What is spider vein treatment?
Spider vein treatment is a cosmetic procedure that reduces or eliminates surface vessels or spider veins commonly found on the face and legs. Unlike varicose veins, spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are not necessary for normal body functioning. They appear as very thin spider web-or tree-like veins on the thighs, ankles, calves or elsewhere on the body and can often be caused by hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight gain and prolonged sitting or standing.
At our office, we help men and women remove these unsightly and uncomfortable imperfections. Our spider vein treatment uses laser or intense pulsed light therapy, as well as a sclerosing solution that is injected directly into a vessel to cause it to slowly fade or disappear.
