Treatment options for Spider Veins

There are a variety of treatment methods for spider veins, and our doctors are adept and skilled at the most cutting-edge technologies available for vein care. While spider veins are generally harmless to your health, they present cosmetic challenges that frequently cause psychological struggles, embarrassment, or other social difficulties. Therefore, it’s important to understand your options for treating your spider veins, and the good news is that you can reduce or eliminate them completely.


Sclerotherapy is a treatment that uses a saline solution to make spider veins go away. This treatment works for both varicose veins and spider veins and uses a tiny needle to pinpoint the veins, inject a liquid involves the use of injecting a saline solution into the offending veins. This solution inflames the walls of the veins and causes them to disappear, either immediately or over the next several days, giving patients a quick, safe, and effective method to improve vein issues. In the following video, you can see veins disappearing through sclerotherapy. (Note for the queasy or faint of heart: Stop the video before 0:17.)



Veinwave is a treatment for spider veins that uses heat rather than saline to make the vein go away. This procedure also takes care of the vein permanently once it has been successfully treated. We prescribe Veinwave in the most visible or delicate areas to treat (like the face), because it has less chance of producing inflammation than other treatments. However, it is also suitable for any area of the body where spider veins appear, including the arms, legs, knees, and ankles. You can see in the demonstration video below how quick and effective this procedure is.



Will my spider veins come back?

One of the leading causes of spider veins is genetic predisposition to them. While our sclerotherapy and Veinwave treatments will permanently delete your current spider veins, your body is still able to generate new ones. If this happens, don’t feel like your treatment was a failure, because your body would have probably created these veins anyway, whether or not you got rid of your old ones. You can’t undo your genes, but you can get treatment that is safe, effective, and fast.
