Spider Veins Q & A


What are spider veins?

Spider veins are superficial veins that often appear on your legs, calves, or ankles. They’re more visible than other veins because they develop just beneath your skin’s surface. Most spider veins are small and red, purple, or bluish in color.

While spider veins are harmless, their presence might embarrass you. They might also cause a mild burning or slight discomfort.

What are the risk factors for spider veins?

The cause of spider veins isn’t entirely clear. Anybody can develop these unsightly veins, but the following factors increase your risk of getting them:

  • Being a woman
  • A family history of spider veins
  • Physical inactivity
  • Being overweight
  • Sitting with your legs crossed for long time periods
  • Being pregnant or other hormonal changes
  • Using birth control pills
  • Constant standing
  • Older age
  • Sun exposure

Maintaining a healthy weight and staying active can decrease your risk of developing spider veins, but you can’t always prevent them. Fortunately, the aesthetics specialists at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics offer simple, noninvasive solutions that reduce or eliminate the veins.

What is the treatment for spider veins?

Your provider reviews your medical history and examines your spider veins. They create a personalized treatment plan just for you. The specialists at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics offer:

Vasculaze laser treatment

Vasculaze laser treatment is a revolutionary spider vein procedure that uses light pulses to block off blood vessels. Your provider applies the laser device to your skin to allow laser energy to penetrate and destroy unsightly veins. The laser contains a cooling element to enhance comfort.

The treatment is noninvasive, well-tolerated by patients, and there’s no downtime after the procedure. Vasculaze also helps remove birthmarks and cherry angiomas to improve your skin’s tone and overall appearance.

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is another treatment that eliminates unwanted spider veins. Your doctor injects a solution into the vein, causing it to collapse and fade away over time. 

You might require multiple treatments to achieve the best possible results and should notice improvements after 3-6 weeks.
