tiny needle, irritating the lining and causing the veins to collapse and gradually disappear. In some cases, Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) may be used.
Spider veins are caused by abnormal blood flow and weakening of the blood vessel wall in the affected veins. Any condition or activity that puts pressure on the veins can contribute to their development. Causes of Spider Veins include genetics, pregnancy, prolonged standing and sitting, venous insufficiency, injury and high pressure from Varicose Veins.
The diagnosis is based on the appearance of the leg veins. During a physical exam, the doctor will check your legs and may request that you have a Venous Sonogram or Doppler test to check the blood flow in the superficial veins near the skin’s surface as well as the deep veins.
While unsightliness is the most common reason for removal, Spider Veins may also be removed to alleviate problems with restless legs, aching, burning, and/or cramps. Contact your doctor if you experience any of these problems or if you simply wish to improve the appearance of your legs.
