The Vascular Experts Florida can help eliminate the appearance of spider veins using minimally invasive techniques.

Spider Veins Windermere

Spider Veins Overview

A surprisingly common condition, spider veins affect an estimated 50 percent of the population, though more so in women. Spider veins are fairly harmless but can cause pain and burning. 

Hereditary factors play an active role in causing many vein-related conditions, so preventative measures tend to run few and far between. Fortunately, there are minimally invasive treatments that can greatly reduce the appearance of spider veins and sometimes eliminate them completely.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins appear as tiny blue, red, or purple blood vessels underneath the skin’s surface, usually on the arms, legs, and face. Elevated blood pressure in the affected veins causes this condition. While harmless, spider veins can burn and are sometimes painful. 

Spider veins are often confused with varicose veins, which look similar but are different. Varicose veins can get enlarged and cause pain and may stem from an underlying cause known as venous insufficiency. 

Vascular Experts Florida has extensive experience in treating vein-related conditions. Dr. Lina M. Vargas, board-certified in vascular and endovascular surgery, specializes in diagnosing and treating spider veins.

What Treatments are Available for Spider Veins?

Sclerotherapy 

Sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive technique, offers one of the most effective ways to eliminate spider veins. The technique involves injecting medication into the affected areas in liquid or foam form. The medication works by scarring blood vessel walls, which causes the veins to collapse.

The cost of a sclerotherapy procedure varies depending on the severity of your condition, the location where the procedure is performed, and your surgeon’s educational background and experience level.

ClearV™

ClearV, another minimally invasive procedure, uses laser energy to dry up the blood inside spider veins, which causes the blood vessel walls to collapse. With both ClearV and Sclerotherapy, your body absorbs the dead materials and flushes them out of your system.
