Spider veins – visible clusters of veins that typically appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles – are most common in women. They may become noticeable at a young age, or at a much later stage of life. Factors that contribute to the development of spider’s veins include:
- Hormonal shifts
- Weight fluctuations
- Occupations that require prolonged sitting or standing
Spider veins are usually harmless, though they can sometimes cause aching, burning, or pain, especially when you have remained standing for long periods of time. There are two main treatments for spider veins:
- Sclerotherapy – Our doctors will inject the veins with a solution that scars and closes the veins, forcing the blood to reroute through healthier veins. You will see results from this treatment within a few weeks. The same vein may need to be injected more than once.
- Laser Surgery – Our doctors send strong bursts of light into the vein to make the vein slowly fade and disappear.
Your blood vessels should fade over a period of several months after you have received treatment, but they may not disappear completely. There is also the chance that new spider veins will develop in the same area.
We will provide you with detailed instructions for both your pre- and post-treatment care.
